1970 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

Barn find with GREAT PATINA! This Bug was living in a barn when I found it. I then stored it away for many years in a storage unit.
This is a great weekend project needing new floor pans and fresheningup since it has been sitting for many years. Motorturns freely andlooks ready to run, with a new carburetor! Autostick transmission is all there, I believe, but will need service. Some lines are not connected as needed. Most people just swap these out with a standard transmission. The steeringworks very smoothly with very little play in it. Emergency brake works really well, but the normal brakes need some work,the brake fluid reservoiris dry. The suspension feels fine at all four corners. I put a test battery in and turned the key to find all lights on the dash working as they should. Even the windshield wipers work! So I believe the electrical system looks operational. NO mouse damage! PLEASE remember this is a weekend project. Seats are still fully supported on the floor, so you can sit in it. Heater boxes look complete. This Bug has ALL ORIGINAL body panels and fenders. All body and chassis numbers are present and matching as they should be, meaning it is correct andALL ORIGINAL which is RARE for a classic VW of this age.This is not a "stupid beetle"!The top is in usable condition, but the front bow is water logged, so it has a gap in front. The last bug I had, had the same situation and I just removed the top from the front bow and installed a composite bow. Then I re-used the same top, so it is very do-able in one weekend. The headliner looks nice, just needs some cleaning or a black dye job. All glass is nice with the chrome frames complete and no pitting! All window regulators work great. Seats look nice but do have splits as you can see in the pictures. I would just slip on some covers, then the seats will be amazing, and very supportive. All door panels are present and look great, even the original ash-trays are in tack as they should be. ZERO MILES ON THE TIRES. This will be a Great Bug with a few weekends of time and some spot welding of new pans. That will really increase the value! I just have too many projects right now and a baby on the way! So this is a great opportunity for you! Clean title in hand! I will be happy to help you work with a car-hauler company, to bring this to your location. This Bug can be moved just about anywhere in the USA for less than $1000.00 because I am located in the middle of the US!Please feel free to ask any questions. I would be happy to entertain a reasonable offer.Thank you.
