1961 Ragtop beetle project with loads of potential


BBT friend of Da Houze Matthew Kenney from Paso Robles California owned this car since 1980, he used it as his daily driver till 1997 just about everywhere! The body became too dangerous to drive so he searched another body, took it all apart and never brought it back together. The body is an all correct 1961 model year that Matthew got as a victim of a kit car build that used it's chassis for some fiberglass POS.

No rust anywhere.

Matthew collected all correct body parts over the year (all factory VW) with the latest acquired at the Kelly park show in 2014 (two primo front fenders of the correct year).

The chassis is done with new pan halves, all new German brakes including all hard and soft lines

Front end is all new adjustable (avis adjusters) new king and link, tie rods and steering box.

All new German cables with the center clutch tube mount re-welded.

Rebuilt transmission, all new factory VW mounts. The whole chassis is primed/painted low gloss black, bottom is undercoated. A donor 1200cc engine was loose mounted to make the car complete save the gauges and wire harness.

All seat frames are included and a set of 5 of the correct wheels.

Body is an original factory ragtop, has all the parts for the ragtop to make it work including the handle.

Original color is Ruby Red,

We have to mention I have the correct 61 only gas tank for it as well.

Isn’t a cool ragtop Beetle that spend most of its life in California everybody’s dream?
