1978 Volkswagen Beetle Karmann **SOLD**

A charming VW Beetle Convertible with body by Karmann in glorious Red with Black leather interior and a thick mohair roof.

This was originally German delivered, but has resided in the UK since 1990 with MOT records in the history file since 1993 corroborating the very modest mileage accrued on these shores.

A former London resident with some receipts for servicing at that time, it was however one Cambridgeshire family who have had the most enjoyment from this car from 2001 to 2017.  It was they who enlisted the services of respected Aston Martin specialist, Desmond Smail, to undertake a full repaint and thorough service of this car in 2003, and it was with Des that the car was maintained throughout their ownership.

Today, this car presents in good order, with a few signs of age but nothing untoward.  The engine appears to be in good health with strong oil pressure and smooth power delivery, albeit, not sufficient at the top end to put you licence in jeopardy….

We have recently replaced all four tyres and the car has received a full service and health check.  With nothing to do in the immediate term but enjoy it, don’t hesitate to contact us if a charismatic four-seat convertible is on the cards for you this Spring and Summer!
