1963 VW Beetle Convertible California Vehicle   Price: $32,888
1963 VW Beetle Convertible California Owned Price: $32,888 ***Price Reduction***

I’ve decided to sell my 1963 VW Convertible. I’m the 3rd owner of this fantastic Rust-Free California Black Plate Beetle having purchasing it in July 2018. It had just underwent a 3.5 year frame-off complete restoration and had not been on the road since it was purchased from the original owner in Huntington Beach, CA. Prior to that, the vehicle was not operating since 1986 and was simply sitting in the garage.
I purchased the vehicle with ZERO miles on the odometer with the previous owner just having completed the paint, chassis, and top restoration. I then decided to take it to the next level with a "mild custom" look and performance engine/transmission.
Currently the vehicle has only 1,000 miles on the new engine and transmission to break it in properly. Here is a partial list of what has been done to bring this VW Beetle Convertible to its current condition.
• 2,045 miles on restored speedometer
• New paint 2018 Jeep Wrangler “Anvil” color code PPG 923726 (4 clear coats for added depth)
• Floor pan freshly coated with Rhinoliner
• New Interior in Light grey with white piping
• New German square-weave carpeting
• New Stayfast canvas top and boot using Chuck’s Convertible parts & West Coast Classics.
• Top frame freshly powder coated
• New front beam (German) & steering box, shocks, steering dampner.
• New Front disc brakes
• New banjo steering wheel
• New 1776 motor with counter-balanced crank, mild cam, dual 44 Weber carbs.
• New German transmission with freeway-flyer 4th gear.
• Five freshly powder-coated wheels correct ivory and then color matched in Anvil.
• Restored California Black Plates with correct letters for 1963 registration
• Restored Chick Iverson Newport Beach VW/Porsche plate frame

I’ve owned several VW Convertibles over the years and this one is by far the most fun to drive and show! The early Convertibles are getting harder to find and even harder and more expensive to restore. This vehicle is completely sorted-out and ready to enjoy now! To even source an early California black plate rust-free convertible Beetle and then restore it to this level would easily cost a person $40k to $50k and well beyond!Not to mention months or years waiting for it to be completed.Clean California Title and currently registered in my name so we can both expect a trouble-free transaction. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY Call or text me for any questions. Nick (949) 500-5841
