  • For Sale - 1964 Patina'd Bug "The POS"

    Unfortunately, itís time to sell this one. Want to purchase something different (non VW) and donít have the storage space. If I had the space, Iíd keep it as itís going to kill me to let it go.

    Most of you will know the car. Itís a 1964 Bug which came from the U.S. back in 2010. I purchased it in 2011 and have done various jobs to it since (see link below showing work done).

    Itís got a 1600 twin port engine, full new interior including headliner carpet, door panels, seat covers etc. The chrome BBS Sprint Star wheels are in great condition, as are the tyres. Itís got an adjustable front beam, a front safari windscreen (the screen is cracked from top to bottom in the centre but being flat glass, is easy to replace. I never did as being a Rat look car, it never bothered me).

    The car is as solid a beetle as I have ever seen.
    • Patina on OG paint from 1964
    • No rot at all
    • OG metal -except the engine lid which was red before it was bare metalled
    • Rare 'small window' pop out rear windows
    • Brand new front safari window
    • New window rubbers all round
    • New door rubbers
    • New trim clips & rubber bungs
    • Lots of cool accessories incl. flying VW bonnet badge from Oz, dice dust caps, 356 style grills, EMPI dip rear view mirror, single mount antenna, swan neck mirrors etc etc
    • New wiring incl. modern fuse box
    • Rear reverse lamps
    • Vintage front spot lamps
    • EMPI shifter
    • New Sony Stereo
    • All shut lines are perfect and as new
    Not included in the sale is the steering wheel (there will be a white Ď60ís steering wheel included).

    Iím a little unsure where to pitch the price. Iím asking Ä10k which I think is reasonable considering the condition of the car and the rarity of it. Itís a real head-turner which gets a lot of attention any time I have it out.

    My progress page since purchase.

                    Fortunately about 20 mins from my house.
                    Iíll still always regret selling it but it had to go.
                    Love that car........
