Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1968

1968 Volkswagen Bug Convertible
I have owned this beetle for two years now, and have been working on it every so often. I finished it 3 months ago and don't get a chance to ever drive it. Started up on first click even after a month of not driving, without a single pump of gas. I purchased it from a man somewhere near San Diego that had owned it for 20+ years before me, but it had sat in his garage for almost 10-15 of those years. It was more of just a memory for him, he met his wife because of it, and went on there first date and wedding day.
I picked it up from him, andthe first thing I did was take to the body shop and gave it a fresh paint job on the exterior of the bug, all the fenders and lights were removed, and I did notice as you can tell from partial of the interior above the foot pedals is the original color peeping thru which was a pale yellow, I decided to keep it the color as it was this brilliant blue. In my opinion looks very good on this convertible beetle, because of the contrast of the black interior and black top (which is very new still).its close to an original color that they came in at the time.
(The last two pictures, I took with my iPhone; I don't know why the blue color came out so dark, the bug color is closer to rest of the 22 pictures)
I put new Stainless-Steal Moldings which will not fade and not get dinged up or scratched like the soft cheaper aftermarket kind.Re-did the interior, with premium carpet through out the car and even in the rear of the back seat and rear area, redid the pull latch for the rear seat to come down and lock in place. The side steps are reproduction, but I purchased the more expensive and sturdy(german)steps, which are very sturdy and you can actually step on them.(fyi, they still have the blue film to protect the chrome from shipping, that can be easily removed)
All four windows go up and down very smoothly. Although I have always kept it indoors, I still kept it clean and washed and never notice the Top to leak, so it does not leak and is still in very new condition. Car shifts really smooth and has a short shifter mechanism it seems, as the gears are very close. Which is a plus to me. Tires are new, and comes with a full new spare that is filled to an extra 10 psi I believe it is to be filled it around 40 psi to give pressure to the washer fluid line which is connected to the tire and keeping pressure, brakes are also firm.
I can email and provide video of it running for those who are truly interested and bidding, as I'm not sure how to upload or if its possible to get a video up here on ebay.
