1963 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Additional Info:

1963 VW Beetle, very original, everyday driver, very reliable. 40 horsepower engine, first year of the "fresh air" heater, and it works well ! Speedo works, wipers work, lights work, horn works, parking brake works...I bought this several years ago and have driven it extensively, even as my daily drive to work car for a few years ! Lately it has become an errand and trip to MacDonalds vehicle, and I just don't drive it much anymore so maybe it's time to let someone else enjoy ! Good tires, brakes were mostly replaced a few years ago, new master cylinder, new wheel cylinders, new brake shoes, turned brake drums. I change points, condenser, plugs and adjust valves about every year and she starts and runs fine, uses little or no oil between changes. Odometer shows 26,400 miles and I bought it showing about 90,000 miles. I believe the mileage to be 126,400 but have no proof of that. The previous owner kept it as a show car and drove it little. Much of the car appears to be original...worn, but original ! Starts easily, runs well, handles and stops like a 60's VW .The starter drags a bit sometimes but never has failed to crank the engine. Idles well, carb and choke work just fine, the clutch doesn't slip. First gear synchronizers are worn and it's best to shift to first at a stop or very slowly moving. The transmission does not pop out of gear when driving. A few spots of rust in the lower left door post and engine cover, as most VW's of this era were prone to do. Paypal deposit of $100, balance of payment by cash at time of pickup...possible wire transfer as an option. Neither my VW nor title leave until funds are cleared. My zip code is 30707, Georgia. Buyer responsible for pickup. I can store for a while if necessary. My VW is tagged, titled and garaged in Georgia.
