Lot details
Registration No: VVV866L
Chassis No: 1332258947
Mot Expiry: June 2014

First UK registered on 10th January 1973, a recent HPi check has revealed that chassis 1332258947 was the subject of an insurance total loss payment some twenty years later. Details of the claim are unknown but the damage is presumed to have been readily repairable because the VW entered the current ownership via the November 2009 Bonhams Harrogate auction on the understanding that it had been "treated to a `ground upwards', no expense spared restoration in 2000, since when it has covered some 12,000-or-so miles. Improvements made at that time include fitting a new 1600cc engine (replacing the original 1300cc unit), rack-and-pinion steering, EPI alloy wheels and radial tyres, while the chassis received full undersealing". Driven 55 miles over the last four years and reportedly "kept garaged but run on a regular basis", this Cabriolet is rated by the vendor as being in "good" (bodywork, paintwork, interior trim) or "very good" (engine, gearbox) condition.
