About This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
Posted: 04 Jul 2003
WOW! What a great car!!! Total frame up restoration with pictures to prove it! Every thing was redone. The engine was totally rebuilt and only has 1000 miles on it. Top of the line new interior, fabric top with glass rear window. All new original interior, head liner, carpets. Nice stereo with AM/FM/CD. Polk audio rear separate speakers. Custom wide white wall radial tires. Color matched wheels and even air stems and spare tire/wheel. New jack, tire iron. New dash skin. All new seals, rubbers. Custon rock guards. Incredible quality paint job (~$2500). Old style chrome bumpers for a more vintage look. Runs like a dream, gets about 25 mpg. No pulling, shake, etc. All new brakes. Too much to even list about this incredible car. NO RUST!!!!! Odometer reads around 26,000 but I do not think that is the original miles. The person I got it from was a VW nut and restored this for a special someone who left him. He spent 17,000 but wanted to get rid of it ASAP and I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time. My reserve is less than 11,000!!!! The flaws- One vent window knob is broken off, vent fan does not run, engine trunk lid spring is off. I do have an extra lid!! I also have the slightly rusted original bumpers. There are at the right angle some small body imperfections primarily on the doors but they are extremely minor. Obvioulsy it is not perfect but close to it and I dare say the winner will be thrilled!!!! A good daily driver!!!!! I cannot say enought about this great collectible car. It is the nicest retoration I have ever seen!!!!
IN THE SPIRIT OF A GOOD AUCTION AND WITH ALL THE INTEREST, I HAVE LOWERED THE RESERVE TO BELOW 10,000!!!!!! PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THIS GREAT CAR!!!!!! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY UNLESS YOU DO NOT WIN IT!!!!!!!
THANKS FOR ALL THE INTEREST! I forgot that I have a custom made tow bar for this car which would allow for towing it home behind your car!!!! Uses a trailer hitch, I think a 2' ball (? 2 1/2') Anyway, that should make transport easier!
