VW classic Karman Cabriolet beetle 1302 not 1303 convertible 1971




….For sale at Johnson Autoworks , Wymeswold This car is in great shape for its age and although not perfect with a little TLC it could be made into a real stunner ,but don’t let that put you off its still a very nice looking thing and has already had many heads turning just on the few runs I’ve done in it locally. I found it in Belgium where it had been stood inside a dry storage unit for a few years . We bought it back and had it running and down at the mot testing station just a day later ,it just needed a battery and some fuel .It failed on some minor points mainly lights and horn not working and just tidying up some previous repairs on the underside . Like any car of this age it has had some welding done in the past but no nasty big patches and it is still very solid . The paint is in generally good condition with only a few blemishes ( not rot) in places and some minor little white spots on the front wings when it looks like some ones buffed through at some point. This is all minor stuff and I would rather be honest ,it’s still a fantastic looking car !! As you can see it’s been fitted with some Carlos fandango flared arches and its sporting a set of very rare 7 and 8 j banded lemertz style steel wheels ,it has a pair of lowered coil springs on the front giving a nice stance while still being very practical to drive . Interior is relatively clean but the rear seat base does have a small tear in it The roof is of very good quality but there is a small piece of trim missing just around the top of the rear side window which should be easily obtained from any decent VW shop like karmann connection ! It also has rear lap belts . Engine runs sweet ,and is fitted with a pair of retro taper tips instead of the normal pee shooters giving it a more deep sounding engine note . It does jump out of reverse if you don’t keep your hand on the gearstick when reversing,this has never bothered me . £5,500 ONO This is being relisted due to the previous person hitting the buy it now button but never actually coming to collect , stringing me along with excuses and then eventually disappeared.Please only hit the buy it now button if you intend to come along and pay for the car .
