This is a left hand drive 1970 model with the wrap around indicator lights. It left the factory in December 1969 and was first registered in the USA on 1st January 1970. The car was registered in Anaheim, California and spent several years there. It was purchased by only its second owner in the early 90s who moved to Colorado. The owner put the car through an extensive cosmetic restoration from 1994-5 which is fully documented. The paint job was high quality and has held up well
The car has only been driven approximately 5000 miles since the restoration and still looks excellent.
All body and undersides are in excellent condition with no rust to floors/sills etc
I found the car in a VW main dealership in Phoenix Arizona where it had been a showroom queen for approx the last 10 years alongside a bus and beetle. There are some great YouTube vids of the car under Scottsdale VW. I imported the vehicle through Rinkens into Felixstowe early 2017. We have just completed a 2500 mile tour of Germany and have had two great summers with the car. It is a very practical tourer and year round daily drive.
Great runner and a joy to drive which really turns heads.
