1965 Volkswagen Beetle 1200 / 1192cc 1.2 Litre 40hp Since the early to mid 50's Volkswagen has been importing these lil VWs into the USA with very few changes into the 70s. The philosophy was; why mess with perfection? Known as "The Peoples Car", these VWs made up 70% of all imports into the USA. In the 60s, it seemed like every third car on the road was a VW Beetle. Today, there is almost a cult following for these cars. This VW Beetle looks fantastic after a really nice frame-on restoration. Refinished in its original paint and interior color, this Bug looks fantastic. In addition to the restoration, updates and maintenance with recent receipts are in excess of $4000. Everything has been thoroughly gone through. The 65000 mile engine runs like new! New white wall tires and all new brakes were part of the updates. The interior is in excellent condition. Seats were refinished and everything works as it should. A new Retro Classic radio replaces the original radio and sounds great. (We do not have the original radio) The factory wood roof rack adds a nice touch! The undercarriage is super clean and there is NO rust at all. The original owners manual is still with this VW. This is a great little classic Beetle that can be driven anywhere. Feel free to ask questions or come on in for a test drive!
