1975 VW Beetle 1200cc, Only Done 24000 Miles…….£6500………


….FOR SALE 1975 1200cc VW Beetle which has only covered 24,000 genuine miles from new. When I purchased the car in 2017 it had only covered 24,000 miles from new, been stored in a garage for over 20 years by the previous owner. It had never been welded or sprayed and was totally original with the majority of the panels in excellent condition as the car had been waxed oiled from new. The Beetle has had 3 previous owners from new. The first two owners were father and son from Solihull. The 3rd owner who lived in Coventry was at university when he purchased the car in 1996. As the tax disc shows the car was only used for one year then taken off the road as the alternator needed replacing, which he couldn’t afford to do at the time. The car was then stored in his brothers garage for 20 years until his brother moved house. The car was then left on his friends drive for 12 months while he decided what he was going to do with the car. When I purchased the car in September 2017 the car was not in the best of shape as standing outside had taken its toll on the bodywork. I knew when I discovered the car it was worth saving. The car had a full restoration which took me 18 months with pictures to back this up and on March 2019 after months of hard work and thousands of pounds spent the Beetle which had been hidden away for 22 years was back on the road where it belongs. The interior, engine compartment and boot area are totally original including the paintwork (Miami Blue) which is the same when it left the factory back in March 1975. I have kept all the original parts that have been replaced I.e wheels, hub caps, door cards etc, which will also be included in the sale. I took the Beetle to a couple of car shows last year after putting it back on the road which has attracted a lot of interest with the condition of the car especially with it being 45 years old. Because of lack of use and storage issues I’ve now decided to sell my pride and joy as the car cover I am using is starting to cause a couple of blemishes on the paintwork which will probably mop out.As always I would recommend a viewing as this is a 45 year old classic car before making offers but I’m sure the first person that sees the Beetle will buy. (This can be carried at social distancing). Any inspection is welcome, first to see will buy this amazing vehicle which is now m.o.t and tax exempt, I’m selling the car at a realistic price so no silly offers or time wasters please, contact me for any more information, thanks for looking.

Unrestored 1960 1200cc Gulf Blue VW Volkswagen Beetle 58000 miles from new




….Quality Parts for Rear Engine VolkswagensUnrestored 1960 1200cc Gulf Blue VW Volkswagen Beetle 58000 miles from new Here for sale is in my opinion the best year Volkswagen Beetle ever made. This car was built in 1960 and left Wolfsburg destined for Norway. Being a 1960 built (61 model) it has all the best features of the older models like small windows, Popes nose number plate light, Small Snowflake rear lights but has indicators instead of semaphores a full syncro gearbox and the more powerful 40hp 1200 cc engine which make it a perfect drivers car. And it drives absolutely amazingly.   This little Beetle was bought by Mr Martinsen for his wife from Karlsens Bilforretning in Honefoss Oslo on the 9th of November 1960 and still has the sales document, Service record and owners manual in the glovebox. The car has covered just 94580 km (58769 miles) in 60 years and is still on its original engine proven by the sales record.   I bought this beetle off the second owner who bought it from the deceased estate of Mr Martinsen. I am told the car was parked up in the 1970s until it was put back on the road a few years ago by the second owner. There are still some newspapers under the back parcel shelf from 1966 which must have been there all this time. It would be a shame to remove them!   This car is unrestored only having a bit of paint in its life but the body is I would say 90 % original paint. The interior is 100% original even down to the carpets and cloth headliner. Both obviously show signs of age after 60 years but are in very good condition. The seats are very nice with no tears, slight wear on the drivers seat back but not holed. The paint is very presentable but has stone chips and a few scrapes here and there on the body as you would expect on a 60 year old original paint car. I would say it’s a Patina car but very mild patina. The condition overall is that of a 10 year car not 60.   When the second owner acquired the car it had later style lights and a 1964 style decklid on the car. Apparently Mrs Martinsen was not happy that just over a year after she bought the car VW changed the rear lights to the newer style so she had these fitted at the dealer, then another few years she had the engine lid changed to make it look like the current 1964 model. These have obviously been changed back to the year correct items and the colour match is so close you cannot tell they aren’t original.  I have a photo of the car how it was found with the later lights still on the car.   This car has survived in such good condition thanks to the Ziebart wax-oil coating that was applied when new and by the looks of it then every few years. There is no rust on this car anywhere. Until I purchased the car it had never been welded but on closer inspection the rear bumper mounts had holed so these were removed and replaced with best quality Hookys panels, I have pictures of the work and unless I showed you the pictures you couldn’t tell they have been replaced.   The car has been fully gone through, serviced and put through an MOT with no advisories although it did fail as the nearside handbrake cable snapped while on the brake rollers, 2 new handbrake cables were fitted, adjusted and back for the MOT in which it passed with flying colours.   This car was obviously the pride and joy of Mrs Martinsen as she clearly looked after and spoiled it with some lovely accessories such as the Bambus parcel shelf, Tunnel basket, Blaupunkt radio, Chrome indicator switch cover, Steering wheel glove, Rear parcel shelf, Reverse light and mudflaps.   So there we have it. Driving this car is like going back in time, every time I drive it I grin ear to ear and amazed at how nice a beetle can actually drive. If you are after a truly original time warp Beetle to take road trips and make memories with this summer then this is the car for you.  It would be a crime to change anything on it so if you want to slam a beetle and chuck a Subaru motor in it then please don’t buy this car.  This car needs to be preserved so it’s still here in another 60 years and it will be if you take care of it.

Classic VW beetle project (most parts included) 1973 1200cc




….Parts included as pictured.Please study the pictures, I don’t have time to go over loads of emails asking if I’ve got things like window winders (yes they’re there)Brought last yearHad a welder come out and take care of any structural issues (first thing I did)Fair bit spent on new parts as pictured.I believe that almost everything is there nowMay need a few hundred spent on odd bits I’ve not found it needs, may need far less.All glass present.I believe it will run however it’s not guaranteed, if you’re an engine expert and want to hook up power and fuel and see if she turns over like they do on the restoration shows then be my guest. Oil is good and clean in the engine.I was going to finish her up this summer but we’re moving down south so firstly I don’t have the time to finish her, secondly I don’t have the space to keep her when I do go.Probably worth more in parts than as she stands complete.Sold as seen.Any poking and prodding please do it before you load her onto the trailer.I’ve got nothing to hide, everything is very exposed as you can see. Trying to add lots of additional pictures here…I have door and rear passenger cards in fair condition, seats aren’t too bad at all, floor carpet is pretty good
