Description:

1959 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

1959 Euro beetle, semaphores & a rag top!! I've owned this car for alittle over two years now I love it & wish I could keep it but time to build something else. Prefer local pickup but car can be shipped at buyers expense. Car is VERY low so if being shipped most companies need a 3-4 inch height to be put onto their trailers. It will need to have different suspension installed to raise it up which i have no problem sourcing and installing at buyers expense. Any questions or concerns about this do not hesitate to email or text me.
