Full Description

1974 Volkswagen Beetle Karmann Convertible

No Reserve

Genuine Karmann; great project that runs and drives; new hood cover; well worth time and effort

This 1974 Convertible arrived on British shores in 1987 according to the V5C, since when it has had three registered keepers. There are signs of regular servicing post 1999 until around 2015, with hand-written notes on file and invoices, its previous lady owner keeping the car for 20 years.

It had a new hood in 2011 which is servicable but could really do with replacement and as can be seen, the car needs cosmetic attention with areas of rust showing as seen in the photos. It comes with a brand new hood cover with fittings that has never been used.

The car starts straight away and we have been running and driving it onsite for the photos. The vendor didn't, but said he would have been quite happy to drive it the 100+ miles to the sale, although it hasn't used for a few years now so it could do with some recommissioning work prior to regular use.

There are eighteen old MOTs, its most recent expring in 2015.

With values of these charismatic and fun Beetles on the rise of late, this project car looks enticing, especially as it is on offer at No Reserve so the best bid on the day buys the car.
