This lovely original UK RHD VW Beetle 1300 - VIN No: the details below was first registered in the UK on 23rd July 1974 and it is finished in the lovely VW Light Ivory with Black vinyl trim and Black carpets, rebuilt and uprated 1500cc 'unleaded' Engine (replacing its original 1300cc unit), 4 Speed Manual Gearbox and original Steel Wheels with Chrome Hub Caps.

The car was bought for restoration by specialist 'Red Castle' Classics in Wales from a family who had owned the car for many years in 2016 and this extensive restoration included 4 new wings, new sills, new running boards and a bare metal repaint including the whole of underside of the car. The interior was completely re-trimmed using original 'box weave' black vinyl seat covers, new Black carpets, new door cards, new headlining, new windscreen/window rubbers seals, new door seals, new Chrome bumpers including rubbers, new side mouldings, new headlamps, new Exhaust Tail pipes and new chrome hub caps and the colour was changed from its original Orange to the lovely period Volkswagen colour of Ivory White.

In addition to these works, the Brakes were overhauled with new copper brake lines, new master cylinder and wheel cylinders, new flexi brake hoses and new brake shoes and springs.

The car has only had 6 previous owners in its 46 year life but unfortunately the family who had owned it prior to the restoration lost all of the original documentation and history file and it had been off the road for approximately 15 years when they sold it, so we are unable to say how many miles the car has covered from new. The current recorded mileage is 66,135, but it has only covered around 3,500 on the reconditioned 1500cc Engine which was fitted for the current owner in 2017.

It is a superb example of the timeless classic Beetle and is in overall excellent condition throughout and lovely to drive. It will be a good long term investment and one that can be driven and enjoyed.

Upon sale, the car will receive a new 12 month MOT and pre-sales checkover and service and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty which can be extended and upgraded if required.
