Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1956

1956 Beetle DeLuxe Sedan and assorted parts $13,000I have been the "caretaker" this Beetle since July of 1975, and it has been kept in a garage since 1979. Its time for it to move on to a new "caretaker”. This Beetle was built on June 22, 1956 and has a palindrome chassis number 1226221. The chassis number coincidentally contains its build month and day in both the US and European formats. Interior has the original seats, door cards and headliner. Floor pans were replaced in 1998 when the body was repainted after an accident to the left front fender and hood (replaced with correct fender and hood). Engine was rebuilt in 1979 and has 25K miles. Transmission is in good shape, except for reverse which pops out if the lever is not held in place. Will probably need brake work as it has not been driven in a couple of years.
