1965 VW Beetle

The Car:

Purchased in December 1965 by W F Clarey, and owned by Mr Clarey until 2012.  Since then the car has changed hands a few times and was recently purchased by Type 2 Detectives Director Paul Medhurst who has personally carried out a mechanical overhaul and various upgrades to the suspension and brakes, making the car as pleasant to drive and as reliable as possible.
The car drives really well and is a fantastic survivor with bags of character and is guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes.
