1972 Volkswagen Beetle 1200 1.2


Reliable shiny love


Battery dead after leaving A/C on at my wedding dinner.

Major head-on accident... lovingly repaired at large cost to the 3rd party.

Carpets, seats, linings, renewed so VW is like new.

General Comments:

Exceedingly reliable & quiet (this one).

Old owner never drove above 50 kph for 25 years.

Paintwork and body and engine maintained like new. Easy in Singapore since mechanics are cheap.

Sold for US$15,000 (the going rate in Singapore).

The Singapore COE is killing the new owner.

A/C works very well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
