*Update: 02. 03. 14 

New Photos uploaded show car without stickers.  I took these off when I first got the car as they looked really tacky. Now gives the car a better simpler minimalist look back to its original style. Pictures of interior. The door panels. roof and other areas are all black.

Good Bits

Genuine Gene Berg Shifter (Ultimate Retro gear stick giving it a real muscle car feel).

Air Cooled Engine. Amazing design so whether its -20 or +40 Degrees outside. the Car will fire up just fine.

Rear Window Blinds.

Original Sun visor.

New distributer.

New leads.

New Plugs.

New Speedo and cable (reads around 45000 but actual mileage is around 65000).

Heaps of Spares. bolts. lights. knobs. etc.

Over £7000 spent!

The previous owner used it as an everyday car with no issues. Used for short journeys and trips to Birmingham & Norwich.

The previous owner also hand painted it Matt black giving it a classic rat look and certainly makes it stand out from the rest.

I used it only for a few months around London and couldn't have clocked anymore than 20 miles on it.

Its been kept in a dry underground Car Space with cover and well looked after.

No rot at all. this car is completely solid. one of the best I've seen in years.

The 1500 engine twinned with the classic tailpipes pulls really well and sounds amazing. loud enough to turn heads but not having that boy racer look.

Bad Bits

Driver's seat cover has a rip. Easily replaced.

Headlight button needs replacing (very cheap on internet).  

Roof Rack not included. Previous Owner kept it.


She starts first time every time and is a fantastic example of this retro VW.

I am in Shoreditch. London so please message me once you have won to arrange collection.

Will try to answer some questions. but I'm not a VW expert so my knowledge is limited.

*MOT'd last weekend! 

*Tax'd for 12 months! 

This could be your Summer Car for 2014 and beyond!

Who hasn't wanted to own a Beetle in their lifetime?! 

Now's your chance!

Please make arrangements with insurance company (Footman James Classic Car is good) or trailer (I know someone that can pick up and drop off so will need a few days notice).

*Update today 04. 03. 14:
Please see video I took recently of Beetle on youtube: http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=7a41pVE2zm0

Enjoy & thanks for the Bids so far!

I have lowered the reserve price slightly also but know it will reach for a good value!

*Update today 06. 03. 14

Re-listing item as reserve price not met.

Hoping for a good quick Sale. Had many emails and alot of interest on Auction that ended last night. (13 Bids. 80 Watchers & over '4000' views) Reduced buy-it-now price by £1000 and a more affordable realistic Reserve 'price'! Only Bid if you are a serious eBay buyer & have read all the above. Also only send email if you have a Genuine interest to Purchase the car & you must leave a Mobile number to show you are a serious eBay Buyer. Please consider the Buy-it-now Price is close to reserve 'price' as I am prepared to wait till I get the Price I am asking for and of course want Eleanor to go to a good Home.

*Update today 11. 03. 14

Ok. Eleanor needs a good Home. so this is another Auction for Her. Last Auction was close to my reserve price but not quite (5 Bids getting to £3. 76. 57 Watchers & 2826 views). Had some Genuine interest recently & some Time Wasters. but no one's followed through. I suggest you look on eBay and other sites. This is a very reasonably priced car. There is no hidden rot. issues or problems like many out there and this isn't a Resto that'll cost ££££ to restore but a Road Worthy & good conditioned 44 year old Beetle. If you know anything about Classics. tax is nil in this case. insurance is cheap. parts are a bargain and you can get them 2nd hand & they look so F!*%in' Awesome even if your having a bad day She'll cheer you up. Buy-Her-Now before She goes! Good Luck & Happy Bidding!!!
