ID 8066


1965 - VW Beetle 1200 RHD drive. Full body off restoration in 2001 with external and interior restored and painted to original colour scheme (Panama Beige). Refurbished 1200 Engine has been fitted along with a new charging system, now converted to 12 Volt. New Clutch, 12v Starter Motor, Brake cylinders etc. 15 “Reproduction BRM Alloys x 4. Adjustable front beam. Slightly Lowered. New Front and Rear shocks. 4 new tyres. New retro seatbelts fitted (Front & Back). I have only used this car a few times this year due to health reasons, so it has had a very easy life and has always been dry stored in my garage. Family owned for the past 25 years and always very well cared for. This stunning Beetle is a real head turner and a fun car to drive. It always receives lots of attention and comments. It would also make a great wedding/event car. Any serious buyer will understand that this is a fairly rare example of a 60 year old Beetle that has been well maintained with a complete 1200 engine and original refurbished tinware etc and everything that could be possibly saved as original on the car. I do have the original engine case if someone wanted to rebuild it to match up with the car. I also have a lot of its historical paperwork, including its original bill of sale. Due to its age it does not require road tax and can be insured on a Classic policy


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