Description

Lot #647 - This untouched, still as-new and original Bug was traded back into the franchise VW dealer after traveling a mere 22,000 miles where it remained indoors on showroom display until recently. It's definitely a time capsule with collectible status that has forged its appearance and reputation in American lives and automotive history for generations. The Beetle Bug is a recognizable body style that brings smiles and attraction worldwide. It is powered by the worry-free and very reliable fuel-injected engine and finished in desirable Tuxedo Black with tan top and interior that all still shows as it did showroom new, even after almost 40 years. Factory books and manuals are included also. This 22,000 original-mile convertible has never seen abuse, repair or restoration.
