1969 VW Beetle 1500




….1969 VW Beetle 1500 After a long and leisurely restoration I am not looking for my next project so this beautiful period Sea Blue and Cream Beetle is needing a new home. Its had many previous owners but became known to me in 2009 when a friend of mine in the VW club scene replaced the heater channels and done a light restoration on it. A couple of thousand miles were put on the car attending shows, but in May 2010 a stuck carburettor float resulted in an engine fire. Thankfully no one was hurt and other than a warped engine bay lid and smoke damage to the interior all was well. As a show car it was very well insured! But Hiscox did give it a Cat D at the time. I took the Beetle on sourced an engine from VW Heritage and set about restoring the car (body off) In the end between 2011 and now the car has been total stripped, every rubber component replaced, together with all breaking components, wiring loom… Stainless steel bolts used throughout so any future restoration will be east easy. Extensive rust protection and prevention added. There is no rust at all on this car. the list is extensive of work done. I have a file of paperwork receipts etc So it’s a April 1969 Reg Its Tax and MOT exempt (though just passed an MOT today (1st June) to be sure it was up to standard) Long Nose and Tail (pre 1967 look) Disc brakes to the front (drums rear) slightly lowered for a tighter look, brand new continental tyres all round on immaculate Emi 8 rims. Its running on an electronic distributor and starts first time. New engine as noted above new exhaust heat exchangers etc etc Interior is lovely, all but new, though I was never happy with the headlining or door card fit, and certainly I would re do these for this year’s shows scene if I was keeping it. Please get in touch with questions, and to arrange to view, I’ll be sad to move it on, but I am looking or my next project and space is a premium.
