Isn’t this wonderful!  I love happy people, and the car isn’t too bad either.  This is the receiver of the gift of the restored ’71 Beetle.  I worked with the husband via email only while the family was living in another country for a year.  He contacted me with the plan of a birthday gift, we discussed which Beetle was the best, I located one that was a good place to start for a restoration project and then did everything just the way she wanted it.  The project went without a hitch, everything came in on budget and the car got delivered to its east coast destination on the expected date.

Hey, that isn’t a ’71 dash!  The customer liked the look of the earlier style steel dash, and wanted the high back seats for safety so when I came across a ’71 it seemed like smoothing the dash was the right thing to do.

The interior of this VW got completely restored with German made materials.  The car was pretty rust-free, but the right floor was nasty under the battery as you might expect so we replaced that.

The color is from an early Porsche color, Blutorange.  Very becoming for this Beetle.
