Well it brings a tear to my eye every time I look at the pics of this bug. This was the find of a lifetime, found ten minutes from my home rotting in a driveway with four flat tires, a mountain of sludge in the gas tank, and a couple lil critters made their home in there.
Yes I know this car looks very much like the last 72 I sold below, but they actually are very different. This one came as a super beetle with the Semi-Auto transmission, which to me are not as desirable but many of the ladies actually like them.
From time to time you come across a few gems that need very lil to get them going, and this was the one. This bug I had shipped in from cali, once she was released from the truck, she started with a flick of the key, and I buzzed my way home.
This lil guy was a body on resto. We like doing those, especially the ones from Cali, like this guy! Super solid car to start out with, fresh paint, interior, chrome, you name it.
This was a sweet lil bug that I found off of eBay from Cali. She came pretty much complete. We tweaked up the chrome, seats, headliner, seals, put new white walls on, you name it!
This 1970 lil bugger was a great daily/show driver, it fit perfectly in the two, she was a strong runner that had great eye appeal. We put new floor pans on this one along with a new interior from Sew Fine.
Oooo it was so hard to see this one go. This one sold in the same week I sold the ’61 rag below. Both were incredible showroom pieces.
This was one of my best restos along with the ’58 ragtop that sold in the same week. We bought this car with an already solid foundation…
There is something about black that I always like, it is just real vintage. It is a color that will never go bad or get old.
Can I say I love Cali cars? Well I do, they are the best to buy from cause of all the dryness. This car needed a good freshening.
