1969 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

1969 VW Beetle (Bug) in Diamond Blue (1540 cc Engine)

This Bug has been through a complete body off rebuild, oo many new parts to list but I have all the receipts, ere are the major items:

The engine and transmission were rebuilt less than 3,000 miles ago by the previous owner and the engine runs really strong

List of things that were done to the engine:

Reground crank, ebuilt connecting rods, eplaced main bearings, eplaced rod bearings and cam bearings, amshaft w/gear, cat shifters, B filter pump, istons & cylinder set (905 forged), arrel shims, ush rod rubes, asket set & seal (German), actory rebuilt heads (VW), sed pulley (Degree), xternal clamp kits, an belt, lugs, lug wires, sed German F&S clutch plate, oints & comp. 009, uel line, nd filter. Aligned bore & thrust cut. Opened heads to 90.5 bore.

Anew oil cooler was installed as well.

Empi Short Shifter installed (that really improves shifting performance.)

Brand New Tires (including the spare) and Brakes

A new Gas Tank (and all of the filler neck hoses and vent hoses were replaced), heavy duty rear sway bar with urethane bushings was installed as well as urethane bushings on the front anti-sway bar.

A new battery was installed at Costco.

When the entire front end was rebuilt, rack rod arms, teering damper, all joints & steering box, he steering couple were also replaced. The new steering box makes a big difference in how the car drives.

Cosmetically, he running boards have recently been replaced, s well as the sun visors and interior and exterior mirrors. The car has the Original VW steering wheel and the dash is not cut up or mangled. Glove box is new. The body was completely removed from the frame, nd the floor pans were replaced, long with the luggage shelf, ll from Wolfburgs West, nd all were coated with POR-15. The body was sanded down and dents were hammered out to reduce the need for filler. The body was coated 4 times with primer and sanded down in-between coats, nd then received 3 coats of Diamond Blue base coat and 2 coats of clear. All fenders, oods, nd miscellaneous pieces were painted off the car, or a complete job. The underside of the fenders received Wurth undercoating to reduce the chance of rocks hitting the underside of the fenders and producing a “star” chip that shows up on the top side of the fender. The interior received all new padding, ew upholstery, ew carpets and new headliner. The floors, oors, oof and rear shelving also received sound and heat insulation, o reduce noise and heat in the interior. Most of the switches are original, s is the speedometer, ut with new center caps on the switches. New Wiring harness was installed and a new “Retro Sounds” radio. The car received new stainless steel fasteners when putting it back together, o reduce rusting of the bolts. It also has all new rubber and felt throughout. The car retains its original CA black plates. It comes with the original jack and tool kit as well as the original owner’s manual. This Car was originally sold in January of 1969 in San Jose, A, nd has seemed to have spent its entire life in California.

The car has had a final tune up, arburetor, lutch and brake adjustment from Fred’s Garage in Redwood City, A.

This car does not come with a warranty, iven or implied. Please do your due diligence, nd view or have someone view the car for you. Once purchased any issue found later will be the buyers responsibility. I have tried to convey the condition of the car honestly, nd have not left out anythingintentionally. This is a great car, nd drives just like the one I owned in 1969 when I was 16. Oh the memories.
