Selling my Gulf Blue 1961 Convertible. It is clean titled as a convertible and is still the original pan. This is the last year of the early verts. It is not perfect, but is a sweet ride and a guaranteed head turner.

This convertible has had quite the life. At some point it was cut into a baja and has been painstakingly brought back to a beautiful car again. Lots of work has been done to this car and it was built to be enjoyed as a nice summer, sunday cruiser. I can imagine how fun it would be to roll this on Highway 1.

New pan halves have been welded in.
It has a 5" narrowed adjustable beam with custom shock towers that do not cut into the apron at all.
There are 3" drop plates in the rear.
4-tab hood
The tip of the hood has a little damage
Original German headlight assemblies and glass
The original Karmann badge.
New WW floor mats
New 62-67 gas tank installed, PLUS I have the original 61 only tank that goes with it.
Nice painted smoothies with original german caps.
All glass and window frames. Frames should be rechromed.
All seat frames are correct for a 61. It took me 6 months to source a correct 61 rear seat.

T- Handle shifter
Professionally rebuilt transmission
Newer rebuilt 1600 CC dual port motor with electric ignition and flame thrower coil (has an oil leak)

The Retrosound deck in the photos will be included with asking price, otherwise I will keep it. I had planned on running a 1200cc motor in this car, but I ended up selling it with another bug a while back. If you plan of running your own motor, I will keep it and reduce the price of the car by 500.

The rear view mirror accessory, suitcase speakers, sub and amp are not included with the sale.
