Easton Lions Auction Car 2018-1972 Volkswagen VW Beetle Convertible - Refurbished

1972 VW Beetle Car up for bid - Easton Lions Charity Auction 2018

The entire body has been repainted, seats reupholstered, convertible top replaced. Has been living in arid Colorado; much kinder to cars than the Northeast weather.   The tires have less than 10,000 miles of wear.  The engine was just inspected and new carburetor, fuel filter, and fuel gauge were installed. Bottles of fuel additive, a car cover, the Club lock and front seat covers will come with this car. This 1972 VW Beetle Convertible has passed the Massachusetts inspection test.

Some quirky things to note: Driver's door lock is "sticky" and, sometimes, will not unlock. The driver's seat is stuck in the furthest position. The window handle on the rear driver's side is missing.

More information will be posted soon on our other early items.
