Description from The Vendor:
We have owned our beloved Beetle `BlueBelle’ for 6 years. We wanted an original, unmolested/unrestored car, and she fitted the bill perfectly. She’s been locally owned from new, with the original service log (still present) having multiple stamps for servicing carried out at Stour Valley VW (Bournemouth) for the first 5 years.
Following that, servicing and maintenance have been done by enthusiastic DIY owners (just 4 keepers before us). In addition to the original service record, she also comes with the original instruction manuals and a period color brochure. She also has two sets of keys!
Original stickers are present on windows, door shuts, petrol flap etc. All windows are originals, etched with the car’s number plate. Original numbers plates are still in place. A 1970s chromed AA badge is still fixed proudly in place on the front bumper.
As a base model 1200 (Sparkafer), it has the perhaps more desirable metal dash, painted to match the body colour. The only modification during our ownership has been the addition of decent inertia seatbelts in the rear, making it a bit safer for transporting our children — something we’ve loved doing.
It’s matching numbers, with the original engine and gearbox present and correct, and mechanically it’s very strong. Again, this was something we were looking for.
Yes, we’re a bit gutted to be selling her!
This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle 1200 is very sound for a 47 year old “Kaefer” and has been loved and looked after by the vendor for the past 6 years. The DVLA say that there have only been 4 previous owners. She comes with an original sales brochure, instruction manual and service book with a good number of stamps. The last stamp showed a mileage reading of 71.735. She is now looking for a good home and may be viewed, strictly by appointment.
