1500CC, SHORT SHIFTER, CLEAN BRAZILIAN BEETLE, HIGH-QUALITY DRIVER, CLASSIC VW!

HIGHLIGHTS: Nicely preserved and desirable classic 1970 VW Beetle! Super clean vintage VW ready for a new caretaker!

We know what you're thinking: that looks older than a 1970 model! This is a South American-spec Beetle, which has been legally imported to the US and carries a clean North Carolina title. South American VWs, for those that don't know, typically have some design variances from North American models of the same year.

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Beetle is in incredible condition, and shows extremely well. The body is very straight, and really shows the level of care this car has received over the years. Even the underside is in nice condition, which is no small feat for a classic Beetle! This car appears to be an older restoration, and shows very nicely.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Beetle looks to have received a repaint in years past, but still shows nicely. While there are some minor paint defects to be found, as shown in the photos, overall the paint is in great condition and perfect for a high-quality driver like this.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Finished in dark leather, the interior is a great contrast to the white exterior. The leather is in nice condition, showing only normal wear and tear. Equipped with a short-throw shifter from Runner, the shifts in this Beetle are clean and crisp—totally the opposite of whatever you remember it being like in the '70s!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits a 1500cc VW engine which is an upgrade from the 1300cc engine this car came with originally. This Beetle runs like a champ, and sounds just great! If you're looking for something to buy today and take to a car show tomorrow, this just might be the car for you.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The quirky South American anomalies and the great overall condition!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're dead-set on a German built VW, this is not the car for you.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The key does not operate the door locks.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any VW enthusiast looking for a clean Beetle!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300.
