Up for sale is my wifes 1973 1200 Beetle.
It was fully restored 2 years ago with a full body off job done and has been painted a couple of weeks ago. Therefore the car is totally rust and rot free! Its imaculate. I also belive the wings bonnet and boot lid are the early ones which look so much nicer in my opinion. The headlights are also brand new H4 upgrades so no more driving by candle light!
The front beam is lowered with some weld in adjusters paired with some bug shock short travel shocks for a slightly improved ride. The rear beam has also been lowered a notch or 2.
The brakes are drums all round and all in full good working order. The shoes are all nearly new too.
The engine runns well and is actually quite nippy for a 1200, will cruise at 75 on the motorway. The 1200's are well known for being bullet proof so you should have no issues there. It has no leaks and uses no oil with no end float. It has been fully serviced with new Coil, plugs, points, rotor arm, cap, leads, filter, carb rebuild, pretty much everything! The gearbox has recently had a full oil change and benefits from a short shifter.
The interiour is very basic and would benefit from a new carpet set but all in all very nice. I have added some electric porsche 911 cream leather chairs which are worth a pretty penny and very comfortable. I have also installed some 3 point seatbelts in the rear as i have children and needed a way to fit baby seats.
The car is currently taxed but i will have to check how long it has left. Currently there is no MOT on the car but i do plan to take it in the next week or 2 so may have a full years ticket soon.
All in all the car is stunning and you really gotta come have a look for yourself.
