1968 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic
For sale is a restored 1968 VW Beetle sedan. Restored and it now has 1,184 miles since completion. Original miles on chassis are around 115,000. The body had to rot or major damage, only minor surface imperfections. Never hit or in an accident. It was then stripped down to bare metal and resprayed with single stage paint. Not the original color. The trunk still has the original color and under the carpet there is still factory markings, kinda cool. The pan is not detailed but was pressure washed and what remains is some of the original heavy undercoating and very little light surface rust. Solid body and pan. Matching pan and body VIN numbers. The car is not a concour car but driver quality that would definitely do very well in a local car show. Will go down the freeway at 70 MPH with no effort.
