Default 1978 1303 Karmann Convertible RHD - SOLD

Advertising on behalf of a friend.

1978 Karmann convertible Beetle. Same owner since 2002. US import that was converted to RHD when it underwent an extensive restoration with many panels replaced and a full respray. The interior was also retrimmed and a hew hood was fitted. The 1600 engine was fully rebuilt. The Beetle was used for shows and the occasional wedding, but always garaged. It has been stored in the garage for the past few years and not used and so the decision has been made to sell. Please note that the Beetle is located in Cookstown N.Ireland about 1hour from Belfast.
Please ring for further details.

Should have said I've the number of a transport company not far from where the Karmann is, who could bring it over to England. They bring stuff over here from England on a weekly basis.

From memory it had a full body off rebuild, new pans, channels and wings. He used a donor 03 to convert to rhd. Interior was retrimmed in leatherette (may be leather). All new brake discs, drums, lines etc. Anything that looked worn was replaced.

The fuel injection system was also swapped out for a carb and the engine was rebuilt by the same VW Specialist who did mine in 1999
