Description 1973 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE RED

I have for sale here my red LHD VW Beetle 1200, manufactured 1973, originally made in Mexico, then spent most of its life in Poland, where it was lovingly looked after for many years. When the gentleman owner became too old to manage the car it was brought to England by his son for sale in 2012. This was when I purchased the car, and have had 3 enjoyable years regularily driving it and taking it to shows, events etc. the car has been in use most weeks and is started at least once a week to ensure good running. It has always been well maintained and serviced, and passed its last MOT in April, requiring some adjustment to the brakes, and an advisory for a small oil leak, and slight play to drivers seat, which is now fixed,
Overall the car is in very good condition, has certainly had at some point replacement panels and been resprayed, generally the car looks very nice, closer inspection does reveal some areas of bodywork that will require attention in the future, small spots of bubbling and some cracks in the paintwork particularily under the drivers side windscreen...I have highlighted these areas in pictures. it polishes up very well, and has had new chrome bumpers and overriders, and replacement hubcaps.the windscreen has some scratching to the top, but is not cracked or dangerous. Inside is in very good condition, the seats are unusual as you will see, with an interesting pattern!, generally though in good order. The car has always been garaged when in my possession.
Mechanically the car starts promptly, and ticks over nicely, although is probably due a service in the near future, oil was changed 3000 miles ago. the gearbox is ok, but the change from 3rd down to 2nd can sometimes grate, and does need getting used to, the brakes were attended to at the MOT but I have noticed a slight clicking sound on braking, the brakes themselves work perfectly, although being drum brakes all round as anyone will know does need careful usage!!. The tyres were new all round about a year ago, and have only covered about 3000 miles since. If you need any more information please ask. this is a reluctant sale of a loved car but needs are such that it has to be sold at this time, I feel this will be a very enjoyable car for someone to own requiring small jobs to improve its present condition, which is anyway very good. I have set a fair buy it now price for the vehicle when set against similar cars,and will not be ending the auction early, it will run its course. Please, no zero feedback ratings, Please contact me if you would like to view the car which is kept in Devizes in Wiltshire, or if you need more info, I can be contacted via Ebay, or on 07703463625. Thank you and happy bidding!!...regards Philip
Update 24/7/2015
Forgot to mention that the car comes with a set of four 8 spoke Empi style wheels fitted with 185/65R15 tyres in good condition, these were the wheels on the car when I purchased it. I have pictured one of the wheels, but all 4 are in similar condition. regards Philip
