1976 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Additional Info:

This is a great project car that only needs some TLC. It runs and drives well for its age. The previous owner removed the fuel injection and installed an early 70's carbureted engine. I tore down the engine and cleaned it up, as the previous owner had let water sit in a couple of the cylinders. There was some surface rust that I polished. One of the heads had some pitting around the valves that I polished out. I purchased a replacement engine block that was fully restored (see below) and had plans to swap it out. I installed a professionally rebuilt carburetor, and it was running great when I parked it a couple years ago. I start it and drive it every few months, and it runs a little more roughly each time, so it probably needs a fresh tank of gas. The top has some peeling, but operates and latches correctly. All windows roll up and down. Gauges work but dash panel is in rough shape. Tires have good tread. A couple of fenders have dents.
What you see is what you get. I'm including a lot of new parts so please see the list below.
4pc black interior panel kit.
Black carpet kit
Extra, professionally rebuilt engine (see pics). I purchased this from a friend of a friend, so I don't know too much about it. I just know it was completely rebuilt and has been sitting in a garage for years.
Red paint kit from Summit Racing.
Misc engine parts
EMPI exhaust with 4 tailpipes (not pictured)
This is being sold as-is. It can be driven around town, but I would have it checked by a mechanic before driving long distances. It passed safety inspections last year.
The buyer will need to arrange shipping. I can deliver it to a local shipper if they are within 20 miles of 84119.
