I have to move my '65 beetle on now, as I don't have time for it anymore. I bought it on here 4 years ago from Welshwench

Engine
New built by JL, only been run on the rolling road. 1776 twin DCNFs, all new tinware and exhaust( with heat exchangers so you wont' be cold in the winter) Alternator conversion. 009 with electronic conversion. New coil. .etc.. The engine alone cost me £2800 All reciepts available

Lowered 1 spline at the rear, adjustable beam at the front.

Front disc conversion (new).

Running on original polished and detailed fuchs alloys, with porsche centre caps.

Original Popouts.

Genuine original Kamei parcel shelves front and rear.

Good oatmeal colour carpets. Wood rim steering wheel. Scat shifter

Recaro seats trimmed in matching colour. Inertia reel seat belts.

Rare speedo with trip meter.

It went in to MRestorations in Leamington for the dyno work, and is still there. Consequently the MOT has run out. I don't expect there would be any trouble with getting it through.

Contact them for viewing 01676 530500

Contact me to make an offer. Chris 07976 238903

It a standard 1200 box AFAIK. The beam is an aftermarket adjustable one.

Sorry I have no pictures because I lost them all when my hard drive crashed. I can't take any more because the car isn't here with me.

The only pic I have is the one in my avatar.
<<<<<

And the car will go for the best offer I get in the next 2 weeks.

ALso they are holding the car because of a bill not being paid...they will try and take pics but its not really there job to.

That's right. They are owed about £800 for bits of work they have done. They are decent people and I don't want to keep them waiting for ever.
