1962 VW Beetle Original Survivor

1962 VW Beetle Original Survivor

Truly an original inside & out, this Ruby Red beauty has been well cared for. With just 109k original miles, even the interior is all original (plastic covers on rear since new!), dash has no molestation, and all glass is original with exception of windshield. Original manual, service book, sales invoice, and VW window sticker. The 6 VOLT original engine runs strong. Tires are newer and we just completed the following repairs/replacements: new shocks (4), new battery, new transmission mounts (3), new clutch spring & disc, new brakes and lines, new starter w relay, new turn signal switch, new fuel tank sending unit, new rear window rubber & more.

The paint is all original with exception of some previous owner applied touch up and there are scratches, dings/dents and signs of minor dent reapairs. There is obvious rust in regular VW locations, but seemingly not terminal. Driver side pan has poorly installed plate covering damage and there is additional damage along the channel on driver side (Driver side pan should be replaced). Rest of pan shows no signs of rust (even under battery!), but several spots on body where fenders attach, and near bottom of side panels have visible signs of some rust.

Clear CA title in hand with current registration (through Mar 2015) YOM plates. Engine and chassis numbers match, and currently waiting for the Volkswagen Stiftung Auto Museum to send "birth certificate" which was ordered in March 2014.
