Description VW Baja Beetle 1960 project car

I had always wanted a Baja Beetle so when this one came up I grabbed it.  Now, a couple of years later all I have done is drop the motor out and collect a few extra parts.
OK, the Baja conversion is a bit rough at this stage but it will not take much to neaten that up.  Generally speaking the body is tidy and straight.  There is a little bit of rust in some of the corners but nothing scary.  The paint is OK but has spots all over it that I think is sap from a tree nearby - the spots were not on it when I got it and do come off but it will take a bit of effort.
Interior is sparse.  Prior to my ownership someone stripped most of the lining out and painted it black - it looks OK but if you want all the standard trim it is not there.  It has a neat little sports steering wheel.
We did get the motor going by towing the car but it is clearly tired.  I am not certain but I assume it is a 1300cc and it has a 12 volt alternator conversion.  I dropped it out in preparation for doing an overhaul but all it has done is sit on my bench ever since.  The gearbox seemed fine for the short while we had it running.
All tyres need replacing as they are lacking in tread.  There is a spare set of wide steel wheels in the car too.
The car was last registered in 2001 and I have the papers so there should be no problem re-registering it.
I apologise if I have missed something. 
There is a lot of potential in this little car and with a bit of work you will have one of the icons of motoring.
Basically this is an extremely good base to start from if
you want a fun car at the end. 
I love this car and considered all sorts of ideas to enable
me to keep it but I don’t have the time or space so it is better that it goes
to someone else and gets the attention it deserves.
I have listed it as pick up only but if you wish to have it transported somewhere please contact me and we will see what we can work out.  I may be able to deliver it or get it to a transporter of your choice.
Thanks for looking.
