Sellers original description:
VW Beetle The Last Beetle ever made for the U.K. market! No. 300 of 300 of the Limited Edition.
SKT953S, finished in Silver Metallic. This car is of historical interest and has a very interesting provenance. Previous owner won the car in a raffle for the princely sum of £1 ! He stored the car away in 1978 until 1986 when the car only had 25 miles on the clock. The last owner then purchased the car and removed the "new" carpets and stored them away in a suitcase. The car then did an average of 1,000 miles per annum and the oil has been changed approximately every 500 miles. Masses of service history, old MOT certificates to trace the mileage and lots of old tax discs and magazine articles. The plaque bearing the Number: 300, making this THE last one produced for the U.K. market of the last 300. No.1 was kept by the factory for their museum in Germany. The car has had seat covers on for most of it's life. Lots of chrome replaced with the quality German items. Far too much to list on this incredible vehicle.
