1968 VW 1500 Beetle. Original survivor car. 85000 km. Original paint.

….A true survivor 1968 1500 model beetle recently imported by me from Sweden. Just over 85000 km’s (53000 miles) driven. Unrestored original paint car. Speedo, fuel gauge sender, fuel gauge and wheels all have matching date stamps, really untouched! Just passed it’s UK MOT with no advisories (the MOT guy was very impressed with it!). The car is MOT and road tax exempt but I prefer to offer the car with MOT as it gives that piece of mind that the car has ben examined by and tested by a professional. Correctly brake tested, headlight alignment etc. The car was bought in 1968 by a lady who owned it for her whole life keeping it garaged when not in use. The original Swedish VW dealer applied owners tag is still on the drivers interior door panel stating the owners name and address (see pictures). When she became too old to drive she gave it to her daughter (a doctor) who didn’t drive it much but kept it in a warm garage for a few years. Eventually a local VW enthusiast took ownership of the car (around 2016) and did some servicing, oil change etc and used it infrequently and again garaged when not in use. The car has been quite pampered and is a great example with only a few age related marks and small paint touch ups. This is an exceptionally solid car that is original rust free and unrestored. Very rare to find. 1500cc models are a really nice practical classis that drive well. The top model available at the time with 1500cc motor, gearbox with improved gearing and front disc brakes as standard.Inside you will find the fully original untouched interior in great condition. Even original carpets are good. Headliner is superb. The car has not been owned by a smoker. Very clean and tidy indeed. In order to keep the car in good functional condition a few wear and tear items have been replaced.. Fuel lines, steering damper, front shocks, master cylinder, front brake lines (rears were recently done). All 5 tyres recently replaced and like new. New German running boards but with the original running board trims fitted to retain originality. If you appreciate originality you will like this car. All original body panels including wings, doors shut like new, all panels fit superbly. A really nice unmolested example that runs and drives superbly. You cannot replicate originality. Its a one time thing for a car. Once its gone its gone and this still has it.
