VW Classic Beetle
VIN: [hidden information]
often asked where we find these unique, original cars. A close friend cruises
parking lots of local retirement homes, the Elks
club, V.F.W halls and the back alleys of a well-known neighborhood here in Seattle formerly with lots of retired Scandinavian fishermen.
He can spot a seatbelt slammed in a car
door a mile away… He even notices when a vehicle drives down the road with a
turn signal left on just a little too long and he positively twitches with glee
when passing a rig with metal bumpers!
you’re in the market for a well-kept daily driver please give this nice
vintage Beetle your kind attention. It belongs to close family friends and is reluctantly being offered only because of their son's medical emergency. You’re welcome
to contact me with questions or to discuss a sale before the end of the Ebay
listing. My name is Mark and I can be reached at 206/[hidden information] (text is OK).
The photos really tell the car’s story. We believe it’s been here in western Washington
state most all its life. After a good
look-over and 20-minute drive it was pretty easy to tell the rig’s been
pampered. I’ve never encountered a 60’s
vintage ride with tighter, effortless non-power steering; one that drives down
the road straight and has no brake pull.
I take pride in the vehicles we’re able to offer here on Ebay and feel
you should know as much about them as possible. I believe, with the exception of
mechanical replacements, this classic is about as stock and original as one
could possibly hope to find. Here’s what
first question I’m always asked is about rust.
Well, this classic HATES rust and you’ll be very hard pressed to
find anything here to worry about. Yes,
the Puget Sound region gets its share of drizzle, but rarely any snow so our
winter roads aren’t salted. One
snowflake and everyone stays home.
Besides, the car hasn’t seen a winter
road in years! Climb over, under and
throughout, I know you’ll come up smiling.One turn of the key and the strong 1493 CC, 53 Horse air-cooled motor fires
right up with just one pump of the gas pedal, even when cold. The four speed shifts smoothly, just like it
should, with NO clutch slippage. The stick
has been modified with a custom short-throw T-handle shifter. I really like it!
you see in my un-retouched photos (all were taken on 8/15/2019), the overall exterior is above average having
had a respray sometime in the past to the factory-original beige/tan color. I don’t know how many years it’s been, but I’d
grade it still at nine out of ten. The windshield
glass is good with no chips or cracks. All
four solid steel wheels are wrapped with 50+% remaining radials and wear their
original “dog-dish” hubcaps. This Bug really
is a blast to drive and absolutely turns heads everywhere you go!
Take another look at the interior pics. I’m
pretty sure the upholstery was redone by a previous owner and I grade it also at
9 out of 10. No wear-through spots or
splitting seams anywhere front or back. The
original Sapphire XVIII AM radio is still in the dash, but doesn’t seem to
work. Also, the fiberboard of the passenger
door card is warped outward around the window crank making it hard to roll up
or down. A small, but annoying thing to
address.Please check all the photos over closely and call
me with any questions BEFORE you place a bid! You’re encouraged to stop
by, inspect the Volkswagen (or have a professional do it) and take it for a
test drive as it is being “sold as-is, where-is” with a free & clear
Washington State title. There are
NO title brands for any nasty negatives like salvage history, theft or flood
damage to cause you concern!
Because of the amount of money involved with a
vehicle purchase, I reserve the right to cancel your bid if you have any negative feedback. I also ask that potential bidders with a feedback
rating of five or fewer transactions on Ebay
contact me before placing their bids either through EBay’s message system or,
as outlined above, call me at 206/[hidden information]. My name is MARK. You might also consider
making an offer as many of my vehicles sell to smart “early birds” that contact
me to work out a deal prior to the auction’s end. I always reserve the right to sell during
Many of my past buyers from as far away as Alaska,
Arizona, the Midwest, Canada, Florida, New York and even the Mexican Baja have flown
in here to Seattle and then started a road trip home the same day in their
purchase. While I'm very confidant this classic could handle a long-distance drive, it’s 52 years old and has
earned the right to do short sprints over a full-blown triathalon. Shipping usually equals (or is cheaper) when
all the ancillary costs are added in – and no flat tires to deal with in the
middle of nowhere either. As a respected
Ebay seller with many satisfied online buyers, I
want you to bid with confidence knowing that the car runs and drives out as it
should AND that it is being properly represented to you! Please don’t be upset if I miss a minor flaw
or some issue comes up. NO used vehicle
is ever perfect.
