For Sale: 1963 Volkswagen Beetle in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Is there any classic that's more recognizable than Volkswagen's venerable Type 1 Beetle? Afterall, this is a car that single-handedly built a 65 year legacy out of honest, no frills transportation. And today, the Bug, as it's affectionately known, continues to be one of the most endearing rides on the planet! When it comes to collector cars, it's hard to find a better combination of retro style and lovable charm than a vintage VeeDub. And from an enthusiast's standpoint, old school Volks are just laid back, easy to live with fun machines that enjoy a cult-like following and a positively gigantic support system. A highly authentic, mostly original survivor that's been professionally sorted, this 1963 Beetle is the ideal classic for a budget-minded collector or anyone who wants an awesome weekend warrior that's sure to build equity. Looking for one of the coolest and most unique rides your money can buy? Welcome to the 'people's car'!

Spending close to 30 years in the care of its original owner, this exceptional Type 1 was stashed in storage after just 3,200 miles of easy road time. When a second owner came calling, the car needed, among a few other things, a slight clutch adjustment. Because that unkempt clutch created a drivability issue, owner number two decided to confine the Bug to even more storage. And, by the time owner number three arrived, this classic had ripened into a low-mileage time capsule. Owner number three, a professional technician and avid European car enthusiast, performed a thorough tune-up. And today, this exclusive Volkswagen, having just surpassed 300 trouble-free miles of road time, is fully sorted and ready to roll!
