Some background...perhaps there is someone knowledgeable on the forum that can assist?

Purchased in 1964 by my Granny as a demo model in PTA - pale blue in colour.

This car is not restored, it is the way it was back in 64. Everything is still original and in tact.

I should then perhaps say that is is in excellent condition, considering that it is 54 years old.

Licences, all up too date. Original motor etc.

Starts the way a beetle starts, and runs like a beetle.

Any ideas on value?

Only basic info being shared here, so one would only comment by making a basic call. No photos of exterior or interior. But judging by your text only, maybe R16k.

Uhhmmm, spoke to a company in CT selling a restored, number matching 1963 for R175k. They felt, since mine is number matching and unrestored, I could look at R200k.

If you got an old split window in good condition you could get close to 5 mil in Europe.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Ok. So got hold of the VW owner forum for Beetles. It is indeed worth a fair amount of money.

Suggest you guys hang on to those SFA's for another 40 years or so and stop modifying them.

Well, I haven't advertised it yet but have three offers on the table this morning. Best one so far is R85k.

Good thing I didn't listen to Rebel...
