For sale,
November 1953 Oval window Beetle.

This is a matching numbers car, and has been well known within the Scottish Volkswagen scene for many years. The car has spent it's entire life in and around the Glasgow area, and is offered for sale with the original buff log book. There have been only three owners in it's sixty four years, and the mileage is very low with just 63,000 miles on the odometer. It still has it's original 25hp engine fitted, which runs very well. The interior is original, with only a few pieces of the carpeting replaced. Everything works as it should. Some restoration has been carried out, but this has been limited to replacement of three of the wings, and an older respray. The second owner ran a well known VW agency, and looked after the car for the original owners, so it has been cared for correctly, and not updated in any way.
The car is to be sold to a serious enthusiast. If you are looking for a patina ride, or a Beetle to lower, this is not the car for you.

Asking price 15,000, ono.

A set of reproduction rear lights for a 1952 Split Rear Window Beetle

 Including the lamp bodies, the metal rings which locate the spring clips that hold the lenses in place, the bulb holders and the mounting rubbers. All that is missing are the mounting fastners and bulbs.

The lamp bodies are powder coated in gloss black but curiously the lens mounting rings are not attached to these, so will have to fitted either using silicon sealant, a waterproof adhesive or be braized in position. If the latter option is used then unfortunately the powder coating will be damaged and a repaint will be necessary, but this will not matter unless your car is black.

Totally Mint 1971 Volkswagen Beetle 1300

This is a beautiful, mint and unrestored 1971 1300 VW Beetle. I acquired this Beetle a couple of years ago from a gentleman that had owned it all of its life. He has looked after it like no other car you will see!

To find a RHD Beetle in this unbelievable condition is very rare! No restoration work has been done on this vehicle. It has been garaged and regularly wax oiled.

All original paint and in immaculate condition inside and out. This car drives like brand new! Doors shut like brand new! All original stickers still present. Keys are un worn. Foot pedal rubbers are unworn! All seats are like new!

Comes with original steel wheels.

And the best bit - only 44,000 documented miles!

You have to see this car to believe it! It belongs in a museum!

30 BHP 1200cc engine originally out of a 56 Karmann Ghia.30 BHP 1200cc engine originally out of a 56 Karmann Ghia.

Engine number 1-534-516

This engine has been stored for many years, recently partially stripped to clean out the debris before getting running. The silencer is half holes, half rusty steel so basically scrap and the fuel pump has not been touched. Apart from that it is complete with all of its original 30 BHP ancillaries. There is only a small amount of crankshaft end float so I would assume that rebuilding with standard size bearings, piston rings, gaskets etc. and repainting the tinware would result in a really good original type engine for a 50s Bug, Ghia or Split.

Can be seen running, call Andy for more information, 750.00 + VAT

Sorry no picture I have for sale Safer Motoring/VW Motoring magazines, every edition from May 1970 to December 2004. They are all in binders but there condition varies, due to age, especially as the paper used was not so good in the early years. I therefore am asking for offers. Note they will need collecting as the weight is considerable, the later volumes are 3.5 Kg each.

If you could help I would be most grateful, otherwise the car is not going to get out much until the spring. I have the ivory knob and the little collar to attach it to the dashboard but one of my headlight wires seems to have welded itself into the switch along with the screw.

Wanted: Parts to get my 53 Zwitter back on the road...

1 X rear brake drum.

Late Split/Early oval

Fenders/Wings - rear ribbed wings wanted in repairable condition. Also front wings if there are any used but good ones out there!

Heart tail light bulb holders

Zwitter rear window chrome trim pieces

Steering/track rod arms in good condition... The guy who had the car before me slammed it and annoyingly, despite not using the original beam and spindles to cut up he DID cut up and shorten the track rods... So to take it back to std I now need these track rods.

An original period correct engine, preferably a complete correctly dated Dec 52 or Jan 53 25hp but a later 30 or 36 will do as I intend to do a old speed okrasa type conversion anyway.. Anything complete and with the built in generator stand considered TBH!

Zwitter ignition key and matching switch

I know they're all a tall order!!
