Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1974

For sale is my amazing 1974 VW Beetle.
I bought this from New Mexico. It has a no expense spared Electric conversion done to it. It was a showcase vehicle for a solar company. This isn't a hack job home mechanic conversion. This was a professional conversion.
The heart of the car is the engine and batteries. The batteries came out of a late model chevy volt. This was an upgrade over the batteries that were installed when originally converted. Top speed observed is 70 MPH - I never felt the need to push it faster as it uses more electricity to do so. I've gone up to 50 miles on a charge. With the chevy volt battery it should do 80 miles.
It has a very expensive top of the line motor and controller. It is a 300 kilowatt 342 max volts 1000 amps controller and motor. The chevy volt battery is putting out 194+ volts so it is operating at half of it's limits. The controller is liquid cooled with an auxiliary pump for really hot days at high speeds.
Look at all the wiring, it's clean. Look at the engine bay, it's clean and tidy. Look under the hood, all organized.
All of the gauges, lights, and switches work. Everything is run off of a 7" touchscreen monitor. It includes CD, bluetooth, and battery and motor gauges.
The car retains the original 4 speed manual transmission and clutch. It drives like a normal car. Except there is no noise, no oil leaks, no exhaust smell, no maintenance, and best of all you can charge it from a standard outlet at your home or office.
All four corners of the chassis are upgraded. New shocks, and disc brake conversion all around.
The vehicle is from New Mexico - there is absolutely no rust. Look at the pictures of the body and underside. There isn't any rust bubbles in the usual areas.
There isn't a cleaner VW Beetle, there isn't a cleaner conversion. I've driven this car daily. It is reliable and an absolute joy to drive. It gets more attention than anything else that I've driven.
I have paperwork and receipts for everything that was installed. This includes the wiring diagrams and installation instructions. Every receipt, even the home depot or lower runs for small parts are included. All of the users manuals are included. This is a no maintenance vehicle, but if anything ever needed to be worked on, all of the paperwork is there.
This car is quick, quicker than a stock VW gas beetle. It has no shortage of power.
Insurance is less than $150 a year -
Please feel free to ask questions and I'll be happy to answer them
