Rare & Beautiful 1961 Volkswagen Beetle Ragtop Sedan
New to our Pleasanton showroom is this highly impressive 1961 Volkswagen Beetle Ragtop 2 Door Sedan with excellent mint green exterior paint, beautiful chrome and a stunning white vinyl interior. This highly original example features a 1200cc four cylinder engine under the hood with a four speed manual transmission, plus a factory bamboo interior tray, new carpeting, high end upgraded felt headliner, and a glove compartment-mounted stereo system. This example is in outstanding overall condition as well as an older restoration that’s been maintained at the highest possible levels. It must be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
Highly Original with No Signs of Prior Cosmetic Damage
This 1961 Volkswagen Beetle appears to be a highly original lifetime California classic and the current owner was drawn to it since he did not see any indications of prior front end damage or repairs (which are very uncommon in these examples). The exterior body is close to flawless with laser straight lines, a factory Karmann badge on trunk, original turn signals and excellent interior/exterior paint. We were informed that this example was restored by the 3rd lifetime owner over a decade ago and it was kept as original as possible during the process.
Additionally, this 1961 Volkswagen Beetle Sedan drives like a much newer classic with nice acceleration and dependable handling. We were informed that the 1200cc engine was modified during the restoration to deliver more power/performance and it still runs strong today. This is literally one of the most pristine examples we’ve ever seen and the asking price is likely too conservative.
One of the Most Prestigious Examples Nationwide
Overall, this 1961 Volkswagen Beetle Ragtop Sedan is an outstanding, ultra-rare example that would make an excellent addition to any serious collection. You will not find a more stellar classic anywhere on the open market because it simply does not exist; come see this beautiful Beetle today! For more information about this vehicle, visit our Pleasanton, California showroom, give us a call at 925-484-2262, or email us at Sales@SpecialtySales.com. Be sure to mention Stock # P10513 as well.
Legal Disclosures: Specialty Sales Classics has advertised and sold thousands of classic cars since our founding in 1978. We strongly encourage any and all buyers who are unable to view the vehicle in-person to perform a Pre-Purchase Inspection (by an independent party of their choosing) prior to the purchase. Given the age of many of our vehicles, it is extremely difficult to adequately describe all aspects of each vehicles condition in the limited space available and we have learned that these Pre-Purchase Inspections are helpful to all parties involved.
The information presented for this vehicle is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed as a basis of purchase. The Buyer should make a thorough, independent inspection and investigation of the vehicle prior to purchase.
