1962 VW Convertible Beetle




….Here we have my very rare 1962 convertible beetle for sale. This is a curved oval window bug with flat windscreen so is pretty rare! I imported this from California in 2015 with full intentions of restoring it but unfortunately I have to sell it as I’m building a house and need the money. It took a long time to find one this clean and rust free but also this is a very original car. It still has the original seats and hood along with parking stickers in the window from 1965 and 1966!! It might look a bit rough but this is because someone hand painted it black somewhere along its lifetime which probably protected it over the years. I have the certificate of authenticity from the Volkswagen museum and the car was originally built 8th May 1962 in Germany and shipped to San Francisco. It was originally yellow which you can see in the pictures. We think it’s the rare ‘small tail light’ model but it seems to have lost these along its lifetime. Looking through the car there is very little rust. One of the doors would need a bottom skin but that’s about it. As you can see from the pictures its very clear and rust free and a perfect project car. It comes with all of the bits in the pictures and is a very rare opportunity to build something very special. It starts, runs and drives every time but the brakes are suspect. I can’t find another one for sale. The story before me was it was in a storage container for 15-20 years and was then sold to a local VW shop in California by the trustee after the owner died. As far as we know, there were 2 registered owners in the US, the guy who died and the guy who sold it to me. The engine is not original but the chassis and body are matching. The engine is a 1600cc and came from a 68 convertible. No MOT at present. Car is dry stored in Ringwood, Hampshire. £500 deposit needs paying via paypal within 24 hours of winning bid and final balance paid in cash on collection.
