TNN288L 

1973 Beetle 

Registered 2/3/1973  and I calculate that it was built December 1972

Purchased November 2013

He is 40 years old 

What I know so far... 

w so far...

Originally from Isle of Man... Came over in 1978 and given a T plate...

2 Registered owners on V5.

I dont know of the first is the owner from IOM?

The guy I got it from was the owners son. The owner bought it in 1986 and hardly used it. He is in his 90's now.

It was given the age related plate in 1998

I was put onto it buy some good friends..

It had just under 49550 miles on the clock when I picked it up...

It wasnt in a barn.

It has got 2 weeks MOT ...

Needs a couple of small welds to make solid, but not for an MOT.

The first MOT I have is from 1994 when it was on 46804 miles.. so 2750 miles in 19 years... thats not a lot...

Its a lovley car, but has been played with a litle - it has had 3 wings and most of it painted...

The doors fit as they should and it doesnt appear to have been crashed... it drives as you would expect :)

It needs to tidying and sorting.

Aparantly at one point the whol thing was covered in wax oil?


I've found and fitted a genuine VW Exhaust today and fitted new fuel lines..

Looking forward to getting it past 50000 miles. - See more at: http://forums.pre67vw.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=56219#post56219

2 Owners from new on The V5

The service book is fully stamped.

Has been standing since 1997

It is VW Kasan Rot (Red)

I was put onto it by a good friend as some one who will save it...  

No MOT or Tax (Obviously). 

..Needs quite a chunk of welding and brakes to get an MOT.

There are some horrible welds to the spare wheel well.

Its done about 130000 miles and is on a recon engine - the engine has new fuel lines and fuel and is now up and running and sounds sweet.
