1970 Volkswagen Beetle - ClassicI'm selling my 1970 Volkswagen Beetle convertible. This is NOT a Superbeetle, his is the more desirable "flat windshield" version.
The car is in very good cosmetic and mechanical condition. The paint has a few small blemishes, uch as some clear coat cracks on the hood and a few small stone chips here and there. The top does have a few small tears, ut is still usable. I do have a cover that goes on the top while it is down, hich is almost brand new. Headliner is in great shape. Windows and windshield are all solid and do not have any chips or cracks. Heat works very well for an old air-cooled VW. Upholstery was also redone about a year ago. Installed a backdated steering wheel, complete with Wolfsburg center button. Also installed a "retro-look" radio that looks like the original radio, ut is AM/FM and has an auxiliary cable for iPod, tc. Upgraded seat-belts to retractable units, hich are much more comfortable and easier to use than the stock units. Refinished the wooden shift knob, unning boards, nd dash panels to freshen them up. Added an MG tachometer that looks nice in the car, ut seems to have some issues from time to time. It needs to be taken out and looked at. I also added new chrome fender stone guards and new chrome front and rear bumpers - the front bumper has a small dent which is not really noticeable, s it is behind the license plate. All floor pans are very solid, t is very structurally sound and nearly rust free. One other small item to point out - there is no passenger side mirror included with the sale.
Engine has been upgraded to a 1600 Dual Port, hich has much better performance than the stock 1600 single port. The engine was recently rebuilt - less than 1,000 miles on the engine since the rebuild (please note: the engine IS installed and running in the car. I simply included the picture of the engine next to the car to show that it was indeed removed and rebuilt). There is NO slop at the crank pulley, hich is a common problem with these motors that signifies serious internal engine component wear. I also added recently rebuilt dual Weber ICT carburetors for improved throttle response and a Tri Mil muffler/header system, hich greatly improves the exhaust sound and engine performance. 4 speed manual transmission shifts well through all the gears - all shift bushings recently replaced. If you are looking at a car where these have not been replaced, t is very likely that it will be very hard to shift and will grind through the gears.The car hasbeen upgraded tofront disk brakes and still hasdrums on the rear. It starts, tops, uns and drives very well. Clean Missouri title in my name. The odometer shows just over 61,000 miles, hich are believed to be original miles.
Overall, his is a very nice example of a 1970 VW, ut since it is a 45 year old car, t does have some minor blemishes. I would rate it at a 7 out of 10. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions, ould like any more information or need to see any more pictures. If you are local, 'd be glad to set up a time with you to take a look at the car in person.
