‘64 Volkswagen Beetle – small window – show quality restoration




….‘64 Volkswagen Beetle – small window – show quality restoration £13,995.00 Make Volkswagen Model 1200 Year 1963 Transmission Manual Fuel Petrol Engine Size 1,192 ccm Mileage 64,700 Miles Emission class — Beautifully restored and finished to an exceptional, show-wining standard, Absolute Classic Cars are delighted to offer this stunning small rear window 1964 Volkswagen Beetle 1200. Having been owned by a previous keeper for a number of years the Beetle has been completely stripped to a bare rolling chassis and subject to detailed and comprehensive restoration, with works including:Body – Completely taken back to bare metal, with wings, doors, bonnet all removed to allow thorough inspection and remedial repairs carried out as required. Floor pans taken back to bare metal and repainted black. The body has then been professionally repainted in Volkswagen L360 Sea Blue with as much care given to the interior / underside as on the main body itself and when re-assembly took place the Beetle was fitted with all new wing, window, door, deck and bonnet rubbers.Suspension / Brakes / Wheels – All components were stripped and cleaned. Larger items have then been painted / powder-coated before being built back up with all new bushes, ball-joints, tie-rod ends, bearings etc. The brakes have been fully overhauled and all new brake lines installed and the original wheels have been shot-blasted, painted and fitted with tires and chrome hubcaps.Lighting / Electrics – All lens, chrome bezels and wiring have all been replaced and are in as-new condition. Chrome / Brightwork – Again all new bumpers, side trim, mirrors, light lens surrounds, window inserts etc are new. The only chrome original to the car is that of the front quarter windows with this showing some minor pitting.Mechanical – We are led to believe that the engine / gearbox are original to the car. Since coming to us we have carried out a full service, including oil, filters, plugs, points, condenser, we have also fitted a new exhaust and in order to maintain her originality we’ve fitted a newly refurbished (original spec) Solex 28 PICT/1 Carburetor. The Beetle has since been professionally tuned and it is fair to say the 40bhp motor suits a more leisurely drive but we are delighted with how well the 1200 engine and gearbox perform. We’ve also inspected the heater exchangers, replaced the exchanger to body flexi-hoses, fitted new lever mechanisms and adjusted the system accordingly.Interior – Prior to coming to Absolute Classic Cars, the Beetle was really let down by a poor quality interior, cheap carpets and badly fitting after-market seat covers; with an eye for detail and in order to lift the Bettle to what we feel is a ‘show quality’ car we then completely stripped the interior. She now has an original perforated head-lining fitted, the badly worn steering wheel has been refurbished, we have fitted a bespoke sisal carpet set with new underfelt to reduce road noise and the seats / door cards have both been fully retrimmed in slate / off-white and we have even fitted a removable parcel shelf behind the rear seat, a new pair of sun-visors and a set of semi-tailored over mats. The ivory switch gear all remains in good working order and the car has an original Blaupunkt radio fitted (though this is purely for show, but could be refurbished to working condition, potentially with phone connectivity).She comes with two sets of keys, valid MOT (Nov 2018), recent receipts, an Autopress Workshop Manual and currently shows a recorded 64700 miles. In the various journeys we’ve taken her on, this beautiful ’64 Beetle has received so many positive comments; people waving and great big smiles from young and old alike.

VW Volkswagen Beetle 1200 Ruby Red 1970 ‘Ruby’ – Beautiful!




….VW Volkswagen Beetle 1200 Ruby Red 1970 ‘Ruby’ Beautiful! A very reluctant sale. Our son’s first car. He has been attracted to the water-cooled world and we have no space for Ruby. We don’t want to keep her outside. MOT to May 2018. Beautiful colour. Bright chrome work. Patina to bumpers (I’m told it’s ‘cool’). ‘Zoom Tube’ exhaust – unmistakable exhaust sound. Ruby runs smoothly and strongly – engine, gearbox, steering, brakes all good. Electronic ignition and ‘Flamethrower’ coil – starts easily and runs well cold and hot. Rear belts. Recent new front tyres. New black wiper arms fitted today to match the ‘Cal’ style black window rubbers. CD radio, rear speakers and powered subwoofer. Recent £3.2k spend on a new set of fibreglass wings from Tom at Day Mouldings (the best quality), professionally painted and fitted at well-respected Bullibarn along with associated replacement and repair to a few rusty areas then fully under sealed. Ruby is solid and ready for another enjoyable summer of shows and parades. Many compliments and enquiries to buy during car shows earlier this year including Cars on the Green, Maldon Car Show, Cressing Classics. A great deal of paperwork reflecting the regular maintenance over the years. Classic tax £0. Classic insurance. Use as is or take to the next level with a nice beige interior with the posh carpet from Newman’s or even go as far as to convert to electric power by Richard at Electric Classic Cars – Ruby is ready for another 47 years on the road, beyond fossil fuel power!
