1974 VW BEETLE, MATT BLACK, CAL LOOK




….1974 Cal (ish) look 1300 Beetle for sale: Black (original colour was a light blue)1300ccResto and conversion carried out by BeetlelinkMOT until May 2019 (although I think legislation is changing so after that it won’t need one)6 former keepers on the V5No tax requiredCheap classic insuranceFibreglass day moulding wingsScat quick shifter I’ve owned this beetle for around 2 years after buying it from a workmate. I think that it was the owner before him that had a very big restoration carried out on the car for by Beetlelink. I have the receipts for this which amount to an eye watering £5780. I’ve got the photos of this and have added a couple to the advert (last two). I bought the car as a stop gap while my long term project car was off the road and it was an itch that I never scratched having minis in my youth but have really enjoyed it and probably wouldn’t sell but I’ve found myself a bit ‘car heavy’ meaning that it’s not really getting used and with my time and parking space at a premium it is probably time to let someone else enjoy it. Since I’ve owned it the car has been well looked after, I’ve: Serviced it (obviously)Put a new brake master cylinder on it because the brakes were binding.New front discs and pads.New front seats.New rear seatbeltsReplaced the wheels and tyres. Tyres are Pirelli with lots of tread.Replaced all the rusty old wings with good quality fibreglass wings (Day Mouldings)New rear lights and lenses.New headlamps (with replaceable bulbs) Had various bits of welding done so all in all it’s pretty solid. Last year it needed some work on the RH heater channel and LH rear arch for the MOT. This is a 44 year old car so there are some not so good bits too – The paint is basically a rattle can finish apart from the wings and rear lights that are unpainted so nice and easy to touch up but maybe not one for people after a show car shine! There are a couple of bits of corrosion, these are on the rear valance (which is cheap and easy to replace), drivers side floor and front beam. All are ok & nothing serious but worth mentioning. Engine drops a bit of oil (don’t they all!). I think this is the oil cooler seals. Engine has no noticeable end float. Both doors are a bit flappy at the bottom. The photos are not the best because every time I go to take some it chucks it down with rain so a couple are a few months old. If you want to see anything specific, just ask & I’ll see what I can do. I’ve got some spares to go with the car (depending on the sale price). These include a pair of replacement doors, a new exhaust, heater cables, original air filter, shiny pulley etc etc Asking price is £2200Payment to be cash on collection or bank transfer. No Paypal please. Car is located in Amersham, Bucks Thanks for looking.

1968 1200 Beetle Cal Look. Volksworld show and feature car. 2276 IDA Magneto




….I carried out a full bare metal restoration on the car in 2013 and built it as a Cal Looker with a 2276 engine. I used as many genuine VW Mexico parts as possible and best quality panels available throughout including a pair of VW heater channels and bottom plates which have the holes welded up and smoothed as I wasn’t planning on using any heating. Genuine VW Mexico front bulkhead, front quarters, rear luggage tray, rear bumper hangers and both doors. I used rust free donor German VW front and rear valances, a good second hand bonnet and repaired the rear quarter panels and body mounts. Wolfsburg West floor pans, with a new framehead bottom plate. The chassis is painted gloss black. 2” narrowed original German beam and 1600 GT gearbox. All new steering and suspension parts – track rod ends, ball joints etc. Front brakes upgraded to discs, new master cylinder, polished copper nickel hard lines etc. The engine is a 2276 with IDAs and Magneto ignition detailed in a 70s style. 1 5/8 header and twin quiet pack exhaust. Original Santana pulley and Race Trim breather box. FK8 cam and Scat D port 40×37.5 valve heads. Full flow with external cooler. The body is painted chinchilla grey and has been colour sanded and machine polished to remove all orange peel. Rebuilt using only stainless hardware with new seals and glass. Detailed stock style wiring loom etc. Interior by Trimming Tonic in a fat biscuit style, with a German square weave carpet, 1200 headliner from Spirit interior. Stock 1200 steering wheel. Berg shifter. The wheels are about to be replaced with a set of Porsche Riviera wheels with 145r15 Michelin XZX front and 185/70r15 Michelin XWX rear tyres. The car has won a few trophies and has been on display at the Volksworld show in 2014, and in Volksworld magazine. At the moment the 2276 is in a friends Splitty, and he is interested in buying it. Currently there is no engine fitted, so at the moment Im offering my car for sale with a choice of the 2276 engine for £13000, a twin carb 1641 engine for £9750, or with no engine for £7000. Any questions drop me a message. Cheers
