1977 Volkswagen 1200 Beetle 69,825 (Not Warranted) £2916 + buyers premium


This Beetle was originally owned by Sir John Musgrove Eaton who gave it to his daughter, prolific local author and playwrite Angela Sewell/Eaton. She then gave the vehicle to the vendor in 2003. With its ragtop Mexican shell, this car is unique. It was in storage from 2003-2009 (SORN) but for the last 7 years it has been used everyday. There are no shortage of admirers of this vehicle that has been in two families for the last 36 years.

Auctioneers notes: Unique car in good condition with an electric roof similar to the fiat 500 convertible with a very realistic estimate
