1970 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic original

With a rebuilt engine with less than 1000 miles, new shocks, recently replaced front end H bar, new radial tires, good brakes, and newer battery, this survivor could still use more cosmetic work to be respectable. Proof of engine rebuild by professional shop available. The sun roof does not leak, opens, but is aftermarket. Rust is minimal, but more evident on the exterior, with rust spots treated with rust inhibitor, looking black. The floor pans are solid and acceptable, but not excellent. Battery floor area has a few rust pin holes. Tire wheel well solid, almost perfect. Although the exterior is oxidized Maroon, it looks good for its age. A new paint job would make it look new again, and a color could be to your liking. New front seats or front seat rebuild needed. The Steering wheel has no cracks, and the Saphire radio is correct for the year, but not connected. The car is registered with antique plates, insured, and driven regularly, although not every day. Rear tail lights work intermitantly, but brake lights are ok. Included is John Muir's repair book from the 70s, VW owners manual, a VW hand crank body jack, an original jack, and many small replacement parts. In conclusion, mechanically, and body wise, it is in good condition, but it still needs cosmetic small replacements, and repair. Its an easy project car that you can drive with confidence every day. It always starts. FOR SALE LOCALLY, AND CAN BE REMOVED FROM EBAY BEFORE END OF SALE PERIOD.
