Description

Beautiful 1961 Volkswagen Classic Beetle, Full Frame-Up restoration less than 5,000 miles ago, over $22,000 invested in a 2 1/2 year restortation process by Custom Designs and JJ's Auto in Williams, AZ! Starting with a Southern California rust-free 1961 body and frame, the vehicle was completely stripped and rebuilt from the ground up, including transplanting a 1976, 1600 CC motor, transmission and transaxle with only 76,000 original miles from another Southern Cal rust-free Beetle. $4700 custom paint job, new interior and headliner, new chrome bumpers, hubcaps, new wheels and tires, brakes, suspension, battery, converted electrical system to 12 volt, heat exchangers, seat belts added for safety, AM/FM classic look radio, window rubbers, running boards etc etc etc. If it needed it, it got it! Also includes original classic VW wire basket roof rack and new car cover.
This Beetle attracts attention everywhere it goes and is an award-winning car, taking Best Foreign Vehicle at the 2012 Williams Cool-Country Cruise-In against dozens of other outstanding cars and trucks. Great runner, needs absolutely nothing, just hop in and enjoy a trip back to the 60s! Only imperfections are a slight paint crack on the edge of the front hood where it flexes on the stock hood prop (not casually noticeable and I use an additional front prop to hold the lid open for fueling and shows); also foam that was injected into dash to stop air leaks expanded into air grill (see pics for both). Reluctantly selling as my wife and I are retiring and intend to spend the majority of our time traveling so hoping it goes to someone who will really appreciate and drive it!
Beetle is being sold as-is, where-is with NO RESERVE! Potential bidders are welcome and encouraged to inspect the Bug in-person in Williams AZ, gateway to the Grand Canyon - cruise it down Route 66 for the perfect test drive! Buyer will be responsible for all transportation costs and arrangements or fly-in/drive out from Flagstaff AZ airport. $500 Paypal deposit due within 48 hours of auction end, full payment within 7 days or as arranged with seller. Balance payable in cash in person, cashiers check or wire transfer. Clear open AZ title, private seller, no tax in AZ. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
