Before I begin I would encourage all serious buyers to contact me directly at: 517-425-0129 with specific questions or concerns. Although this is a 7 day auction I reserve the right to end early.

You are bidding on a unique 1959 VW Beetle. Fantastic story behind this car, I recently purchased from the brother of the original owner, the car has been in the same family since new. The gentleman's sister was the original owner of the car and believe it or not, the vehicle was won during a dominoes game in Las Vegas. To make the story even better, the original owner went on to build a successful business in Las Vegas and became an author as well. To help potential buyers verify all of the above I actually have a copy of her original book which mentions the circumstances surrounding her acquiring the car. The new owners will receive that book as part of the purchase.

The miles of 21000 are said to be original to the car and I believe they are. Obviously the beetle was driven very little, properly garaged and spent most of its life in the dry west preventing potential rust issues. Just prior to her passing she commissioned a full restoration of the vehicle, done very well inside and out. Professional repaint in what she referred to as “orchid”. Depending on the light it leans towards a silver/gray or in bright sun, to a light metallic blue. It was very difficult to capture the true color in the pics but it is quite appealing.

In addition to the cosmetic restoration inside and out, the drivetrain has been refreshed as well, engine compartment still very fresh and detailed nicely. Overall interior is “as new”, still retains the original AM radio. All gauges, lights etc. work properly. All exterior chrome, trim, weatherstrip in very nice condition as well as the glass.

Please take the time to review all the pics and don’t hesitate to call with further questions; 517-425-0129. I also have contact with a reasonable shipping company and would be glad to assist. Vehicle offered by a licensed Mi dealer.
