'67 Sparkäfer Ultramarine Blue Standard Original UK Export VW Beetle
Recently at Limebug we've been hard at work nut and bolt restoring a lovely Ultramarine Blue 1967 1200 Sparkäfer back to its original factory standard.
Check out a few pictures before and after we undertook surgery.
We had the car sat around looking sorry for itself for approximately 9 years and decided it was high time for it to be returned to its former glory!
From a wreck to a fully built car ready for MOT in 4 months, the little Blue beetle had its debut at Volksworld 2018 and looked right at home with it's fresh shiny paintwork, fully restored engine / gearbox / suspension and brakes and shiny new chrome bumpers and hub caps to finish her off.
Beside all the up to date new parts we still wanted to retain the non-deluxe options the car came with as standard.
To name a few of these differences are no chrome dash trim, no door contact pins, standard steering wheel which doesn't have a chrome horn ring, no radio, blanked off antenna, 1200 original Headliner, Driver side only sun visor and painted wiper arms.
The car retains its original matching numbers engine/ gearbox / pan and body making this a lovely little piece of history with many more years of fun to be had.
