VW Beetle Ragtop 1600cc - £4500 ono

Josephine is a 1970 registered bug who was actually built in the late 60’s and sat in a showroom for a couple of years being admired before sold and registered. She has internal filler cap, factory fitted ragtop and some deluxe trims added in the early days which make her quite unique. She has a 1600 single port bus engine which pulls like a train even when she’s full of passengers, a Monza exhaust which sounds great and has grunt. As far as I’m aware all light fittings are original to the car, as are the seating, headlining and steering wheel. The canvas ragtop is newly made and fitted. The roof slide back mechanism works perfectly and does not leak even in the freaky rain we seem to get these days. She has new carpeting. Alloys and tyres have little wear. I purchased her early summer 2017 with view to restore and enjoy. She looked great added to our small collection of air-cooled vehicles and was different. Sadly in February this year, I had a terrible accident where I seriously fractured and dislocated my left elbow and wrist. This has left me unable to drive the car. Gear change is painful and impossible to use the handbrake so can’t enjoy her without a companion to operate said bits!
BAD BITS - She has had all welding work completed last summer totalling almost £700 and has been primed, so she needs paint ideally to finish her off, though I personally love her matt grey finish.This was my initial plan but guessed seeing as she’s having to go, made sense her new owner had their choice of paint and made her their own. Serious offers only. We are based in Kings Lynn but can arrange delivery at cost.
This bug is freshly serviced and has lots of receipts. She starts first turn of the key and is ready to enjoy without niggles needing fixing (had everything done). Please call me for further details or more photos. Michelle 07712268869.
