Very solid and rust free example of a early Beetle. It's easily the most desired of all period VW colors Strato Silver.

Also every registration from new and all owners were in California.
Freshly painted on a down to bare metal repaint. The interior was also painted so all paint is fresh and beautiful. Original Red interior with new German weave carpets and a new headliner. The Ragtop hardware was replaced and slides with ease. All rubbers were also replaced.New wide white wall tires, owder coated original wheels and all matching numbers to boot. Thefit and finish is spot on everything closes and fits perfect. WOW!!!

    • The last owner parked this beauty in 2010 and I purchased it in 2014 and being it was super straight and original it deserved a make over. And when we started pullingpanelsoff
    we found factory hash marks everywhere very cool to find such a unmolested car.
And of coarse it starts first time every time. For being 60 years old this little bug has been well cared for and it shows. I also went through the engine and brakesreceipts attached. Everything is in good working condition.
All in All these early VW Beetles are getting harderand harder to find in this original unmolested condition. And to find one like this with all owner history from new is very rare. And they are becoming highly collectible...Please email or call with any questions. I can help with shipping quotes and arrangements.
