1972 Volkswagen Beetle 1300

Recent full respray; most brightwork replaced, new carpets and door cards; new tyres and wheels recently fitted; brakes overhauled; ready for action


The earlier of the two Beetles in the auction is presented here and you can see there is a marked difference, especially regarding the interior features and not to mention subtle differences in the bodywork.  
The vendor, an accomplished mechanic and no stranger to restoring cars, has had this Volkswagen since 2005. During 2018 and 2019, approximately £4,000 has been spent on the car. He has done the work himself so there are few invoices on file but it has included a bare metal respray and renewal of all bright work and new hub caps.  
New door cards, carpets, handles and headlamps have been fitted. A full brake overhaul has taken place, renewal of carburettor, new fuel pump, master cylinder unit and original heat exchangers have all been worked on. New distributor cap, leads and plugs too which means it certainly runs and drives and arrived at Brightwells under its own steam.  
Like many cars of this age, the interior is a little used and although it is perfectly presentable, it would need a few jobs doing if you were going to go for awards at shows etc…
