A friend of mine has recently extracted his grandfathers Bug from a barn in Orange County in Southern California. It has 48,000 original miles and was stored in the barn for 30+ years. It was parked in running condition when the grandfather could no longer drive. I have looked at the car and it appears to be very original.

He has been doing a lot of cleaning, lubing and buffing. The motor has been started and runs nicely.

I'd like to share this remarkable car with you.

The kind of dash we like to see in an old bug.

All four door panels look like this.

No rips or holes in the headliner, just a bit of staining.

The rear seat is excellent along with the dash wire cover and trunk liner.

The front seat could be restitched.
