Restored VW Beetle, garage kept in great condition.
My parents bought this bug in 2008 from an elderly gentleman whose hobby was restoring old beetles. My parents have put approximately 6000 miles on it in the last 9 years. No mechanical problems, treated like a baby, out for Sunday drives reliving their younger years when they owned VW's.
Engine has been rebuilt, converted from 6 volt to 12 volt system. 1600 cc engine. Dual braking system. Aluminum running boards, gravel guards, windshield sun guard,New carpet, headliner and seats were redone. Elderly gentleman who restored car repacked too many items to list them all here.Also added was a fan to the back glass for defrosting.
