1971 1300 Beetle

MOT until 29 Sep 2016

Currently SORNed

This is my daughters beetle which she has owned for 5 years and I am selling it on her behalf. Since she has owned it I have taken care of all the necessary rust repairs and it is now structurally sound. The list includes:

• Drivers side heater channel
• Drivers side front quarter panel
• Drivers side rear quarter panel
• Drivers side lower A post/hinge panel
• Drivers side rear crossmember
• Drivers side wheel arch repairs
• Passenger side rear crossmember
• Passenger side wheel arch repairs
• Passenger side lower A post/hinge panel
• Passenger side front quarter panel
• Passenger side heater channel front repair
• Front lower bulkhead
• Entire front clip was replaced by previous owner (badly) and has now been re-welded

The car is fitted with a period stereo radio/cassette with four speakers, rear parcel shelf, has mini metro high back front seats, new carpets, 4 brand new inertia seat belts, electric windows and remote control alarm/immobiliser and central locking, 4 recent-ish new tyres and a fairly new battery, new solid fuel line and all new brake lines.

The last MOT only required me changing one rear brake cylinder with no other advisories.

Now the not so good bits. The body is a little scruffy in places, but is, on the whole, sound. The paint, Rover Amaranth purple applied by a previous owner, is not perfect but wouldn't take too much to make good. That was the plan but a new car for her came first so it is time for it to go.
