Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1977

Beautiful classic convertible. Runs great.
We bought this from the original owners. It has been garage stored with regular but limited use. It was originally fuel injected although the prior owners converted it to carburetor which was a common practice since the fuel injection was not very good. I have a box of fuel injected parts that came with the car.
We replaced the top and have the original top cover (boot). The only obvious functionality problem is the front seat releases. The cable from the levers to the latches is broken so the latches need to be manually manipulated in order to lean the seats forward. We were told this is a common issue which can be repaired although we haven't looked into it. And as noted, t was verbally reported that the odometer was replaced around 18000 miles so the current reading is not actual for the car.
Very fun to drive.
