Vehicle Story

This 1969 Volkswagen Beetle is the recipient of a recently-finished cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment, which included a professional respray, replacement running boards, refurbished interior, and a replacement 1.5-liter flat-4 paired with a 4-speed manual transaxle. It was originally sold in Portland, Oregon, and has remained in the Pacific Northwest since new. Finished in Savannah Beige over a brown vinyl interior, this Beetle is now offered with an owner's manual, a cover, a spare radio, and a clear Washington title in the seller’s name.

This Beetle's refurbishment was completed in March 2021 and is reported to have retained its original body panels, trunk lid, and fenders. A professional respray in the car's original Savannah Beige paint was applied, all rubber, seals, and side mirrors were replaced, the door and window hardware was refinished, and new running boards from Wolfsburg West were installed. The car has factory chrome bumpers, window trim, and an accessory luggage rack installed on the rooftop.

Aftermarket black-painted 15” EMPI-style 8-spoke steel wheels are wrapped in blackwall radial tires.

The interior was completely redone and is fitted with bucket seats from a 1967 Beetle that were reupholstered in brown vinyl with beige custom piping, along with matching replacement door panels, headliner, dash, sun visors, and carpet. The interior has been sound-deadened, and the seller indicates that all switches and controls work as designed.

Instrumentation is framed by a 2-spoke steering wheel and consists of a 90-mph speedometer and an inset fuel gauge. The 5-digit mechanical odometer reads 84k miles, though true chassis and current engine mileage are unknown.

The rear-mounted 1.5-liter flat-4 is a replacement from a 1967 Beetle. The seller states that it runs well and does not smoke. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transaxle and a floor-mounted shift lever.

Additional undercarriage photos can be found in the gallery. 

The sale includes an owner’s manual, a car cover, a jack and toolkit, an older Washington license plate, and the car’s original, nonfunctional AM radio.

@Buggers – Any idea how much life is left in the tires? Thanks ...

I would say 90+%....the Empi's and tires were put on my daughter's car a year ago when it was redone and then she wanted a stock look...went back to stock rims/tires.....her car is stored with my other collection and she drives it couple times a year when she visits...
