I have owned this car since 1986. It was fully restored by Earl Mann's Bug Shop in Ardmore Oklahoma in around 2005 and has been stored (covered) in my garage since 2009. If you haven't heard of Earl Mann's Bug Shop, Google them. They are nationally known for fixing and restoring Volkswagens. Earl Mann's has checked/replaced (oil, fuel lines, etc) recently since the car was stored for so many years. This car looks and runs great!! The headliner is white and all other interior (seats, carpet, etc) is black. There are a couple paint chips due to road usage and one small area of the paint is bubbled (pic included). I also have, and will include, the original wheels/rims from the car. The odometer reads 1486 (it was reset to zero when restored).
