Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1961

1961 Cal-Look ragtopPrice: 18,000
We are offering a beautiful number correct 61 Cal-looker for sale. It is loaded with top-shelf parts and lots of original and rare Porsche parts like an OG Nardi signed wheel, OG fuchs and early headlights. This is a powerful car, with looks that match. It is a great street/driver car that can easily be shown (has taken many trophies at local shows). Additionally, it has low miles (less than 2k on engine and 180 miles on drivetrain since rebuilt). The car is located in Central Texas, but willing to ship anywhere at buyer's expense. I am happy to provide links to my photo albums of the car along with documentation, receipts and any other questions that you may have. The price is fairly firm and please be advised that there is a lien (loan payoff) on the vehicle, but that's easy to take care of. Call or text is usually best @(910)284-0091 for questions or more pictures. Not looking for trades at this time.

I make every attempt to be as transparent as I can when selling vintage cars. I am still working on a few items on this list, so they may all be taken care of prior to purchase, but not guaranteed.
- Cracked pop-out latch (looking for a new one today)
- Turn signal inop (worked last month and suddenly stopped. Will be an easy fix, I just have to get to it.
