1969 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic
My best friend and I built a1969 V-W into a 1940 Ford Woody over 17years based on plans fromthe 1982 edition of Popular Mechanics. Icarefully methodicallybuilt this with the best parts and craftsmanshipI could find.The title is clear & islicensedas an antique car. The engine is a4 cylinder standard V-W engine. The trim is mostly original except for the 1940 Ford hood. The car as long as I have had it has always been garaged. The roof is vinyl & is attached to the car by the original tack like trim. The original push buttonradio does work but not well. The floor pans were replaced & all the shocks brake pads wheel cylinders master cylinder brake lines a newfuel tanka new clutch cable wheel bearingsthe engine were completely gone over by a V-W mechanic and found it needed a new carb & tune up that he did.The mechanicreplaced the heat box although henever put the hoses on. He went over the engine and some parts were replaced. We have the receipts of all parts and outside work done on it. The car uses only one quart of oil every 2 years & I owe that to leaking. I appliednew fenders & running boards also there are 8 coats of marine varnish applied.
The main reason for selling it is that I am disabled & can no longer give itthe love & attention that I have given it in the past. There has been many hours of work &loveput into this car. I have enjoyed not only the fun of building it but thefun of showing it also. My grandkids and I have been in many parades and classic car shows with it as part sometimes of the VW club.
