VW Beetle - Totally Original!

1959 VW Beetle
LHD, 1200, Amazing original condition throughout!
A very rare chance to acquire a beautifully original Beetle from 1959. Recently imported from California, the car is 100% solid with no rust to mention anywhere. Still retaining its original panels and floors which are in unbelievably good condition, as well as the original matching 1200 motor and completely original interior from 1959, even down to the floor mats! The car starts, runs and stops just as it should and is a dream to drive. The engine runs very smoothly and mechanically the car is in fine form, benefiting from a carb rebuild, tune up, brake overhaul and also a full service including new plugs, points, condenser, oil change etc. The windows operate with ease as though they are new, the quarter lights open and close just as they should and the doors still close with that satisfying clunk. Its easy to see the car has never been apart and has been cherished for the past 61 years! It has had just one repaint, apparently in the 1980โ€™s, in its original rare colour of Diamond Grey Metallic. Although not the highest quality paint job, the car still presents very well and if anything it ads to its charm. There are small marks and signs of wear in many places, but overall this is an absolutely lovely Beetle which is very hard to find in this โ€˜time warpโ€™ condition. A very rare opportunity to own a real piece of iconic air cooled automotive history which is sure to only increase in value. Supplied with the original service booklet, US dealer list, original spare and part tool kit. Just passed its MOT with no advisories and is fully UK registered with V5 present.
