This car was first registered in June 1955. The owner died sometime in 1978 or 1979 and was inherited by a man who lived in Chertsey, Surrey. He kept it for a short while but decided to sell it in May 1979, advertising it in the local paper. I purchased the car from him in 1979.

At some time the first owner had painted the wings blue, fitted spotlights, a reversing light and flashing indicators. Apart from these changes the car was original. The flashing indicators supplement the original semaphore indicators (which still work) and were probably fitted as safety aid as increasingly fewer road users would be familiar with semaphores.

In the 1980s I fitted seat covers to protect the original seating material which remains in excellent condition. This is the only change that I have made though obviously there have been replacements of the usual consumable items, tyres, wiper blades and plugs etc. All other components are original including the engine. I do have an original tyre.

Though the original silver metallic paint has faded the car remains incredibly original and structurally very solid.

The car has a very low and genuine mileage (68,923). I now use it on a few occasions throughout the year, providing there is no prospect or rain, just to drive around the local country lanes.

I have a quantity of parts that will also be available. In normal circumstances the car would not be for sale.

The car is kept in a dry garage in Farnham Surrey where it can be viewed.

Sensible offers please.

Sorry no pictures... 1958 beetle, right hand drive.

Original paint (black)-motor-gearbox-service book and key holder. No rust!! Has never seen any salt. Low mileage. Second owner(30years). A real gem that needs to be polished by its new owner.

The beetle is at my mom's house in Johannesburg and I could help with arranging the shipping to England. That is the reason why it is completely rust free and original except for the interior (sun). It is parked in the garage for the last 10 years.

Price: £10,000

VW Kubelwagen 1940 > 1945 Front Offside 1/4 Panel Upper Section

When doing some work on my Kubel earlier this year, I needed some replacement metalwork within the lower wheel arch, and having acquired the repair panels, which were produced some years ago, they turned out to be a wrong fit, and unusable, despite much effort to make them fit.  Today, the only panel available from the Czech Republic, is the complete 1/4 panel, which I bought, and only used the lower section.  I'm sure somebody somewhere could do with this.

As it cost me £400 for the complete panel, I'm looking for £200 for this upper section.  If interested, please call or e-mail me.

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.

£200 ono.

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!

£13,500.00 ovno

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
