Karmann Convertible beetle 1303 RHD




….For Sale Contact me if you want to make an offer. 1974 VW Karmann Beetle Convertible. Black with 11 months MOT – Drive away today. Historic (free) Road Tax Class. ATS (VW Option) Alloys with brand new tyres. The paint is ok but is dull, faded and lifted in places. This beetle underwent a restoration some years ago and is in a very solid state. Areas which usually rot such as the front and rear inner wings are perfect. Three small repairs (ends of heater channels and footwell) were needed for the recent MOT. It could be enjoyed as it is and or it could have a very light winter restoration and be back at A1 cosmetic condition. A small area under the rear seat has signs of rust and may need a cosmetic repair, along with a 50mm split in the off side cill which would take about 30 minutes to repair or you could leave it as is. I may get round to sorting this area. and will update the add. This is a genuine Karmann convertible converted to right hand drive by a previous restorer and has an unmarked roof canvas with very good condition interior seats. Door cards are old and you may choose to replace. Headlining is undamaged The front steering gear and anti roll bar have benefitted from new rubbers and bushes to remove the typical VW1303 steering shudder. Basically this is a solid Karmann Beetle which could be used and enjoyed as it is or would make a great base for a rolling restoration. Good engine and gearbox with no mechanical issues. One key fits all locks ad ignition. Un cut dash. Front bonnet doesn’t stay up on it’s own – I think the springs have failed so I use a stick to hold it up. The heater control cables for the under dash vents are missing. The wipers do not self park. You have to turn them off at the right place. The washers and horn use separate buttons – not the wiper stalk or horn centre push. This is a 43 year old car and viewing is recommended and welcome. Message or call Simon on 07801900096 Multiple additional photos available – message and I’ll send them via email.
