A true nut and bolt restoration which included new floor pans, new wings etc etc the body is still in outstanding condition and the bright red paintwork simply stunning.
As you can see from the pictures the panel fit is excellent, the original VW glass and quarter lights are in perfect order as are all the lights. The underside of the car is as detailed as the top. Complimented with Billet style running boards this is a stunning looking Bug...
Filling the arches are set of unmarked 4 spoke 15-Inch 5.5J black diamond cut alloy wheels, shod with all matching as new Admiral Powermax 185/65 R15 tyres. As part of the restoration work the brakes were upgraded to a dual circuit brake system with front disc conversion, the stopping power is excellent with a good positive feel to the pedal.

The engine was fully rebuilt with new 87mm barrels, new pistons etc, new distributor, coil, fuel lines and pump, new fuel tank, new Twin Weber ICT34 carburettors the list goes on and on all work completed during the restoration and has covered a mere 2700 miles since. The EMPI short shift gear stick selects all gears positively, the clutch is light and positive... Perfect.
The unmistakable sound of the VW Beetle is legendary and this particular car is no exception courtesy of a new two tip Mil exhaust system, ceramic coated. The engine pulls strongly with no hesitation, it cruises effortlessly and idles as it should… Wonderful and such fun to drive.
