Selling my 65 Beetle. Looking for something else to play around with. I bought this car 2 years ago. I do not have much history on it. I do have the dealership check in maintenance book that shows this car was sold new at Patterson motors in Mesa , Arizona. It has the engine number filled out, which shows the car still has it's original engine. At some point in it's life this car went through a body off pan restoration. Everything still looks fresh, like you could believe it was restored last year. It's super clean. The underneath is just as clean as the top. Everything has been gone over. You can see the wire harness in the trunk has been neatly redone from the front lights to the battery under the seat and the engine compartment. All suspension and the pans have been painted and do not have that surface rust appearance. The car is very clean, no rust anywhere. Since I've owned it, I've replaced the tires, which are still new, replaced the front inner and outer wheel bearings, the clutch cable and the fuel pump. The doors shut nice. The turn signals work in the back, but front signals we're never installed. The car is a great running car. I cleaned the plugs, and added a new distributor and adjusted the valves. The king and link pins are tight and I've been greasing them every spring. There was a Sebring exhaust installed and when it was installed too much pressure was put on the rear valance and cracked the paint. You can see it in the pic. It does sound good though The fuel gauge does not work correctly. The fuel tank is new. If you shine a light into the tank you will see it is shiny inside. I will continue to enjoy the car until it sells. I have 2 other beetles and am looking to mess around with something different.
I've had a few very low offers and no one has come to look at the car. Will consider all reasonable offers. Thanks for looking. Any questions please ask, want to see it, let me know. I have sold 7 other cars on and have a 100% positive feedback score. Any questions please ask or you can call or text me at 412-445-2905.
here videos of the car.
