1973 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible

No Reserve

Older convertible conversion; running and driving, from a deceased estate and not used for some time; easy project to recommission

'Happy' has enjoyed an active life...starting out as a standard 1303 saloon that left the factory in November 1972. At this point it was painted Pastel white with black leatherette upholstery according to the factory certificate on file.

Some considerable time later, it had an after-market roof-chop as you can see, which appears to have been well executed, although we don't know when this took place.

It comes to us from a deceased estate, the car having entered the family's ownership in 1999. It has been much loved, but little used of late, the most recent MOT expiring back in 2017. Since then, it has been in dry storage.

Now back up and running, we have been driving it around onsite and it has started readily and the brakes have pulled it up well. It would however benefit from a good service and light recommissioning having done so little over the last five years.

As you can see, the hood could do with a new cover and there is some tidying to be done here and there, but it is essentially a solid Beetle looking for a new home. On offer at No Reserve, the best bid buys the car...
