1971 Marina Blue Bug, Lovely car

Having driven this beautiful bug almost daily for the last 12 years, I am sad to be selling my first ever car. I'd love it to go to someone who will enjoy and look after it as much as I have. Unfortunately, I haven't anywhere to store it or I would keep hold of it, I'm doing a lot more mileage now and it's not fair on the old girl.

She has about 160,000 genuine miles on the clock, but the engine is only 3 years old, custom built by Stefan at Manchester Aircooled as a 1600 petrol, twin port, 8-spoke lightened flywheel and she goes like the clappers. Naturally for a 40 year old aircooled VW, she can be a bit heavy on petrol but drive carefully and she isn't that bad, I got from Manchester to Andoversford (near Cheltenham) to Stroud and back to Manchester on one tank of petrol last year so all-told fairly good for a classic!

I've put fibreglass wings on her to reduce rusting and the front ones are pre-65 with the angled headlamps and chrome eyelids.

Over the years I've spent lots on her and the paintwork and chassis are in really good condition.

The front is lowered on an adjustable suspension beam, if you want it a bit further down, or indeed up and the ride quality is pretty sweet. I also modified an older-style steering wheel to replace the original one and because it is larger, it give a better feel to the steering and handling control.

I recently (February) re-covered all the interior seats and the carpet is in really good shape too.

Other features include front & rear screen de-misters, immobiliser and a stereo with speaker pods for the front footwells ready to fit, just haven't got round to installing it yet!

Road tax is of course FREE and insurance is cheap. I have lots of the service history, everything from my ownership & a lot from the previous owners.

Any questions please ask, I have more pictures or contact me on 07884187991 to arrange a viewing.
