This very neatly restored “oval” beetle attracts attention with its deep black paintwork and the many shiny chrome parts.
The unwarranted mileage amounts to 4,741 mls. The US imported beetle strikes the onlooker as equally nostalgic and elegant. The interior keeps to red, while the dashboard is body-coloured as usual. The leatherette seats are in a near-new condition. You will find sun visors, a glove box and an ash tray inside the VW – these were the extras that gave added value to a car, long before there were large-scale navigation displays… Of course, the rear sunblind wasn’t standard either, no more so than the Motorola radio.
Not for nothing, the charming VW beetle model was built from 1945 until 2003. Here you have the opportunity to get hold of a very attractive one, which will put a smile on the face of many people.
A Classic Data appraisal recently estimated the value of this beetle in condition 2+ at € 20,000.
As part of its service earlier this year, the beetle has received a number of new parts, among them master brake cylinder, wheel brake cylinders and brake pads. The battery was replaced and the carburettor overhauled. The “oval” has also been treated to a new set of tyres.
It comes with historic plates and valid technical approval until 06/2018, which means it is ready for the next enjoyable outing, whenever you are.
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. As of August 1957, this was replaced by a much wider rear window. Quite a few owners of older models had these “modern” windows installed subsequently, making the original singular-oval window variants more desirable and valuable today.
