One of the known rag-top's is up for sale. It has been acquired by Nisar who is the modern day butcher of beetles. It is the same beetle that was seen parked outside Pearl Continental Rawalpindi all these years. The poor car has had a bad run as the previous owner decided to 'up-grade' its looks by replacing the fenders and deck lid with those off a 69-70 car. It would not have been that bad if they had kept the modifications reversible. Instead they hammered the rear apron (which happened to be an H apron) flat to accommodate the shorter deck-lid.
The frame tunnel has been cut open and the area around the transmission linkage has been hacked to allow for a later model transmission to fit.
The floors are badly rusted and the heater channels are non existent. Doors are held close by bolts (chatkhani) you would see on a public toilet. The dash has been drilled in places to add after market switches.
It would still be savable but the current registration papers of the car that are being offered do not belong to the car. The VIN plate is missing and the number punched in metal is not the same as the one in the registration papers.
In my opinion the car is not worth more than 50,000 rupees and I am being very generous here only because the rag top still has potential.
Please make your own decision if you are inclined to restore this car. I must warn that she is too far gone and would require a big budget restoration to bring it even close to a decent state.
