VW Beetle

Description (updated on 08/05/2011 at 06:56pm):

I'm starting racing again so my Beetle project has to go. Its a 1973 VW Beetle with the 1600cc engine. I have a couple of spare parts including a new steering,wheel,handbrake rubber cover, alternator belt.

Body is in pretty decent condition.
Interior needs new carpets
Dash needs tiding up
It is driving, engine and gearbox are fine
Carbs will need setting up,she stalls when shifting down if revs drop too low
Drivers seat isn't fixed properly.
New Wipers installed
Interior has been cleaned up ready for new carpets
Seats are in good nick
Engine is clean and isn't dropping any oil.
Headlight work as do the brake lights
Front indicators need new bulbs
Drivers window winder doesnt work

I have spent money on her and I have seen rust buckets going for more money. Looking for 1400e or nearest offer. I have found some more spares including a new set of rubber window seals.

She is far from mint but a set of carpets and some light work and she would make a very nice little car. However this isnt a car for you if your are planning to buy it and do no work on her, the price reflects this.

Located in South Dublin.

Design_Dude asked a question 19/01/2011 11:21 pm (4 years ago):
What is the paintwork like? Do you have the original bumpers?
LIGHTNING says 20/01/2011 1:15 pm (4 years ago):
Sorry for the delay, the car was supposed to be sold but then the seller pulled out. I dont have the original bumpers, I was going for the Cal look so no bumpers. The paintwork is ok, not showroom condition but not terrible. If anybody wants to view drop me a PM. I dont want to be posting my number on the forum.

Price drop to 1300e

Best regards

hi can you please tell me what is the top speed of this vehicle?
LIGHTNING says 24/01/2011 5:09 pm (4 years ago):

It doesnt need any major welding, wheel arches are in good nick. It had some welding done to it in the past.

Car is still available.

Model number is 1303, I have a video of the engine running. Ill upload it as soon as I can. I will take 1100 for her.

Ah that is a shame. 1303 is unsuitable for the project I intend on doing.

Added photo of engine bay and dropped the price. I dont have much documentation apart from the log book. I also have a new hot rod style steering wheel.

Do you know Ted Bundy had a car exactly like that!
POLO11 asked a question 04/05/2011 1:30 am (3 years ago):
could you use it every day?
tetas asked a question 07/05/2011 2:33 pm (3 years ago):
hi is car still available and if yes can you pm
LIGHTNING says 08/05/2011 2:45 pm (3 years ago):
I started her up today and I was unable to get into gears using the clutch. Think the clutch needs work. Car will need to be towed. Dropping price to 799 due to this. Car needs to be gone soon as its taking up space.
