The Volkswagen Beetle was produced from 1938 until 2003. With
over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled. rear-engine and
rearwheel drive configuration. it is the longest-running and most
manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world.
During the 1950's. it was modified progressively; the most obvious
visual changes being the rear windows. Towards the end of 1964. the
height of the side windows and windscreen grew slightly giving the
cabin a less pinched look which coincided with the introduction of
a very slightly curved 'panoramic' windscreen. The same body
appeared throughout 1966 with a 1300cc engine in place of the
1200cc engine; it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that it
displayed an obviously curved windscreen. It has been regarded as
something of a 'cult' car since its 1960's association with the
hippie movement and surf culture.

This 62 year old Beetle has been totally restored over the last
couple of years with virtually no expense spared. The 1300cc twin
port engine has undergone a complete rebuild. the brakes have been
overhauled and a disc brake conversion fitted. The bodywork has
been repaired/restored and painted in a deep maroon. to a high
standard. the interior has been re-trimmed. A shortened 'slamwerks'
front axle has been fitted and ride height lowered by 2 inches. she
sits on a brand new set of wheels and tyres. A retrosound stereo
and MP3 player with a period facia has been installed combining the
best of the old with the up to date options. Supplied with a V5C
registration document and a history file. this Volkswagen is one of
the finest examples we have seen and taking into account the rarity
factor of an 'oval rear window' Beetle and the investment required
to restore a car to this condition. this Volkswagen could well
prove to be a bargain.
