1964 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 1200 SEDAN
Delivered new on the 2nd of November 1964 by the Barker Motor Company of 684 Pacific Highway Killara, Sydney NSW "North Shore's leading Volkswagen Dealers" at the time. The original invoice is to hand and the cost at delivery was 839 pounds! The original lady owner was a very fastidious owner and we now have a very original Beetle with an amazing paper record of its early years.
The current owner is, he believes, the 4th owner of this amazingly original Beetle which has still a lot of original paint and a very tidy and original interior. It has only completed just over 32,000 miles.
He bought the car in 2017 for sentimental reasons, as his grandfather migrated from Austria in the late 50's and drove a family of 6 in a similar Beetle across the Nullarbor to settle here in Adelaide.
Powered by a 1200cc 4 cylinder air cooled engine, it was rated when new at 29.8Kw and 88Nm of power and torque, delivering this energy to the rear wheels via a 4 speed manual gearbox. Forget the 0-100kph times, the car was expected to exceed 100kph, but probably not with that family of 6 on board!
This dear little Beetle has been loved and treasured by it's four owners and is now looking for another owner to do the same.
