The Beetle is a true icon of 20th Century motoring and occupies a significant position in the minds and hearts of drivers and enthusiasts across the globe. It is the longest-running and most manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world with over 21 million cars produced between 1938 and 2003. The '1300' model was launched in 1966 and provided the biggest one-time jump in power output - by a whopping 25% - to 50bhp. The 1960's brought great strides in motorway development and Volkswagen's competitors were building ever faster cars to cover the tarmac. The '1300' was fundamental in ensuring that the Beetle was able to keep up with the modern pace. With tighter gearing and tuned for higher rpm, the nimble acceleration of the '1300' was also more than a match for the later models in the form of the 1500 & 1600 and these characteristics have made the '1300' one of the most nostalgic and desired classic Beetle incarnations.

First registered on the 13th September 1972 this very original Beetle 1300 still retains the original Wolfsburg factory interior, engine and even the steel pressed wheels have all of the centres and nut caps. We are informed mechanically and electrically, everything is in good order, is an instant starter hot or cold and runs very well. The bodywork generally is solid with all steel wings. Although the underside is also good, the car has had an older restoration and blemishes now show. Having both sets of original keys, Bilstien jack, Blaupunkt radio, owner's handbook and Volkswagen stamped service book, this car has pedigree many Beetles lost years ago. It has covered just under 92,000 genuine miles in 45 years. Before the current owner, it was family owned (It had 21 main dealer stamps in the 1970's and 80's) and has three former keepers. The previous owner said the lady who was the second registered keeper asked the vendor to call the car 'Lilly'. A fantastic proposition for somebody wanting a tax exempt classic with an MoT test certificate valid until 2018. Ready to be enjoyed for the forthcoming summer months.
