I bought this car a few years ago from a good friend who had started the restoration. It's complete. I personally went through every box and can confirm this. Most of the parts were tagged or bagged and identified. What is missing is stuff like bumpers, tailight brackets and wiring.
The bug was built in 09/58 which makes it a 59 model year. It was originally L473 Alabaster White with brown interior which is a color that we don't see often.
The number matching motor was rebuilt by the renown Rick Herity at a cost of over $4000 US. It came complete and in a crate.
Most of the rust repair was done. It will need a rear parcel tray as it has pin holes as well as some work in the lower corners of the windshield. And it will need floor pans as the original ones were patched and the work was not done correctly.
The doors, hood and decklid are original to the car and are very nice. The fenders are original and have been repaired but will need further work to be correct.
Contact me if you wish to discuss further. Price listed is in US dollars.
