1969 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

We were told that this VW was originally purchased in Plattsburgh, Y by
a gentleman in the service for his wife. Original owners manual
and ID card are included. They had the car from new for
over 30 years and it was a well cared for vehicle that was garaged and
not used in winters. The car was originally red color. The next owner
used the car for a number of years and restored it about six years
ago. The car was properly disassembled for painting and had all new
weatherstripping and fender beading and painted Peru Green as shown in
the photos. This is a 1969 original color but it was not available on
the convertibles originally. It is an extremely clean and well-running
Beetle and we have loved it for every minute and it is ready for its
new home.
Engine and mechanical summary : The VW starts and runs extremely well.
We have never had any major issues and have always marveled just how
well and reliably it has run. It has a 1600 cc VW engine that is a
1969 serial number. I was told that the engine had been rebuilt and
it runs excellent. Both red indicator lights show a working generator and
adequate oil pressure. Engine cylinder compression is 110 lbs. per
cylinder. Clutch is smooth and sure and transmission shifts smoothly
and stays in gear properly. There is no grumbling or howling from the
rear differential and the muffler and exhaust are in great shape.The
brakes are very good and the tires are like new.
The body and paint are immaculate with no dents or scratches
and no rust. Underbelly has no rot and heater channels are in
perfect condition. Sills and wheel wells are very nice.also.
The interior carpeting, eat covers door panels and top were all
replaced new when restored and are perfect LN condition. There is
cracking and repair of original black vinyl dash cover in the strip
below the glove box. It has a Pioneer CD radio with its amplifier
located in bonnet with extra speakers in back behind rear seat. We
don't use the stereo much but it is nice. The VW has the original jack,
tool roll and an extra fan belt under the bonnet. The car also comes
with two sets of keys, car cover, new black top boot cover
the original owners manual with original owner information, br>two different service related manuals and
extra misc parts for oil changes etc.
