1959 Vw Bug Volkswagen Beetle California Dry Solid Bug No Rot All Og Pans,heat on 2040-cars
Princeton Junction, New Jersey, United States
You are bidding on a 1959 Volkswagen Beetle. This is a super solid car that was originally from California. It even still has a service sticker in the driver's side door jamb from a service shop in California!
This car has rust free, rot free original heater channels and floor pans in it. Save time and money not having to buy heater channels and pans, weld them in, and still never be as good as factory!
The interior is all original down to the factory blue paint, with some worn out slip on seat covers covering the original vinyl seat covers and horsehair padding. Headliner is gone, and the majority of the carpet and rubber floor mats are gone, some remnants remain.
The 36HP starts right up and runs like a sewing machine. Idles nice, with no exhaust leaks, taps, or knocks. Has a newer 6V battery.
The entire fuel system has been flushed out, including the humpback fuel tank.
The brake system has been completely overhauled using new wheel cylinders, master cylinders, shoes and hardware.
The original split case transaxle has some issues with 1st gear and reverse. You can forcefully get it into gear, but there is certainly an issue. I am told this is very common with these early split case transaxles. I can include an additional transaxle from a 1958 parts car, but it's condition is unknown. I was planning on having a later 60's transaxle rebuilt and put into the car. The car is not very driveable, but bolt-on parts are the easy part with these old VW's.
The car is sitting on 4 Coker Tire brand wide white wall radial tires with good life in them.
Has the original "H" apron in nice shape.
The front apron has been replaced back in the day, as well as the hood - however it still retains a correct 4 tab hood. The front fenders were never replaced, but repaired with bondo and could use replacement, or just leave them alone if you're going after the patina look. The car is sprayed in white paint from years and years back and has weathered and worn over time. It's possible the original blue paint can be uncovered with hard work and determination, if not, this car is an excellent candidate for a repaint as it's so solid. Doors show no signs of rust or rot, nor do the rear quarter panels, decklid, etc.
Roof shows no dents or dings, and the gutter channels are nice and straight.
Has the original rear "dimpled" fenders with snowflake tail lights.
I think the pictures do the talking for anything else I may have left out!
Car has a clean and clear NJ title.
Please contact me at any time at 917-533-2786 with any other questions you may have for this car.
I am shipping friendly and will gladly work with you on shipping, or you can come to my house and pick her up! She rolls perfectly with a towbar.
For sale locally and reserve the right to end auction if the right cash buyer shows up!

Just last week, when we brought you news of a new Volkswagen Golf variant out and testing in Europe, we had no idea we were being so literal with out description. For it seems that VW has every intention of calling its new Golf wagon, making its Geneva debut, the "Golf Variant."

Odd/interesting sobriquets taken as read then, there's a lot to like about this new small wagon from VW. The Variant will shed some 232 pounds in this generation, and will come to market with two efficient TDI engines. Volkswagen isn't giving us displacement figures for either yet, but we're told the diesels will come with outputs of 110 and 150 horsepower. The 110-hp TDI BlueMotion Varient will be good for a whopping 71.3 miles per gallon on the European cycle, when mated to the six-speed manual transmission.
The German automaker has brought along an all-wheel-drive 4Motion version of the Gold Variant to bow in Geneva, as well, and a natural gas-burning TGI BlueMotion is said to be "in the pipeline."
Reggae super-duper-star and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jimmy Cliff has been using music to send positive vibes out into the universe for decades now, so its no surprise that his message on behalf of Volkswagen is one of redemption.

Dubbed Sunny Side, this web-spot is VW's warmup of sorts for what promises to be another blockbuster year in the world of Super Bowl commercials. Without giving away the game, the euphonious commercial sees Cliff opening his arms and his heart to some YouTube 'celebrities' that might see courser treatment from the likes of Tosh.0, for instance. We can't help but be reminded of Coca-Cola's legendary 1971 Hilltop spot with the "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" lyric, too.
Enjoy the pre-Super Bowl VW spot below, and don't forget to pay it forward... your karma will thank you. For those of you that just can't get enough of commercial-making magic, we've included a "making-of" video, as well.
Volkswagen has been responsible for its fair share of witty, clever commercials. "Tiny Vader" might be the most popular, but somehow, we think this newest spot will find a big audience. VW delivers not so much a cover, but a reimagining, of 1980s Norwegian pop band A-ha's famous music video for "Take On Me."
The original opens with an animated motorcycle race, which is revealed to be part of a comic book. VW's version replaces the motorcycle with a Passat, which strikes us as an oddly sober choice when there are cars like the GTI and Beetle in VW's portfolio. But never mind that - take a look down below for the entire 46-second spot. For reference, we've also included the original music video. And if you aren't a fan of the musical stylings of A-ha, just think, VW's choice of 1980s music could have been much worse.
