Description VW 411LE 2 Door Sedan

For sale is my very rare 2 door VW411LE sedan, having attended various VW shows with it over the last few years it has often been the only one of it's type present. When was the last time you saw one in the metal?I've owned it since 2010 when I purchased it as an unfinished project. I had the car moved to Volksfarmers who carried all the required work to return it to the road 4 years later at great expense to myself, money I feel was worth spending to save such a rare vehicle and money I realise I won't make back from its sale.
Amongst the long list of jobs carried out to return the car to the road after being of the road for in excess of a decade was to remove all the rot that had set in from years of storage under a tarp. This was carried to a high standard using many parts from donor vehicles bfore a complete respray in its original Elm Green. The entire fuel system was overhauled, as was the brake system and electrics. The previous owner had fitted a glass sunroof in the 80s but the seals had vanished for this so I opted to fit a vinyl sunroof supplied from Paris Sunroofs.
Earlier this year I finally got fed up looking at the torn and cracked vinyl seat coverings so I went ahead and re-upholstered them myself using new black vinyl and a green tartan fabric, not a professional quality finish but far more pleasing to the eye than what was left of the original seat coverings. I also managed to source all the required rare chrome trim to fit to the car to return the exterior to a factory finish.   
The engine is a very strong, smoke free 1700cc running the original D Jetronic Fuel Injection which has been trouble free and reliable. The heating system originally had a petrol Eberspacer to supplement the fin free Type 4 heat exchangers, the Eberspacer still sits above the rear axle but is not plumbed or wired in and I have fitted later Type 2 heat exchangers to compensate for this so the cab does get heat in the winter. The front struts benefit from running modified Audi 80 inserts and BMW springs.
I have used the car as my daily ride to and from work since it has been roadworthy and enjoyed every minute of driving it, unfortunately both my wife and I also enjoy driving our Latebay as our family practical and fun vehicle. As this is in need of some TLC to keep it on the road for a few more years to come my 411 needs to go to finance this, an all to familiar story for owners of classic VWs.
