This is my beloved classic 1974 VW Beetle 1302S modified convertible. Bill.

 

He's in good shape for an old chap and brings a smile to all who see him.

 

I'm selling (very sadly) as I'm leaving the country in a couple of months.

 

Bill's details:

 

·      First registered September 1974.

·      MOT valid to June 2014.

·      Bodywork solid.  

·      Reconditioned 1300cc engine. installed April 2012 and still under warranty.

·      Starts first time. every time. thanks to a good quality 2 year old 12V battery.

·      Easily achieves 70mph when needed but prefers a more sedate cruising pace of 55mph for longer journeys.

·      Have driven him all the way from Brighton to Bristol and Manchester. no problems.

·      Candy Apple red in colour. paintwork in good condition as always kept in a garage. some bubbling on the bonnet. but not expensive to respray. His true colour shows in the photos I took in the street in the shade.

·      White vinyl roof and upholstery with red piping in great condition. no tears.

·      Red carpeted interior with black mats front and back. Heating works fine.

·      Cal look white alloys.

·      Sony 4 speaker CD player AM/FM radio.

·      Fob immobiliser.

·      Carries 5 people. a dog and 3 crates of beers. no problem.  The perfect sunny day/beach/picnic car. Though he is very watertight too.

·      Current insurance £85 per year.

 

Any questions. please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Available to view in central Brighton.


Bank guaranteed cheque/cash on collection.
