Vehicle Description

The most popular German car of all times – that’s what the VW beetle was when it was new, and that’s what it continues to be as a classic.

And it’s cars like this fully restored grey 1302 that make sure things won’t change in future times either. It is a very special beetle indeed, built in 1971, just one year after the 1302 had been introduced, with only three owners from new. The current keeper purchased this vehicle in 1994.

After years of pleasurable driving, he submitted the VW to a thorough restoration in 2011. It was re-painted in the VW colour Y2Y2 and was given a full leather interior, including door panels and steering wheel, which all keep to an elegant tobacco brown, nicely contrasting the grey paintwork that is also found in the interior, as is typical for the beetle. The headliner is set in a darker shade of grey and the deep velour carpeting in black. A retro-styled digital audio system has been installed.

Since the restoration, the beetle has always been kept in a garage and was only driven in fair weather. The flat-four engine in the rear produces 31 kW (42 hp) of power from 1.3 litres of capacity, and makes the typical VW sound that generations of people will recognize with their eyes closed.

The 1302 comes with valid technical approval until 09/2018, German registration documents and has already been registered as a historic vehicle.

An absolutely stunning VW beetle in top shape.


 

Who has not heard of the Beetle that runs and runs and runs?

As early as 1945, mass production of the VW Beetle was commenced – the last one rolled off the line in 2003. The VW Beetle was produced over 20,000,000 times and had become a classic during its production period, enjoying a wide fan base right until today. In early 2014, more than 10 percent of all registered classic cars in Germany were “creepy crawlies”, making it beyond any doubt the most popular classic car of all times.

Over the decades, the beetle has undergone numerous changes, the most obvious concerned the shape of the rear window. The two-piece oval rear window (“split”) was replaced in 1953 by a larger one-piece oval window. In 1957 and then again in 1963, the rear window was enlarged again. The 1302 was presented in 1970, it marked the zenith of beetle development in Germany. Production at the Wolfsburg plant came to an end in 1974, but up until 1985, Mexico-built beetles were officially marketed by VW in Germany.
