1970 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic
This auction is a NO RESERVE listing. The winner at the end of 7 days will be the new owner. Again NO RESERVE so please have your finances in order before you bid.
I bought this car on November 11th 2008 as a rat rod. The top was already cut down, the doors were already filled and the supports were in place. After a year of driving it we decided to turn it into the car you see now. To say this is a head turner would be an understatement. You can’t drive this car or trailer it anyplace without getting smiles, stares or conversation. Everything is either new, replaced, rebuilt or custom fabricated. The last 4 years it’s only seen the road twice and that was for a car show where it won first place both times. Over the last 2.5 years it’s been sitting in a garage covered. Last week we pulled it out, got it running, cleaning it up and now it’s being listed here for sale. NO RESERVE
Titled as a 1970 VW this permanent convertible started life as a sedan. The top was cut, the doors were filled and supports were welding in place to make sure this show stopper didn’t fold under any pressure. Here’s some details both good and bad.
The bad – (1) The electrical is a mess. The headlights, tail lights, dash do not work. Under the hood is a mix of cut and spliced wires. It really should be rewired but it starts, runs, drives, shifts, stops as it should. The air bag suspension also works flawlessly. (2) The motor was pulled and freshened up in 2008 with only 50 miles but its dripping oil now. Again you can drive it but the motor does have an oil leak. (3) No radio or speakers
The Good – It sat for 2.5 years and we got it up and running within 15 minutes. The motor Runs Strong once warmed up but needs some tapping on the accelerator to keep it running when first started. The Transmission shifts with no issues. The air compressor, air bag suspension and switches all work no issues.
Ne, replace, fabricate, custom details about the car.
All New interior. Looks new no wear what so ever (front seats are brand new not just covers.)
Wide fenders all the way around
New rims and tires (still some dimples on the tread they are that new)
Front disc conversion
NEW narrowed from beam
Completely custom air ride suspension with gauges, 10 switch box, chrome tank and bump stops
All bushings, linkage, tie rods, etc are new
Rebuilt motor (even with the oil leaks)
Head light, LED tail lights
The VW clearly has thousands in fabrication and parts but it still needs to be gone over before driving it any long distances. It’s been sitting for 2.5 years before last week. We’ve driven it a few miles and not had any issues but just to be safe you’ll need a trailer to transport. (again no roof so make sure it’s sunny or bring something enclosed.)
All pictures below are from today. All good and bad. The paint looks great but it’s not flawless. The rear trunk had a piece of metal under the carpet. I’ve removed it to show you the cuts and rust holes in the trunk area. The frame, heater channels, pans etc all look great. It’s just the trunk area with the holes.
Here's a Youtube video of the suspension... https://youtu.be/AhFui1VNpdcOn Apr-23-17 at 17:41:01 PDT, seller added the following information:
