This super cool, usable and very impressive VW Beetle 1600 has arrived with us from a regular customer who has spent the past 12 months taking the vehicle to a very high standard. TAO 329S was imported into the UK from Japan as an original RHD car with a structurally outstanding bodyshell and has been nicely detailed, mechanically prepared and fettled for regular use. Having had the program of work carried out, the VW was then faultlessly driven over to us.
In March 2020 the VW was treated to a full underside waxoyl, Cat 2 immobiliser and alarm system and over the following year the Beetle had a new full coverage sound deadening kit, re-trimmed seats and new door cards, quarter panels, new carpets, full service, detailed paintwork and new classic sport gear shifter. The VW was MOT tested, and in total over the past 12 months £4000 has been spent on this excellent example.

We can't say enough how good this bodyshell is, it's never been welded, never required major work and clearly very original. Its rock solid, and finding such a rust free original bodyshell like this is difficult. The paint finish is of a very high standard. TAO 329S is further enhanced in appearance with lowered suspension, original Porsche Fuchs wheels and on the road it drives superbly with a sweet, superb running and strong 1600 twin port engine. It offers a great stance with its lowered suspension and the VW feels great in modern traffic and with the shorter stroke gear changes, less road noise from the Dynamat kit and sounds great with the Bug pack exhaust.

This is a VW that grabs attention and turns heads wherever it goes, it's a rock solid, stunning looking example that's ready to enjoy.
