VW Beetle 1974 Orange Tax Exempt 11 months MOT For SaleHere we have a wonderful example of the 1974 1200 VW Beetle Tax Exempt in wonderful bright Orange. (Some of the photos make it look red, but trust me, its very orange)
I bought this bug as a birthday present for my mumís 60th. But unfortunately due to the lack of power steering she just found it too hard to drive.
We have both been incredibly indecisive about selling or keeping the car but we finally agreed it needs to go to a home where it will be used (rather than just being garaged).
As my mum can not drive it, I have been using the car day to day and must say that it holds up perfectly in busy London traffic. These cars were made to go on forever and hold there own in all environments. Many people class the 1200 as the true peoples car (a term that was crowned for the beetle due to its reliability and dependence). The 1200 was the base model with drum brakes and a 1.2L engine, although as the years went on beetles with bigger engines were produced, VW proceeded to make millions if 1200ís as that was the car that was selling most. A small city car, that was easy to maintain and cheap to fix was all people wanted and the 1200 certainly provided that. This also means that if the car does run into any problems (even all these years later) there are plenty of parts around.
The car looks great it has 11 months MOT and has done 81600 miles. It has the desirable flat windscreen and also has the classic sleepy eyes. An owner in the past has also put small visors over the windows, which I think look great but could be taken off if they are not to your taste.
The car has also been equipped with a Sony radio that has an AUX input and Pioneer speakers.
The tyers look new (although I am not sure how old they are) they have plenty of tread.
This car would also be an ideal first car as insurance is VERY cheap!!!
It is not a show car but with a little work could look in tip top shape. As a day to day driver it certainly looks like another else on the road and you will find many people smiling at you as you drive by.
There are some small rust bubbled dotted around the car and the back bench seat is marked (it looks like it is peeling but when you run your hand over it is smooth, just some discolouration). Front seats are perfect.
