Vehicle Overview

Ended on Bring a Trailer Auctions : 1962 Volkswagen Beetle

This 1962 Volkswagen Beetle was acquired by the current owner in 1997 and was subsequently refurbished, with work including a repaint in turquoise, a 12-volt electrical conversion, installing Firestone whitewall tires, and replacing the sunroof cover, spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor, wiring harness, carburetor, and fuel and brake-system components. Power is from a 1.2-liter flat-four paired with a four-speed manual transaxle, and equipment includes chrome bumpers, running boards, rear mud flaps, beige vinyl upholstery, and a spare wheel-mounted tool kit. This Beetle is now offered on dealer consignment with a Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen Zertifikat, one door key, one ignition key, a California black license plate, and a clean California title in the owner’s name.

The car was refinished, reportedly in the original turquoise (L380), and it features a sunroof with a matching vinyl cover, running boards, Volkswagen-branded rear mud flaps, and chrome bumpers and trim. The windshield wipers are disconnected and retain a six-volt wiper motor, and the rear fenders were repainted more recently than the rest of the body.

Two-tone 15? wheels have chromed hubcaps and are mounted with Firestone Gum Dipped whitewall tires. The selling dealer reports that the brake master cylinder and shoes were replaced during the refurbishment.

The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench trimmed in beige vinyl along with two-tone door panels, gray carpets, and a body-color dashboard. Equipment includes rubber floor mats, a glovebox, vent windows, and a driver-door storage pouch. The seat frames were reportedly powder-coated during the refurbishment.

The two-spoke steering wheel features a chromed horn ring and frames a replacement 90-mph speedometer and a fuel-level gauge. The five-digit odometer shows 52k miles, and total mileage is unknown.

The spare wheel is mounted with an older tire and houses an aftermarket tool kit underneath a hinged cover.

The 1.2-liter flat-four sends power to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle. Work completed during the refurbishment is said to have included a 12-volt conversion and replacing the spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor, wiring harness, carburetor, fuel pump, and fuel lines.

Engine stamping 6229034 is shown above and matches the engine number shown on the Volkswagen Zertifikat.

The Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen Zertifikat lists factory colors, options, and a build date of November 10, 1961.
