1959 VW Bug / Beetle for sale


Nicely restored example of an original
1959 bug to factory specifications.  The car has its original numbers
matching (#[hidden information]) 1200cc (36 HP) engine and 6 volt charging
system.  The body, interior & chassis, and trim restoration was
completed by the previous owner in 2011.  This restoration addressed
the following:

•             Beautiful
exterior & interior black paint job

•             All
glass is original and in excellent condition

•             All
new correct stainless trim

•             All
new correct interior (seats, headliner, door panels, and carpeting)

•             All
new body (mount to floor panel) and fender gaskets

•             All
new rubber moulding (door, window, hood, and motor compartment) -- cabin is

In 2012, in excess of USD$10,000 was
invested on maintenance and upgrades (receipts included) including:

•             Motor
overhaul in September 2013 @ 12,128 miles (current reading is 24,728 miles)

•             New

•             New
front shocks (rear shocks were in good condition so not
installed.  The set of new rear shocks is included with the car)

•             New
starter motor

•             New
clutch and components in April 2015

I purchased the car in April 2015
(13,599 miles) and have addressed the original charging system, replacing the 6
volt generator, voltage regulator, and added a new 6 volt battery.  I also
had the stock fuel pump re-built with German components.  Last year I
completely overhauled the brakes ($3,000) on all four corners.  Recent
tune up with new stock points and condenser.  Runs perfect.

There is no shortage of these older
bugs (pre-1967) available on the market, but this late 1950's restored example
in this desirable colour combination of black with brick red interior, and
classic Coker whitewalls narrows your choices
considerably.  Generally, the older the car, the higher the price,
assuming similar condition.  Pre-'53 split windows and pre-'58 oval
windows are highly sought after, not to mention the 1[hidden information] (still no fuel
gauge), followed by the 1[hidden information].  Obviously, beetles continue on
from 1968 models all the way to current front engine designs, but those bugs
typically appeal to a different enthusiast. 

There are no issues whatsoever, and the
car runs and drives perfectly.  The synchros for second gear are slightly
worn, but cause no drivability issues.  Any questions are welcomed
and additional photos are available upon request.  This is not a
Concours Show Winner, but it is an excellent quality, restored example with
nice paint, newer interior, confident engine where everything works and
functions as it should have in 1959.  Although not concours, it has
won several awards at regional VW and vintage car shows.

These cars are an
investment.  Market values for vintage beetles are taking off and it
is expected that these cars will only increase in value over time -- especially
the restored examples from the 1950's and early 1960's.  This has
already been witnessed since 2006-ish with these cars, and even more so over
the past three years (See Hagerty Chart below).
