Offered on a 3 day NO RESERVE auction is a 1966 VW Beetle stored for the last 39 years in a garage. Last registered in Connecticut in 1978. Clear clean Connecticut Title from 1974 when the previous owner purchased the car from his father.
1966 is a unique year for the Beetle. Only year for the 1300cc engine. Horsepower up from 40hp to 50hp at 4600 rpm. Last year for the 6 volt electrical system. Considered by many VW collectors to be the best year. Small bumpers, covered headlights and the sportiest engine supplied by VW in the Beetle. The color is called See Blau (Sea Blue code L360), a great period color.
Stored in a detached garage for almost 4 decades, this Beetle does need some help. Rust is evident in areas under the dash, in the side rocker by the driver's seat and in the trunk as shown in the photo. Other areas also. Some of the usual spots like the battery box and spare tire well appear solid. Steering column needs to be reattached to the dash. Rust there also. If you desire the original survivor look, the good news is most of the rust is not in areas visible on the exterior.
This car does not run. It will need to be towed or trailered. The original bias ply tires from 1978 still hold air but are not safe to tow or drive on. Should be transported by flatbed or trailer.Engine will turn if you push the car in gear. Mice have eaten some wires (there aren't many wires on this car). Odor de Mouse in the car. Needs to be pressure washed and cleaned inside and out. We have made no attempt to get the car to run. Needs to be completely gone thru before anyone uses the car.
This is a no reserve auction so the high bidder gets to buy the car.
