This car is originally out of south Tennessee I've used it only during the (east coast) cruising season, basically spring to fall, it is garage kept, hasn't seen snow, it has not been restore, it is a super solid bodie, unrestored 62' rare original ragtop car . I say original ragtop car as in it has a sliding ragto, it has not been cut u, or the roof been grafted on from another car, ( 62' original ragtops are very rare due to the Herbie Craze) .The body and floors are solid, no ro, a puck here and there, but no dent, paint is good, it has no hea, newer tire, it has pop out quarter window, and a safari windshiel, ( I retro fitted myself ) it runs and shifts smooth, and stops like whoa "not like any other beetle" the only thing it needs is a headline, everything else is don, I enjoy cruising it all season long and then some .
