Description

"The Volkswagen Beetle is a true icon of 20th Century motoring and occupies a significant position in the minds and hearts of drivers and enthusiasts across the globe. It is the longest running and most manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world with over 21 million cars produced between 1938 and 2003. The 1960's brought great strides in motorway development and Volkswagen's competitors were building ever faster cars to cover the tarmac. The '1300' was fundamental in ensuring that the Beetle was able to keep up with the modern pace. From 1970 the engines in the Beetle were up rated to 1500cc and 1600cc from 1971 producing 60bhp.
Offered in white with black trim, this beautifully restored Beetle is offered with the 1600cc engine, a benefit when using in modern road conditions. This example is MoT exempt and fabulous value; a great way to enter classic car motoring at a modest outlay. Viewing highly recommended."
