1972 super beetle in very good condition. Bright orange with a black interior. Very little rust - some on the bumpers and a little on the front hood cover. Interior is fine but there is minor tearing on the front seats. Pretty much everything works with the exception of the odometer. It reads about 43,000 but hasn't moved in years.
We have owned the car for 4 years and have only driven it during times when the weather was fine. Have not driven in snow or rain. Have maintained the car with tune ups, oil changes, some repair to the engine for an oil leak, new tires, new battery and frequent cleaning. Bought the car for $5,000 and spent about $1,500 for various maintenance. We are asking $4,995.
But might it return, and next time plugged into electric power?
