Description:

1972 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Convertible

Beautifully 1972 VW Type 1 Convertible.
A little history about this car; This car was a genuine barn find out of far East Texas, actually found in a barn. With just changing the oil, gas and a set of ignition points we were able to drive it back to Dallas.
I did the mechanical restoration, I am a 40 year experience Technician that got my start in the 60s at Economy Volkswagen dealership on Lemon Ave. I had a good friend in the body business do the body work, with replacing all the fenders, bumpers and floor pans ( done right ). With another friend doing the interior and top.
Great detail was given to the restoration of this car, the odometer at time of purchase was 51,000 and after having done the restoration I believe the odometer to be the true and original miles.
This is a very solid car - The Transmission is original, Engine, is original, I did rebuild the Engine putting back stock with OEM parts. Transmission is still the original trans with no issues so resealed and fresh fluid. New Top, interior, window and door seals etc. Must see to appreciate the quality of work.
