Type 1 Beetle 1958 - 1967

Just one of my Volkswagens

I purchased this Volkswagen of a friend who had purchased it in the early 80's already restored. The only thing that was added was firestone whitewall tyres. Jump forward to early 2004 I took a phone call from said freind who had decided to sell. He mentioned the price that he wanted and as these don't come up for sale very often I could only say yes. So now 5 years later and many happy miles this is my 1961 Typ-152 Karmann Cabriolet

Found and purchased Beetle

        A customer of mine recently commented to me that his father inlaw had a beetle laid up in a carport since its registration had expired back in September 1994 and was considering selling. The owner originally purchased this beetle brand new back in 1965 while it was on display at the Volkswagen display stand at the Wagga Wagga show. As he had a company vehicle back then he told me he had travelled to Sydney and Melbourne once and the remainder of use was locally and on weekends to and from his favourite drinking venue. Speedo shows a total of 47184 km of which he tells me is original. Unfortunatly time has been quite hard on this example as it was never fully garaged. Even with the dry climate of Wagga Wagga it has its rust issues but really only very minor (front heater channel and floor).
