1971 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

I have listed a 1971 VW beetle that has been mostly restored. I listed it with 5000 miles because when the previous owner replaced the speedometer he must have started at zero, so I do not know the actual miles on the car.I acquired the car over a year ago. The previous owner rebuilt the engine & most mechanical upgrades. He also made all body modifications & painted the car. The engine has been punched out to a 1998cc. It runs strong! The transaxle been upgraded to a posi unit. Tires have less then 5000 miles on them. The interior is very nice. It has all custom gauges (all work) Front led turn signals built in headlights. Rear led taillights are frenched in. Has after market am/fm cd player that does not work. It lights up, I think speaker wires are not properly hooked up. But I would rather listen to the engine talkingthru the header anyway!
Upgrades I have made:1. Rebuilt both empi carburetors (had rust debris from corroded gas tank)2. Replaced gas tank3. Replaced both front strut assemblies (lowered 2")4. Replaced rear shocks5. Installed stainless steel header with stinger (has baffle)
To sum it up: It is a cool little car. I would rate the paint a 7 or 8 out of 10. I probably would also rate the interior the same. I own a car that we did a body off rotisserie restoration so I am a little tough on handing out high ratings.I welcome & actually encourageanyone interested to come and take a look at the Beetle.Please feel free to call me anytime with any questions.Call 765-661-9233 ask for Kyle
