VOLKSWAGEN 1972 TAX FREE 1600 TWIN PORT CUSTOM BEETLE

Thanks for looking at my listing.

I really don't know where to start with this. Basically I now have absolutely nowhere to keep her so unfortunately I've come to the conclusion she needs to go. Originally bought for my 21'st birthday. 'Oscar' was acquired due to a new chassis fitted in early 2000's and being an all round solid beetle. She was a daily runner and used her to go surfing. I was lucky enough to get her fully overhauled by a professional company in Holland back in 2011 with no expense spared! Since the body overhaul and new engine she's done about 2000 miles so is in great condition.

She has unfortunately. for various reasons. been in storage for about 2 years now and its time to say goodbye. Her MOT ran out in December and currently I don't have time to get to the garage. once I have an interested buyer I will discuss what I can do.

So. the list of work carried out is seemingly endless. but i'll have a go.

 - 1600 twin port Refurbished engine. New everything with 70 amp alternator and electronic ignition. Has only covered a few hundred miles.

 - New '66 Doors. bonnet. wings. lights and hood

 - Single window conversion. All tinted

 - Brand new Custom made 4-inch chopped beam with adjusters and dropped spindles

 - Brand new torsion beams and ball joints

 - New running boards

 - New Sports Exhaust - custom ( sounds amazing)

 -  New lowered shocks

 - EMPI Short Shifter

 - Chrome Windscreen wipers and bullet mirrors

 - Custom Heated front seats ( such a god send!)

 - Custom interior with new door cards

 - New Grand Style steering wheel

 - Rear Ford style lights

 - Roof Rack -custom chrome

 - New 15 chrome EMPI 8 wheels


ICE:

 - iPAD (optional)

 - Traktor S4 Midi DJ controller (optional)

 - 3M MP160 Pocket projector (optional)

 - Macrom head unit with satnav and Satellite TV

 - Macrom Mid range speakers x6 

 - Macrom Tweeters 2 X Pair

 - Macrom Amps (2 x mono Block & a 4 Channel)

 - Macrom Power Cap 

- Polk audio Power woofer x2

- New speaker front panel & kick panel

- Finger print safe. (For keys etc…It's really useful)


Issues.

The paint on the rear quarter has started to bubble and if I was going to keep it I would get it stripped back and respray it.

The only other thing that isn't working is the sound system. Its probably just a fuse or something because it was working fine and after being stored it won't power up.

I know this description is brief. so give me a call/email to discuss anything.

from Kersten Falk, dated 08 august 2021
Hello Ed, hope you are well. My name is Kersten, my Youtube channel is Brainshatterer and I am working on a follow up on the pimp my ride cars. I got my wife on the US version with her VW THing and we still have her car. I would love to speak with you and if you are willing to share some insight and photos or videos with me, myabe I can help you find a new home for Oscar. I'd love to buy it, but have no clue what would be involved in purchase and then transport to Tennessee over here in the US.
Please feel free to reach out to me, I'd love to hear from you. It's cool that your episode is one of the only ones available on youtube.
