75 VW Additional Details:

This is a detailed oriented car-owner's dream. As you can see by the pictures, this isnot your normal VW. It is in like new condition. Paint is show quality. The undercarriage is rust free and painted but not "top coat-paint perfect" as you would find on trailered only show cars. Drive it every day or show it, it's up to you, but you get to start with a new looking bug!

All gauges work, clean metal with NO rust, new paint, new convertible top, conv cover, and interior. Dashpad,knobs, etc. all in beautiful condition with no issues. Chrome inexcellent condition. New Tires and polished aluminum rims. New disk brakes up front and new drum setup in rear. New torsion bars, shocks, 'struts'.

Nothing to show it's original miles so 'mileage exempt'.

Full legal SC title.

The spare tire isthe original spare tire(dated 1974actually) but on a new rim. The surprise was that therewas no corrosion or issues inmoving it to a new rim even due to its age. I wouldn't use it as an actual spare but the collector in me had to keep it.
