Local Beetle fs by an actual VW person; (nice background!) Price is $3500.

<59 Delux for sale. Org. Black car. Fantastic patina! Numbers correct motor that turns freely. This is a dry car! Pans are good! Heater channels and battery tray are good! Back seat base and one front turn signal, rear bumper are all that is missing. Last tags are from 1978. Slam dunk to register. Comes with a bill of sale.>

It needs saving and I’m debating about stepping up. I’ve got the time, room, a reasonable amount of $$. I want to avoid heavy bodywork or welding in pans and heaterchannels..

I don’t actually mind the current patina, but it would probably end up getting painted eventually.

I’ve asked for interior/engine/pan photos.
