1978 Volkswagen Beetle 1300

This Example

Very original, unrestored 1300 Beetle currently on its second owner (who bought it from the original owner in 2011). Door pillars, skins and pan in very good, rust-free condition. Surface rust has formed on parts of the body (door tops, fender-to-body joins, etc) where moisture seems to have accumulated while the car was living under a carport for years. This was, however, treated when purchased in 2011 and although visible, has not deteriorated any further and if you're into patina, does look kind of cool.

The original books come with the car. Recent services, although done, have not been stamped in the book. In January 2022, four new Dunlop tyres were fitted, along with a new brake light switch, ignition barrel, windscreen wipers, CV boots and other bits and bobs. Everything (including the interior light!) is working; there are no major oil leaks, clutch shudder or slip and the car drives brilliantly.

While cruising at 100km/h is its comfortable spot, you will not find another car that delivers so many smiles per hour.

Papers are in order and status reflects 'Used/gebruik'. Licence is up to date.

Available to view by appointment in Johannesburg.

Reminders to bidders:

  • A buyer's premium of 5% (which includes VAT) for cars and bikes applies.
  • The minimum buyer's premium is R5 000 incl. VAT for cars and bikes (eg. if R50 000 is bid, buyer's premium = R5 000 and total cost = R55 000).
  • The maximum buyer's premium is capped at R100 000 incl. VAT for cars and bikes (eg. if R3 000 000 is bid, buyer's premium = R100 000 and total cost = R3 100 000).
  • Classic Car Africa aims to present each lot as accurately as possible but it is the responsibility of the bidder to be 100% satisfied with the condition of the lot before placing a bid.

The system doesn't take my bids please bid R38000 for Nick Hearn thanks


Hi Nick, the bid increments are preset and change as the auction gets closer to ending. Are you logged in as a registered bidder when it is not letting you bid? - Stuart CCA 3 months, 2 weeks ago


I cannot get onto the site to bid and I'd like to place my bid of R38000 - Nick 3 months, 2 weeks ago


Hi Nick, your profile is already registered as an approved buyer using your nhearn52 email. You need to login rather than try register again. This will then mail you a one time pin again. You can then bid. The increments are at R5000 at the moment but decrease as time gets closer to closing. - Stuart CCA 3 months, 2 weeks ago

Not easy to bid on this site.


Hi, we had a system issue yesterday and early parts of today that stopped registration and bidding deposit notifications. Did you register, submit ID and proof of residence and pay the R250 fee and we missed the notice? If so please mail stuart@classiccarafrica.com and we can sort it out manually. Once approved a bid is just a login and hit the BID button. If you haven't registered please click the buying tab at the top of the page for instructions. - Stuart CCA 3 months, 2 weeks ago
