1959 Volkswagen Beetle

Tough decision to make but this awesome, iconic car needs a new home. Anyone who knows much about VWs will know about The Bitch, the first known car in the UK to have a restored underside and Patina top side, she was a game changer and some may say the archetypal Rat Ride. In 2017 she had another body off resto, more details on this in photos. I doubt you'll find many Beetles of this age this solid, with the right care it'll see another 60 years, and it's completely rust free! Car runs spot on, engine strong - 1200 30hp which is correct period but not matching numbers. All original interior, that remains unrestored, heaters work perfectly, Abarth exhaust. Detailed chrome Fuchs, wide 6's on the back, skinnies on the front, these wheels are pristine. She was accepted into the Volksworld Show 2018, we drove up from Cornwall to London and back and she didn't miss a beat. Check out the cars Instagram page for more photos: patina_vwbeetle.

Much improved performance and visibility, cheaper and better value than early cars. Excellent traction in snow and rough conditions.
