VW Volkswagen Beetle 1200 Ruby Red 1970 ‘Ruby’ – Beautiful!




….VW Volkswagen Beetle 1200 Ruby Red 1970 ‘Ruby’ Beautiful! A very reluctant sale. Our son’s first car. He has been attracted to the water-cooled world and we have no space for Ruby. We don’t want to keep her outside. MOT to May 2018. Beautiful colour. Bright chrome work. Patina to bumpers (I’m told it’s ‘cool’). ‘Zoom Tube’ exhaust – unmistakable exhaust sound. Ruby runs smoothly and strongly – engine, gearbox, steering, brakes all good. Electronic ignition and ‘Flamethrower’ coil – starts easily and runs well cold and hot. Rear belts. Recent new front tyres. New black wiper arms fitted today to match the ‘Cal’ style black window rubbers. CD radio, rear speakers and powered subwoofer. Recent £3.2k spend on a new set of fibreglass wings from Tom at Day Mouldings (the best quality), professionally painted and fitted at well-respected Bullibarn along with associated replacement and repair to a few rusty areas then fully under sealed. Ruby is solid and ready for another enjoyable summer of shows and parades. Many compliments and enquiries to buy during car shows earlier this year including Cars on the Green, Maldon Car Show, Cressing Classics. A great deal of paperwork reflecting the regular maintenance over the years. Classic tax £0. Classic insurance. Use as is or take to the next level with a nice beige interior with the posh carpet from Newman’s or even go as far as to convert to electric power by Richard at Electric Classic Cars – Ruby is ready for another 47 years on the road, beyond fossil fuel power!
