1962 Volkswagen Beetle with 29,000 Original Miles

As the saying goes, they are only original once. Long after hippies and the “Me” generation got through with them, it’s almost impossible to find an original Volkswagen Beetle that has not been restored or rusted out to bits. But here’s a stunning 1962 with a scant 29,000 miles on the clock for sale in Arizona.

1962 Volkswagen Beetle 29,300 Original Miles

Bought in London England by a US Airman at VW Motors Limited. Had it shipped back to the States and it was driven less than 600 or so miles per year. This Special and Rare VW still retains its Original Paint and Interior…Yes, original all the way! This Bug has accumulated only 29,067 miles in its entire life. Take a look at the photos. If you’re looking for a once in a lifetime purchase of a VW for enjoyment or your collection…look no further. You may not find another one quite like this one. A storyboard with all the manuals, letters, registration, UK decal, purchase receipt, sales document, etc…Original OFL71 UK License Plates front and rear included. Also has the original Mohair Style headliner still intact and in great shape!
Absolutely no rust as the paint retains it’s original shine (unbelievable) Pans are like new! Interior is all original and has never been touched. The entire car for that matter has never been touched or taken apart. ALL ORIGINAL DRIVETRAIN. Let me stress the rare opportunity here folks! Take a look and make your best bid. Don’t lose this one to someone else!

Brian featured a 1965 Beetle two weeks ago. That particular car sold for $11,950, but was restored, had a 1,700 cc engine under the bonnet and was modified slightly. So is originality worth another $10,000? To the most rabid of air-cooled VW enthusiasts, possibly. In reality, I would suspect this car might pull about $17,000 to $20,000 at the maximum.

  1. The problem with a car like this is every second you drive it you lower its value – because it’s “original.”

    That’s the problem with buying original vs. restored for a car like this.

  2. Hmm – original? Why the “coolant” sticker? Obviously, “originally” these were all air-cooled with no need for coolant – no radiators. My ’62 certainly didn’t have a “coolant” sticker.
