It is with a reluctant heart that I have to sell Bertie. My 1968 VW Beetle 1500 Semi Automatic. I am the 3rd owner and have had the car since 2006. But due to health issues and relocation I know it’s time my car had a new owner, one that can spend time keeping him fit and well.

In the last 2 years it has had a new dynamo fitted and the seals in the torque convertor replaced as well as a new fuel tank and various other repairs. The car has an authentic ratty appeal and honestly needs a couple of new wings and body work repairs. He has rust on both doors and on the right rear panel but I’ve had the right heater channel replaced and welding done in the boot cavity etc.. He runs well and up until last year I was using him on my daily run to work but as part of the journey now includes 10 miles along a single track road it is no longer practical or economical.  The only modification is a switch and pump for the washer bottle which was there when I bought the car. I had the window seals replaced 2 years ago which were originally the chrome ones. I had the upper left ball joint replaced last year and bought the right ones too so there are a spares. The clutch plate was replaced when I bought him in 2006. I still have the automatic badge for the boot but it was held on with a pencil and string so a garage removed it but it could be repaired.

I was told a few years ago that there are only 50 semi-automatics left on the road. It’s is a unique and fun car to drive.

The price reflects the condition. Please email me at  or call me & leave me a message on 07833338612 to ask any other questions and to arrange a viewing. Plus I have more photos but struggled to upload them doh!
