The current owners of this Guinea blue Beetle were the lucky recipients of it from the Grand Charity Raffle at the annual VW Festival at Harewood House in 2014. Donated by the previous owner earlier in 2014, restoration work was undertaken by the Herbie Hospital in Leeds. It benefitted from some structural repairs, new wings and panels and a full re‑spray. The interior was fitted with a new black vinyl, original style basket weave seat covers and original style door cars. New inertia reel seatbelts have been fitted. The car retains it's original 1,500cc engine (H series), which is in good condition and starts and runs well. A new clutch was fitted in 2014 and the gear changes are described as smooth. The vendors have dry stored the car, under a dust cover, throughout their ownership and have covered less than 2,000 miles since. They have decided to sell as they were already the owners of a similar car and since 2017 this car has hardly moved at all. It would benefit from some recommissioning due to it's lack of use. The history file includes a copy of the press article from VW Festival, recent MoTs to 2015 when last issued and some receipts dating from 2010 and 2014. The vendors have provided a detailed information sheet on the works undertaken. The mileage is recorded at 62,000.
