GORGEOUS BREAST CANCER, FIND A CURE 1955 Oval Bug   Price: $19,700.00
Do you want to celebrate the woman in your life who has beaten breast cancer or is currently battling breast cancer?

Is the breast cancer cause near and dear to your heart? Every one of us knows a mother, sister, aunt, friend, or daughter that has been touched by this terrible disease.

I bought this car and restored it after I lost my own mother in her long fight against breast cancer.

This car was done a tribute to her and helped me work through the grief that I experienced from her passing.

You are bidding on a custom restored 1955 Volkswagen Beetle type 1 oval window.

This is an early production European spec with semaphores, heart tail lights, the correct front seats and seat tracks, original steering wheel, solid body, new floor pans, completely lined with Dynamat inside for a quieter ride (not sure if that's possible with VW's though...LOL)

It has a later 1600cc dual port motor, rebuilt late style swing axle transaxle with freeway flyer gears (3.88)

Good Brakes, brand new tires, runs and drives great.

This truly is a one of a kind car done in a Breast Cancer theme.

This a true head-turner. You would not believe the number of comments I receive when I drive it around. I have taken her (Rosie) in parades and women stand up and cheer and cry when they see her rolling down the street. I keep a bag full of swag in the back seat and every time someone shares their story with me I give them something from the bag I drive around with.

This car would make a lovely addition to anyone looking for a collector car that is unique and brings awareness to such a worthy cause. I used this car as my daily driver for a couple of months when I was between cars and she runs great. She was restored and California and brought up here to Sun Valley Idaho a couple of years ago when we relocated. You will have to adjust the idle for your altitude but otherwise than that she runs great.

I have the original windshield wiper motor and all extra parts will come in a box inside of her. The only thing that is a cosmetic flaw is right inside the drivers side door (see the last picture) the pink liner is riped from my purse strap being caught in the door and me yanking it out (yes, it was a stupid thing to do but it's not even noticeable with the door shut.) The last picture shows the tear on the liner.

She's a clean car and has been a special project car for me.

Please feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have. (For all of the engine nerds out there I DID not do the engine work, so if you have specific questions about it I'm not much use in answering those questions.)

I have lots of videos of her being driving but I'm not able to upload them here for some reason.

Shipping is at buyers expense. I'm located in Hailey Idaho, which is closet to Sun Valley, the closest major city is Boise, which is 2.5 hours away.

I will only accept a bank wire transfer or cash if you pick the car up in person (NO cashiers checks or Money Orders)

You can call me at 702-580-8588 if you have any questions. Please email me for lots more pics or videos of her.
