1959 Beetle. Original survivor. Turn key. CAN SHIP   Price: 15500 gbp
1959 Beetle.

For shipping info please read to the bottom.

Very original survivor car that spent its whole life in Sweden prior to me purchasing it.
A charming un restored and unmolested example.

It has lots of original paint and some repainted areas where it picked up scratches and scrapes through the years. It has some lovely fade through to primer coat here and there, stone chips and scratches. All marks from its 63 years of life giving it some great patina and character.

The interior is fully original. Original seat upholstery, door cards, rubber mats and carpets. The original headliner has had some quirky patches added if it had a nick or tear which i think adds something to its story. See pics..

Eberspacher heater.
Steering lock with original keys.
Original VW door key.
Swedish accessory door screw bungs (anti door rattle for rougher roads).
Rare ribbed Swedish gravel guards on rear fenders.
VW Mudflaps.

Original fenders with correct front wiring tubes underneath. There's a little rust on the front passenger fender lower front lip (pictured) but i have just waxed it and it will be fine for years like that. A very solid car that has survived well and has only had a few small repairs over the years.

The car came with a copy of original document from 1959 Showing it was first registered there in May of 1959.
There is only one owner a Mr Sven Augustsson showing on that paperwork. I bought it from the family of the second owner who's name was not added to that original paper.

This is a turn key car that i drive around on nice days. Its a pleasure to drive.

The car has had a brake rebuild with all new hydraulic parts (German quality where available), new shoes, handbrake cables, hard and soft lines.

Gearbox and motor removed, cleaned and fitted with new gearbox mounts, oil seal, axle boots etc.
New clutch and flywheel oil seal.
Heater boxes refreshed with new J tubes.
New exhaust.
New oil in gearbox & motor.
Serviced and running beautifully (video available).
New choke cable.
New front bearings.

The car rolls on stock bug solids with 5 new Crossply tyres.

Numbers show this (according to Samba.com technical info:
Chassis April 59
Motor February 59
Gearbox April 59.
Date on rear of speedo April 59.
First registered in Sweden May 59.
