A short while back, on a tip off, I paid a visit to the Islamabad Administration's secret abandoned car pool lot ('nazaarat') located at Tarlai, just after Rawal Town on Rawal Road. Very well hidden from view.
There lies this ugly but certainly restorable 63 Deluxe Bug. The car is now destined for public auction and/or scrapping in June, amongst several other classics. Other classics include the famous Aabpara Police Station 67 Cadillac Fleetwood (awful), a 72 Merc 220D (reasonable), a blue 70 Bug (rough/accidented, suitable for spares), a white 70-71 1300 Bug (reasonable condition), a 75-76 VW Polo MKI (very rare find) and an early 60s MKI Ford Cortina. See what else you can rummage from in there - also early Jap classics, including a 2-dr Mazda.
Anyway, will plan a trip back a bit later on.
As I now have my hands full with 1, possibly 2 VWs (details coming soon - stay seated!), plus limited space, I might not be in a position to take this 63.
As far as I can see, it's pretty complete, average bodywork (not too bad) has an engine and is a roller. More details on request - please someone save this Bug,. Do not let it escape into the hands of the metal crew and the auction mafia!! It'll be cheap.
As it'll be a public auction, you'll only get a bill of sale. Car is not involved in any criminal case (s. 550 CrPC car - abandoned).
