FOR SALE
An incredible UK RHD 1960 Volkswagen Beetle Sedan known as angus_the_beetle.

EQUIPMENT
Chrome window trim, chrome bumpers, colour coded sill panels, chrome drivers door mirror, chrome bonnet line and side trims, padded sun visors, self-cancelling indicators, front passenger grab handle, windshield washer, glove box, door pockets, chrome rear view mirror. Accessories; Seat belts, tool kit, Nardi Classic steering wheel, LED rear light upgrade, cigar lighter, spare wheel mounted tool kit, Pioneer DAB CD player with 600 watt amplifier.

EXTERIOR
Finished in its factory produced colour of Gulf Blue, (L-390), there is proven excellence with numerous awards including its first outing after detailed works in 2017 at the Alive & V-Dubbin Festival where it took three awards including Best Paint, Visitors Choice and Car of the Show! A desirable sloping headlight model with amazing attention detail such as the 1960 only teardrop washer jet and quality mirror reflective chrome. A few tasteful improvements such as LED rear lights still housed in their snowflake rear lenses and front indicators mounted below the front bumper to maintain the oval smoothie look work great. A first for the new 61 Spec 40bhp model were Satin Blue running boards and these have been retained with a slightly lower stance achieved on Sway-A-Way front beam adjusters and the rear torsion bar turned down, easily reversed. Such is the amazing show appeal of this car it even has its own Instagram Page angus_the_beetle with 1,950 Followers and counting!

INTERIOR
Prepared to be wowed with an interior perfect in appearance and quality fitment throughout. Attention to detail will be missed by most with even the door opener and window winder positioned exactly when closed to mimic factory specification! Expensive Newton Commercial Beetle carpets are protected by rubber over mats and a quality Grey mohair headlining looks stunning. Originality seekers will note the obvious and new for 61 Spec cars, 90mph speedometer, but may miss the under bonnet factory card board liner, (protected by an overlaid replacement), hiding the original production number chalked in yellow underneath. A quality wooden Nardi Classic Steering Wheel with polished spokes and a discreet sound system has been installed. Very few classic cars meet the standards set by this remarkable example.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With traceable history from new this is a rare matching numbers car with the factory four cylinder horizontally opposed rear air cooled engine of 1192cc still fitted. Producing 40bhp at 3900rpm, (up from the 36bhp of the earlier engine), it even retains the Solex downdraft carburettor 28 PICT with automatic choke to enable a top speed of 72mph. With a full rebuild, copious invoices and show winning appearance this engine performs and looks stunning. All engine tinware has been powder coated and everything is detailed. The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox of single plate dry clutch type operates perfectly offering light and precise progression throughout the range.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Five pristine pressed steel wheels painted in original White L-87 and Gulf Blue L-390 with Gloss Black to the rear are shod in premium Continental Contact 165/80 R15 tyres all-round. The spare wheel houses a near impossible to source metal VW circular case complete with tools and a restored VW jack and handle painted in correct colours is present. Single circuit braking system with drums all-round offer modest stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
A spectacular history. Built in June 1960 as a RHD UK model with the new 40bhp engine, this is a matching numbers example. Purchased by Mr McKechnie from the original owner in 1978 with sub 20,000 miles for his wife Margaret. She refused to drive the car due to poor rear visibility and it remained virtually unused but carefully garaged before selling the car to their son in 1991. He remained the custodian until 2015 meaning this prime VW was owned by the same family for 37 years! Enthusiast owned by three keepers since, one of which being classic car fanatic Mr Jamie Stephens, embarking on a meticulous and painstaking restoration investing 100s of hours with invoices totalling thousands. Enjoying the show circuit with awards to prove the high standard and even having its own Instagam Page, (Click here: https://www.instagram.com/angus_the_beetle), this really is an exception to the normal offerings. Mr Stephens made the difficult decision to sell the car only to buy a lifelong dream classic, a Ford Escort Mk2 RS Mexico. Very cool, immaculate and wanting for nothing.

MOT January 2021, HPI Clear.
