This is a restored to stock 1965 VW Beetle. The restoration was done from the pan up, and all old paint has been stripped and professionally repainted. The body, interior, dash, engine compartment, and trunk have all been painted the original Bahama Blue. The pan was painted with POR-15. There are no scratches or dents. The car has an original gas heating unit, but I have not hooked it up. It was refurbished by the previous owner, but I have not tried to use it because I live in a warm climate. The car runs and starts great, it shifts smoothly, and it has a 1300 motor. I havenâ€™t personally been through the motor, except for replacing some of the seals. The previous owner did some engine work. The restoration is nearly done, and we keep it garaged.

There are a couple of minor things that still need to be restored. The windshield wipers are working, but they donâ€™t have two speeds and they currently move back and forth too quickly, the engine compartment latch is missing the part that bolts to the body, the front bumper has some pitting in the chrome on the driverâ€™s side, the 4 extra bumper bars are missing, and the horn isnâ€™t working. I donâ€™t have receipts for all the work that has been done, and the original mileage is unknown. There are no signs that the car has ever been in a wreck, no rust, and I have the clean Utah title. Thanks for looking.
