Classic Insider Exclusive | Volkswagen 1303 Super Beetle #FORSALE
Originally designed as effective transport for the German masses, the Beetle emerged as an automotive success story after the Second World War, becoming popular throughout Europe, America and the rest of the world.
Like its contemporaries, the Mini, Citroën 2CV, Renault 4, and the Fiat 500, the Beetle has long outlasted predictions of its lifespan. It has been regarded as something of a "cult" car since its 1960's association with the hippie movement and 'surf culture', and the obvious attributes of its unique and quirky design along with its low price. Part of the Beetle’s cult status is attributed to it being one of a few cars with an accessible, air-cooled horizontally opposed engine, and the consequent ease of repair and modification, as opposed to more complex water-cooled engines. The original flat-four had fewer than 200 moving parts making it very easy to maintain.
The car offered here is a very special example of the legendary Volkswagen Beetle. Though millions of Beetles were produced, only a limited few can claim to be originally Hong Kong delivered with such low mileage, low number of owners (2 families), painstakingly preserved and lovingly maintained from new. This charming Red 1600cc "1303 Super Beetle" Coupe has relatively good paint and comes with a smart high-quality black interior and is powered by an extremely well maintained 1,585 cc overhead-valve flat four-cylinder engine. Fitted with a slick four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, it offers an enjoyable and very easy driving experience. This lovely Beetle is ready to be immediately enjoyed and plenty to offer its new owner.
