IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CAR WHICH HAS BEEN RESTORED AND NEEDS NO WORK DOING THEN READ ON.

FOR SALE. MY BEETLE. URIAH. SO NAMED AS HIS REGISTRATION NUMBER IS 'EAP' (70'S ROCK FANS WILL REMEMBER THIS BAND!). LOL.

URIAH WAS BORN ON 16 MAY 1972 AND WILL BE CELEBRATING HIS 41ST BIRTHDAY THIS YEAR. HE HAS JUST BEEN RESTORED AND RESPRAYED INSIDE AND OUT TO A HIGH STANDARD.

ALTHOUGH NOT A 'BODY OFF' RESTORATION. HE HAS BEEN FULLY PREPARED. AND HAS HAD A NEW BONNET AND 2 NEW FRONT WINGS.   HE HAS JUST RETURNED FROM THE PAINT SHOP. WHERE HE HAS HAD A PROFESSIONAL RESPRAY IN 2 PACK PAINT IN PASTEL WHITE. AND HE SHINES LIKE A NEW PIN!

HE IS TAXED UNTIL JULY 2013. BUT THIS IS FREE.   HE HAS HIS MOT CERTIFICATE TO 24 FEBRUARY 2014 AND HAS NOT BEEN DRIVEN MUCH SINCE THIS DATE.

URIAH'S ENGINE HAS HAD NEW FLY WHEEL SEAL. OIL COOLER SEALS. ETC. FITTED LAST WEEK. AND THERE ARE NO OIL LEAKS.   THE ENGINE IS GOOD. RUNS WELL AND STARTS FIRST TIME.   HIS GEAR BOX IS SOUND.

HE HAS HAD NEW RUNNING BOARDS. NEW BLADE BUMPERS (FRONT AND BACK. N. B. FRONT ONE HAS A VERY SLIGHT CREASE ABOUT 1" LONG BUT THIS DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE OVERALL APPEARANCE OF THE CAR).   ALSO BLACK BEADING ALL ROUND. NEW  CHROME INDICATOR TOPS. NEW REAR LIGHT LENSES AND RUBBERS. NEW BONNET RUBBERS AND I WILL FIT THE ENGINE LID SEAL THIS WEEK. ALL OTHER CHROME WORK WAS NOT REPLACED AS STILL LIKE NEW. AL WINDOW RUBBERS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. URIAH HAS BLACK AND SILVER NUMBER PLATES BEFITTING HIS AGE.

1 KEY FOR BOTH DOORS (WHICH IS UNUSUAL FOR A CLASSIC CAR).

HIS INTERIOR HAS ALSO BEEN FULLY RESPRAYED.

HIS CARPETS ARE IN EXC CONDITION. AND HE HAS HAD NEW CARPET IN THE BONNET AND A PARCEL SHELF FITTED.   ROOFLINING IS GOOD AND CLEAN.

URIAH'S SEATS ARE IN EXC CONDITION. WITH NO RIPS OR TEARS OR HOLES. AND I HAVE HAD THE FRONT SEAT BASES REPADDED AND RESKINNED. ABSOLUTLEY NO SAGGING.

HIS FLOOR PANELS AND BATTERY COMPARTMENT ARE SOUND (SEE PICS). SOME WORK HAS BEEN DONE TO THE HEATER CHANNELS AND THESE. TOO. ARE SOUND.

HE HAS A NEW JVC RADIO CASSETTE IN THE DASH WHICH NEEDS WIRING UP.

THE V5 IS PRESENT AND IN MY NAME. NOTHING DODGY ABOUT THIS CAR. ON CHANGING OWNER YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THE COLOUR FROM 'BLUE' TO 'WHITE'.

 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:

A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT BY PAYPAL OF £200. 00 IS PAYABLE AT AUCTION END. THE BALANCE TO BE PAID IN CASH ON COLLECTION.   IF PAYING THE BALANCE BY CHEQUE YOUR CHEQUE WILL HAVE TO CLEAR BEFORE YOU COLLECT.

THE WINNING BIDDER IS TO MAKE TELEPHONE CONTACT IMMEDIATELY AT AUCTION END FOR DETAILS OF EMAIL ADDRESS TO PAY THE DEPOSIT. AND TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO COLLECT. WE ARE IN NORTH STAFFORDSHIRE. 1 MILE OFF JUNCTION 15. M6.

OF COURSE. THIS CAR IS A CLASSIC. NOT A NEW MODERN CAR.   HE HAS BEEN RESTORED TO A HIGH STANDARD AND THE DESCRIPTION IS MY PERSONAL OPINION. THEREFORE YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO VIEW BEFORE BIDDING.

TO VIEW OR ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE RING KEVIN ON 07811 103413 OR 01782 851091 EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS.   I WILL ALSO ANSWER QUESTIONS BY EMAIL. BUT PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO RING IF YOU HAVE ANY QUERIES.

IF YOU BID YOU BUY - NON PAYERS WILL BE REPORTED TO EBAY. YOU ARE BIDDING TO BUY THE CAR. NOT KICK TYRES AND HAGGLE THE PRICE.

A REALISTIC RESERVE IS SET. AND I AM OPEN TO SENSIBLE OFFERS. THESE CARS ARE BECOMING RARER AS TIME GOES BY BUT GIVE SO MUCH PLEASURE.

NOTHING MUCH ELSE TO SAY. EXCEPT

THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAPPY BIDDING!!!

IT HAS JUST BEEN POINTED OUT BY AN EAGLE EYED EBAYER (MANY THANKS TO THEM) THAT THE FRON NUMBER PLATE IS INCORRECT.   I WILL PUT THE OLD NUMBER PLATE BACK ON AND GET A NEW ONE MADE FOR THE NEW OWNER AND POSTED ON.  MY APOLOGIES FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE.

Hello there,

I've just discovered this site and I'm not quite sure how it works, I can't see a date anywhere, Is this still for sale by any chance?

Thank you.
