Known History

This lovely and very rare Beetle with its 3-speed semi-automatic gearbox was built on the 9th December 1968 and exported to Birrfeld in Switzerland on the 10th December 1968 as shown on the VW-issued certificate. It was registered for the first time on the 29th July 1969 in the name of a lady owner from Biel. The condition of the paint and interior, together with a partially complete service booklet would indicate that the 83'000 km shown are correct. The car most probably has had only three owners and has been waxoiled (corrosion protected) from new. The floor is in very good original condition, never welded, and the coachwork, paint and interior are all in good original, patinated condition. With its front disc brakes, its «diamond blue» paint and black vinyl interior with a (optional) padded instrument panel and the obligatory net underneath for small items, this Beetle provides the perfect backdrop for authentic, unfiltered Sixties motoring. There’s even the original Ski-rack still mounted above the engine cover! The last Veteran MOT was completed in September 2015.
