eBay watch: 1959 Volkswagen Beetle in original condition

Beet1
This is rather like a piece of history, a 1959 Volkswagen Beetle in original condition.


The car has had just two owners since new, both go whom are apparently contactable, as they are father and son. From the photos, it looks like it has just come out of the factory, but that’s not entirely true.

The seats were reupholstered in the 1980s using period fabric and the motor has been overhauled. Outside of that, nothing else is listed, not even the chrome. Oh yes, just 80,000 miles on the clock of this right hand drive too.

Enthusiasts will love the originality, not least the original steering wheel and its wonderful dashboard. Downside? Well, nothing really expect that it is supplied from South Africa, so you’ll have to use the images only as a guide. However, it will be sold with the paperwork and the tax paid, making you just the third owner ever when it arrives.

If that sounds appealing, £2,000 is the current price.
