61 Beetle project.   Price: 4000
1961 VW Beetle 1200 model restoration project.

Recently imported from Sweden where it had been sitting locked inside a shipping container for many years.
The car has been off the road since 1978!

Some of this time in dry storage, some of the time i guess not.
This is an original colour code car with contrasting grey steering wheel, gear shifter and handbrake lever.

Here is a link to around 130 pictures:


The car needs restoration. Typical lower body rust repairs to heater channels, rear bumper mounts, rear body to chassis panels etc. A previous owner seems to have been teaching themselves to weld on the car as there are some non too pretty "repairs" to the sills and quarters. Not so big a deal as these areas are commonly replaced anyways and that's the case here. Its going to be a heater channels and adjacent panels job on this car. In addition on the left side there is some old damage to the roof and door (see pictures) which could be left if you are looking to just patina ride the car or would need some tlc to get fixed. Not sure what happened here, no history passed forward about that. Wings as you can see from the pictures have various dents, rust etc to deal with. Rear right was tack welded in place at some point. Pictures will tell the full story...

There seems to be a lot of original paint but some areas which were repainted.

Nice original dashboard, original 1961 seats.

Rolling on original running gear. Gearbox, brakes, suspension, steering all complete and original.

Please view the pictures which show all areas of the car. Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

I do have a mostly complete 1960 30hp motor should you be interested in a period correct (or close to it) motor to go with the project. This would be an additional cost item.

Delivery / shipping no problem. Please just message me with your location for a quote.
