Up for sale is my 1966 VW Bug Convertible. I purchased this car in the mid-ninetys. I spent the next 7-8 years restoring it to show-winning condition. I successfully campaigned the car for about 2 years, during which I put exactly 7918 miles on the car. I got married, had kids and ran out of time. The car has been in storage for about 10 years. my wife has been bugging me to sell it but I could not bring myself to do so. I am now in need of the space and am ready to move it on so someone else can enjoy it. The car is in essence a new car with 7918 miles on it that has been sitting for 10 years, as such the paint will need some attention. The paint would be good enough for a daily driver but not good enough to be competitive in the show scene. Paint on the hood is the worst with oxidation (please see pictures). The car is rust-free with the exception a small crush spot in the rails (please see Pictures). Spare tire well had a few pinholes, rust was neutralized and covered inside with a layer of fiberglass (for pinholes). This auction DOES NOT INCLUDE THE ENGINE! (I will be using the engine on another project). As you can clearly see form the photos this car is in driver plus condition. The car could be full show with the addition of a coat of paint. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own this cool ride! $20,000.00 in receipts. Please ask questions before bidding. I will make myself reasonably available for pre-purchase inspection, and I actually encourage this. I will also answer questions by phone at 916-397-8566, I am PACIFIC time zone.
