Volkswagen - 1302 Beetle "Holzhaus" - NO RESERVE - 1970

This Volkswagen was born as a 1970 model 1302, however in 1995 it was used as the basis for a 'Travelling Shelter' project: the bodywork was modified and rebuilt with the addition of a solid wood 'house-shaped' structure, complete with a sofa, working kitchenette with fireplace and windows that open! See all details and finishes: a work of passion and care taken in all its details. It was used by the previous owner as a base for the Alpine Club during rallies and parties and festivals, also as a mobile bar and ticket office and during Volkswagen rallies; it was very successful and was photographed in many magazines and newspapers of the time (see photo). It has been built remaining in the shape of the vehicle without protrusions. The bodywork is very solid and maintains the original chassis, it was also all hand-painted in 1995 and is very well presented with minimal signs of normal use; The solid wood interior was hand-carved and custom made and is in excellent condition: like the furniture, the fireplace and the entire roof with real water gutter and insulating tiles The underbody is solid and the engine (B code - 1600cc) was recently restarted and the car starts with the key and the engine runs very well, however the technical inspection is over and normal maintenance is required for use on street.
