Volkswagen Beetle 1300 1974 (M) Ivory
First registered on 23rd July 1974 this 1300 Beetle is finished in the lovely VW Light Ivory with Black vinyl trim and Black carpets, its original 1300cc Engine, 4 Speed Manual Gearbox and original Steel Wheels with Chrome Hub Caps.
This car underwent an extensive restoration last year and had a bare metal repaint in Ivory White including the underside of the car and it has 4 new wings, new sills and new running boards.
The interior was completely retrimmed using original 'box weave' black vinyl seat covers, new Black carpets, new door cards, new headlining, new windscreen/window rubbers seals, new door seals, new Chrome bumpers including rubbers, new side mouldings, new headlamps, new Exhaust Tail pipes and new chrome hub caps and was repainted in the original period Volkswagen colour of Ivory White.
In addition, the Brakes were overhauled using new parts including new copper brake lines, new master cylinder and wheel cylinders, new flexi brake lines, brake shoes and springs.
The Engine was found to be in excellent condition, but it was removed for a new Clutch to be fitted and it was then fully serviced with the valve clearances adjusted. It also had a new crankshaft pulley, Fan Belt, Fuel Pump, Oil Strainer, Distributor Cap, Condenser, Spark Plugs, Contact Breakers (Points), Air filter and a new Battery and we have fitted a new Ignition switch along with a Starter Button on the dashboard.
This lovely Beetle really is a delight to drive with a lovely Engine and Gearbox and it will cruise comfortably at 70mph on a Motorway if required. It has only had 5 previous owners in its 44 year life and it has covered a believed genuine 63,850 miles from new, but we can't prove this. It is all clear on all HPi Registers and there is no discrepancy showing on the National Mileage Register.
The car was bought for restoration from a family who owned the car for many years, but unfortunately they had lost or mislaid the original documentation and history file which means we are unable to prove the actual mileage covered, not that this is a major issue on a car that has just been restored.
It is a superb example of a timeless classic and will no doubt be a good long term investment that can also be enjoyed.
Upon sale, the car will receive a new 12 month MOT and pre-sales checkover and will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty which can be extended and upgraded if required.
