Description

According to the VW certificate, this beautiful Beetle with the rare 3-speed semi-automatic transmission was built on December 9, 1968, and was delivered to Switzerland on December 10, 1968 with destination Birrfeld. The first registration was on 29 July 1969 in the name of a lady from Biel. The state of preservation of the paintwork and the interior, as well as the not quite complete service booklet, are indicating that the 83'000 km on the odometer correspond to the original mileage. The car had probably only three owners and received a complete body cavity preservation. The underbody is in very good and unwelded original condition, the paintwork and the interior are in good original condition with patina. With front disc brakes, the contemporary "diamond blue" paintwork, black leatherette trim, optional padded dashboard with underlying storage net and the original ski holders at the rear, this Beetle perfectly represents the spirit of the late 60s. The most recent Swiss MOT including veteran status has been completed in September 2015.
