For many car fans, the 1200 was the definitive Beetle.
This car has a 2 door saloon (sedan) body style.
4 cylinder petrol engine,
40 bhp
A 4 speed manual gearbox,
rear wheel drive 
12 Volt System
The factory fitted sunroof is in excellent condition, and its mechanism works smoothly.
Owned for the last 22 years by same owner, unmodified Beetle.
Years MOT valid, tax exempt.
No longer able to store under cover or drive it as much as I should so time to pass the bug on to another custodian to enjoy.
Drives extremely well, all parts in good working order no alterations, just the cosmetics that are letting it down nowadays.
Brief history- Cuwbic (car’s adopted name) was purchased in 1995 or there about’s as my first car, so I can tell you absolutely everything about it since then.
Cuwbic has covered 25,750 miles (low mileage in 20+ years) in that time and is currently running on a reconditioned engine, the original engine required some work from what I gathered from the previous owner so he replaced it (pre 1995). The engine runs really well, (I’ve maintained it myself mostly) replacing minor parts where required.

The chassis and body have never been separated, only major works have been the heater channels- replaced on both sides.

All of the mechanicals are in good order, new brakes, fuel line & tank, various seals and bearings have been replaced/ updated last year.
Resprayed in early 2000, paintwork currently in good but aging condition, some minor paint blistering in isolated regions, small damaged area on rear wing noted.

The interior rear seat, carpets, headliner is good condition, front seats need replacement or renovating though.

She’s in good nick for a 50 year young motor, but need a new owner who has the time to bring her back up to spec.
