After much soul searching Ive decided that I should consider selling my beetle. It is a 1963 UK RHD Ragtop in ruby red. I have obtained the birth certificate which confirms it is a factory ragtop and the matching numbers/engine are all original and the information I have can demonstrate the current 87k mileage is genuine too.The Beetle is fitted with a number of rare accessories which include: perspex and chrome wind deflector, Volkswagen locking gear stick and ignition switch and Golde ragtop. As noted, the Golde ragtop roof was fitted from the factory making this a very rare UK car. The Beetles condition throughout is fantastic. For a car of its age and being a non-import it has survived remarkably well. I was informed that the car had minimal restoration work back in 1983, which consisted of a respray, carpet and headlining. All the panels are original Volkswagen including the floorpan sections and heater channels which still have plenty life left in them. Although the bodywork is really good it is not concours with a few small areas which could do with attention to make this a truly stunning vehicle. Other original features of the Beetle include: The seats and vinyl upholstery, door cards, interior parts: speedo, glovebox cardboard insert, steering wheel and the engine. The engine is confirmed as the original unit which the Beetle left the factory with. It has all of its original tinware alongside the original mechanical components, for example the solex carburettor.  The matching numbers are not just confirmed by the birth certificate but the amazing history file which contains the original service book and the original sales invoice from when it was purchased new in Tottenham, 1963. The file also contains M.O.T certificates, service receipts, parts receipts, concours mark sheets, Tax Disks etc. I do confess the preservation of the car will also be in part due to the Carseal applied from new (invoice included) although I do doubt that you can make a claim these days on the lifetime guarantee included with it!!! LIt had a full brake service just before I purchased it but since its purchase I have upgraded it to dual circuit brakes and added rear seatbelts for my children using only the factory attachment/anchor points. It still runs on its 6v system and I have upgraded the lights so other road users can see when you are when braking and turning!! I also purchased a new 6v Optima battery as the one on my campervan has been nothing short of brilliant.So in summary a really nice and quite rare car. Not 100% perfect but is in good condition overall and with a little work it would be an amazing piece of history. I do have a genuine reason for sale which Im happy to talk through with any interested party. In terms of price Id be looking for £12,400 or nearest offer for such a rare car with the history it has. If there is any interest then please do drop me a message and Ill try to answer your questions as quickly as possible and of course viewings are most welcome. I am based near to Lincoln.ThanksSteve
