History and overall condition:

I am the third owner of the car, urchased in Sacramento 4 years ago. I have been restoring and driving it ever since. Before that, he car was located in Chico with the original owner. It has a clear title.

Pans are rust free, hough the driver side door hinge will need some attention. I live less than half a mile from the beach-- any exposed metal or cheap chrome will rust. Though I diligently keep up with prevention, ccasional small rust bubbles happen in the rear near the corner vents. (An issue with all VW Beetles that possess said vents.)

I have addressed the small rust bubbles, ut internal foam insulation needs to be removed to prevent the rust from returning. Otherwise the car is solid and free of rust.

Over the years, invested over $11,000 into the vehicle. She drives well and is a real head-turner! Though not my daily driver, or the last year I have been taking the car on longer cruises and VW car club functions and shows. This car would be a perfect first air-cooled car for the younger VW fan. All of the heavy lifting has been done, nd she’s ready to roll!
