1960 Euro Sunroof Jade   Price: 25000
I am offering a 1960 Euro Sunroof Beetle that I acquired in a multi vehicle purchase a few years ago. I have maintained and driven this car and have enjoyed itís pure originality. It still wears most of itís original L349 Jade Green paint, left front fender, upper rocker covers and left quarter panel were repainted at some point in itís life. No evidence of any rust repair or accident damage. The is one small dent in the lower right side of the decklid which could probably be pushed out from the rear.

The car was also updated with front mounted signal lights on the fenders as well as later 62-67 euro taillights due to local regulations. The semaphores are still installed but are not operational due to upgrade. The sunroof cover, headliner, seat covers, door panels, carpet, floor matsÖetcÖ.are all original. The car has a few neat period accessories like the Kamei rear parcel storage shelf, the clothes bar, the Bambus tray and locking steering column. Not sure if the Coco mats are original but are in nice condition. All glass is original including the windshield.

I have the Stiftung certificate certifying that the motor is matching and shows build date of February 2, 1960 and delivered on February 3, 1960 to OffenBurg/Germany. The dealer badge is from A.V. Deschwanden KG Ė Offenburg/Baden. It also has many VAG and ADAC stickers showing itís European heritage. And it also has an old Lemania Coccinelle Club sticker. I would love to know if anyone here has ever heard of that club and where itís located.

I have flushed and replenished all fluids (fuel, motor oil, gearbox oil and brake fluid). I have also replaced front wheel bearings/seals and rear axle seals. New german fuel reserve valve at the tank. Brakes have been serviced and it drives and stops very well. Mileage showing is 79,506 kms which is believed to be original. That around 50,000 miles. Still 6 volt.

Everything works including horn, dome light and heat. Comes with original tool kit and wooden fuel dip stick. Tires are new Firestone Gum Dipped wide white walls. It also comes with a green tint wind deflector that I purchased from a vendor on this site. It helps eliminate the buffeting while driving at higher speeds.

I can assist with shipping. Vehicle is located on the east coast of Canada.
