For sale is my 1963 Gulf Blue VW Beetle / Bug. This is a great driving bug with mostly original paint. One fender may have been replaced based on the non-OG fender beading.
****************NOTE THIS IS NOT A 1966 AS THE EBAY AD / CATEGORY STATES ******************
Body / Pan: I believe the paint is mostly original. It has a nice patina that's been sprayed over with clear satin. It has not been sanded smooth. The body was removed and painted clear on the inside and out. The heater channels are solid with no evidence of rust. The driver side rear fender has a 4" section that needs to be cut out and welded (see pic). When the body was removed, the pan was cleaned and painted. The bumpers are repop single blades.
Drivetrain: The motor, a 1600 dual port has approximately 5000 miles along with the transaxle. The tin has been powder-coated. All the accessories are new such as carb, and alternator. It has an aftermarket stainless exhaust with an aggressive sound. A stock German dansk muffler comes with it.
Suspension: The front beam is a CB 4" narrowed and adjustable with drop spindles. The rear is stock with it adjusted down one outer spline. The brakes are new and stock.
Wheels: It rides on black powder-coated Sprint Stars with studded drums. The center caps are Porsche units.
Accessories: It comes with a nice slanted-style roof rack, front driving light, tachometer, rear "STOP" signal that wired with brake light, rear shades, reproduction swan mirrors and probably more.
Payment: I accept cashiers/bank check, cash or wire transfer. The funds have to be cleared in my bank until it's released.
Shipping: Buyer is responsible for all shipping and shipping plans. It won't leave my residence until payment is made in full. I'll be happy to help load the car or meet the driver in an open area. When I purchased it, I used a double-axle U-haul trailer.
