Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1965

Let me begin by saying:
1. I don't need to sale my "Bug" for any financial, oving, nother project reason; I'm simply considering selling to seek out a "Volksrod" or if she doesn't sale, ove her in the garage and do a complete "Body Off" restoration. Don't want to make her a "Volksrod" simply due to the fact that her value lies in her being a "65" - Hard/Crank Sun-Roof - fairly nice shape Type I "Bug" - want to keep her that way. Looking for a "completed" Volksod where someone else did the work (most of the work).
2. The "Bug" is a "Daily Driver" and by that I mean I can jump in her whenever I want, ake a nice cruse up the Lake (Lake Erie) or to a local show. She isn't my only vehicle - only driven for the fun of it.
3. I purchased the "Bug" basically like she is, ther than some of the engine upgrades I will identify. [and some of the obvious stickers :-)]
4. It appears that the "Bug" at some time was restored, his based on the re-paint, ew interior, ewer tires, verall condition etc.
5. She looks nice, et's "thumbs up" by everyone, uns good but has some very minor issues that one would need to address if wanting to bring her back to "Show Quality". No issues affect her drive-ability....or operational concerns, ostly cosmetic.
With that said, ets continue
1965
VW - Type I
Beetle - "Bug"
Red Exterior
Beige / Black Interior
70,432 Miles
(will change since I do drive her)
Runs - Drives Great
Smooth shifting
Smooth Stop/Go
Someone at some time did a "restoration" on her, obtained her this way other than some engine work as noted:
  • Oil change (include screen)
  • New Plugs
  • New fuel lines
  • New (electronic) Distributor
  • Carb Rebuild (new-larger jets)
  • Valve Adjustment
  • Some new bolts - screws
  • Replaced Heater Duct Hose
  • Replace one exhaust
  • Misc. parts - adjustment
(All this was done by a local - well known - well respected VW Mechanic)
"Bug" came with a really nice, reat sounding CD Receiver/Receptor
JVC KD-S39
and
4
Great Sounding
JVC Speakers
When you play this system - put a CD in it, he sound is unbelievable loud and clear
"Bug" is equipped with the somewhat rare (adds to value)
Hard Top - Crank Open
"Sun Roof"
(No leaks)
All glass is clear and good
Tires are almost "New"
I've taken a number of pictures of the vehicle
Attempted to take pictures of the undercarriage but without putting her on a lift is somewhat difficult but I can tell you from what I have seen by crawling underneath the pans, nd heater channels are intact.
Have two (2) hubcaps only
All in All
She's in pretty good shape. May have missed some "minor" issues but not attempting to hide anything from any potential buyer.
  • The value in this car lies in the fact that she runs, rives, tops and goes great!
  • Interior is fairly "new", o need to replace
  • Nice body, ome minor concerns but nice
  • Undercarriage looks nice - intact.
  • Good engine - runs great - some improvement done.
  • Good Glass
  • Good (nearly new tires)
  • Jump in drive
  • Repair - Re-do while you enjoy her.
  • Take to any show as is.

Not perfect but remember she is 50 years old
If your looking - If you know your VW "Bugs" - If you stay in the early - mid "60s" That's where the value is and is climbing
