More About this Item


Description

This pretty Beetle with its construction year 1973 was delivered to its first owner by AMAG Zurich on the 20th December 1972. As shown in the documentation, the VW was taken over by a lady on the 8th February 1974, again through AMAG in Zurich. She remained faithful to her Beetle for the next 47 years. In February 2021 the car was finally taken over by its last keeper and he apparently only added another 300 kilometres to the 54’500 kilometres currently shown. The car has a complete service booklet, and the emission control documents available would indicate the mileage to be correct. The coachwork was repainted a number of years ago in its original colour, otherwise the Beetle is in a very good and well-maintained original condition and will be sold with the original service booklet, the original diagnose punch card and the original owner’s manual. The last Veteran MOT was completed around 1’000 kilometres ago in February 2018.
Deutsch: Dieser hübsche Käfer mit Modelljahr 1973 wurde am 20. Dezember 1972 durch die AMAG in Zürich an den Erstbesitzer ausgeliefert. Wie die Unterlagen zeigen, wurde der VW am 8. Februar 1974 – ebenfalls bei AMAG in Zürich – durch eine Dame übernommen, welche ihrem Käfer offensichtlich für 47 Jahre die Treue hielt. Im Februar 2021 wurde der Wagen schliesslich vom dritten und bisher letzten Halter übernommen, welcher wohl nur rund 300 Kilometer damit zurückgelegt hat, bevor er ihn im September des Jahres wieder abmeldete. Aktuell hat der Käfer erst knapp 54‘500 Kilometer gefahren, welche durch das lückenlose Serviceheft und die vorhanden Abgasdokumente absolut nachvollziehbar sind. Die Karosserie erhielt vor einigen Jahren eine Neulackierung in Originalfarbe, ansonsten ist der Käfer in sehr gutem und gepflegtem Originalzustand und wird mit dem originalen Serviceheft, der originalen Diagnose-Lochkarte sowie der originalen Betriebsanleitung an einen neuen Besitzer übergeben. Die letzte MFK als Veteranenfahrzeug erfolgte vor rund 1‘000 Kilometern (!) im Februar 2018.
Français: Cette jolie Coccinelle avec son année de construction 1973 a été livrée à son premier propriétaire par AMAG Zurich le 20 décembre 1972. Comme le montre la documentation, la VW a été reprise par une dame le 8 février 1974, toujours par l‘intermédiaire d‘AMAG à Zurich. Elle est restée fidèle à sa Coccinelle pendant les 47 années suivantes. En février 2021, la voiture a finalement été reprise par son dernier propriétaire, qui n‘a apparemment ajouté que 300 kilomètres supplémentaires avant de l‘abandonner en septembre de la même année. Actuellement, la Coccinelle n‘a parcouru que 54‘500 kilomètres, dispose d‘un carnet d‘entretien complet, et les documents de contrôle des émissions disponibles montrent que le kilométrage est correct. La carrosserie a été repeinte il y a quelques années dans sa couleur d‘origine, sinon la Coccinelle est dans un très bon état d‘origine bien entretenu et sera vendue avec le carnet d‘entretien d‘origine, la carte de diagnostic perforée d‘origine et le manuel d‘utilisation original. La dernière expertise vétéran a été effectuée il y a environ 1‘000 kilomètres (!) en février 2018.
