1966 One-owner Bug (California) - rare Bahama Blue   Price: $3850
Our 1966 Bug was purchased by my father (probably in late 1965; he liked getting in on the new model year pretty early) from Masterson Motors in Ventura, and it's been in the family ever since. It was overhauled back in the late 90s, and we replaced the original 1300cc engine with a 1600cc and 12V electrical system. (We've provided several jump starts over the years to cars much younger than ours!) It's served us well, but the latest from my mechanic here in Berkeley is that there are tiny flecks of metal in the oil, and the play at the end of the crank shaft could be a bearing or something more "interesting". Since I'm retired now and on a fixed income, and the Bug needs some TLC both cosmetically and mechanically, it's time to either find someone who needs a "project" or...(not sure what the alternative might be). The car functions well at the moment (I have driven it several times in the last month to my part-time job, which involves driving at freeway speeds), but my mechanic's view is that it needs a "deeper look" into the engine to nail down the work required. I don't have the time or resources to pursue that effort, and I'd rather avoid something catastrophic while out on the road. I would much rather place our beloved Bug into some good hands rather than have it "processed" by a dismantler or wrecking yard. Body has a couple of rough spots, interior is surprisingly good shape (including the head-liner) for a 50-year old car, tires have only a few hundred miles on them.
