1965 Volkswagen Beetle

0333 344 2329
ID 9645


Norweigian import, incredible original condition. Never welded, and doesnt need it. Regretted sale due to genuine illness, this car is an unmolested original example. It's still 6 volts, runs and drives beautifully, matching number 1200cc, engine number relates to month vehicle was built. Completely original interior, drivers seat has signs of wear as does headlining. Perfect floor pans and heater channels, 68,000 miles. Original paintwork, apart from possibly offside door which has different colour primer under red top coat. No visible signs of repaint apart from this area. Car was injection cavity waxed from new, and has approx 3mm of original wax on total underside, apart from components that have been replaced. Car has perfect body gaps all around and is still air tight, electrics are all good, apart from temperamental horn and indicators which I am sure is the contact in column switch. The paint has been polished through to the primer in areas, not to create an aged look - its just very old original paint. There is no damage to the underside or the spare wheel well. This is an incredibly original car, unmolested. It is perfect for a very low cost restoration or a patina look vehicle. Cars like this do not turn up very often and you could not buy a wreck and restore it for the money I am asking. This vehicle is part of a cherished collection. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details or photographs. I cannot tell you enough about this car in this advert. I have the original service book and manual. Vehicle will not be released until funds have cleared, vehicle also advertised elsewhere.


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