Very rarely can we describe a vehicle as truly amazing!
This has to be one of the very best Beetles on the market today.
Subject to years of restoration work and endless amounts of money, blood, sweat and probably some tears!
First registered on 4th November 1964. Supplied by The Volkswagen Centre in Brighton.
The history file consists of an amazing amount of information which includes letters and invoices dating from 1965. The car even has the original and very first tax disc which is dated 4th November 1964!
Only 4 previous owners and a total genuine mileage of 102,000.
As you would expect almost everything on this vehicle has either been restored, overhauled, repaired or replaced. All to a very high standard.
The file of invoices total almost £8000 and this excludes a large proportion which related to Labour which has not been accounted for.
In brief, the Beetle has been subject to a professional but sympathetic restoration which includes (not exhaustive):
Full Body Restoration
Engine rebuild including Gasket set, Piston Rings, Pushrod Tubes, Valve Guides, Clutch Kit, Exhaust, Heat Exchangers, Battery, Flasher Unit, Windscreen Washer Pump
Engine Surround Seal and Firewall Seal
Wheel Bearings and Hub Seal
Alternator 55Amp Conversion Kit
Interior Carpet Set
Both Rear Wings (Front wings are original)
Panama Beige Beading
Cross Member rear Left and Right
Heavy Duty Running Boards (German)
Running Boards (Beige)
Bullet Indicators Front (Left and Right)
Various Seals, Gaskets, Bulbs, Brackets & other minor parts
The Interior of the car is original and in Amazing condition. The seats and dashboard are fantastic. The roof lining is tight and has no rips, just a minor/very small area that is scuffed! Its such good condition that it is not worth replacing when it is original and just fine as it is.
The car has been lowered slightly and the front beam narrowed. It sits on genuine Coker white wall tyres that cost almost £500.
On the dashboard you can see the original dealer sticker from 1964 – Amazing!
This Beetle is one of the best examples we have ever seen. The value will continue to increase over the years and represents a sound/useable investment
