1978 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Stock

I purchased this VW in mid-2015 with intention of having it restored by a shop for my daughter's 16th birthday; fast forward 2&1/2-years, after endless daily promises by the shop "it'll be done soon", my wife is fed-up and wants the funds to now go towards my daughter's college instead... the shop that was working on it closed down and I had to retrieve the car unfinished as seen in the pictures with disassembled miscellaneous parts (e.g. tail light, head lights, etc.) and is available with the car. The top needs to be redone and if one wanted to match, the interior as well, otherwise, the interior will clean-up very nicely. At present the car does not drive (i.e. missing battery) but was running before the restoration started in 2016; the car's EFI 1600 dual port motor was running like a champ prior to restoration. This vehicle is being sold AS-IS, NO RETURN, and is available to be viewed locally or if additional pictures and information is needed. My loss is obviously your gain as I'm just burned out from this project and have tolerated various criticisms for the past 3-years from various family members with opinions!! Please ask any questions and if uncertain please do not bid. Thank you for your interest, and remember the funds are going towards college!
