1972 Standard Beetle SOLD

Post by blue72beetle » Fri Jul 27, 2018 7:57 pm

SOLD

$3,999 obo
Located in Fort Wayne, IN
Not a show car, but it’s a good driver. Always garaged, has never stranded me. 18 year old MAACO paint job, not the best, but looks good from 20 feet. Stock 1600 engine, mileage unknown. I bought the engine from a dune buggy and installed it around 8 years ago and have put around 10,000 miles on it. No heater boxes, replaced with J-tubes. Front disc brake conversion. Rebuilt Sapphire AM/FM radio works. Fresh oil change and valve adjustment. The brakes pulse a little, but that should go away with use as it's been sitting for a long winter storage.

The worst of the rust is the battery tray of course, looks like someone screwed and glued a patch piece in (before my time, I never pulled the body off the pan). And the front of the pan. Both of these sections have replacement panels available, I just don't know how to weld, I wish I did. The rust has been like this for as long as I've had it, I don't drive it in the winter and I think that has really helped it from spreading.
Roof Rack is already gone.

Of course. But I miss every vehicle I've ever sold. If I had my own museum I'd never sell anything.

That is exactly my problem.
