I came across this 2001 VW New Beetle 1.8T for sale not far from my home...priced at only AUD $700.
Will be finding the missing parts for it sometime in the future...and then eventually it'll be used for a
daily driver.

I already have a 2004 New Beetle 1.8T (also black) that was going to be used for a daily driver once I got it back on the road.
I've decided now to completely overhaul my 2004 model instead...and only use it occasionally.

This 2001 model I've just bought has been used in the past as a parts car...and is still in basically good condition though.
The guy I got it from said he used the front off it to repair his daughters car that was involved in an accident.
Apparently prior to pulling it apart he had it running...and said the odometer read 98,000 km's (almost 61,000 miles).
He told me that the automatic transmission seemed to be working fine also...as he had the car running and driving at one
point before dismantling parts from it.

The front fenders are still there...and inside back of the car.
Most of the interior , Fuel pump , Tail Lights , Reverse Lamp , OEM Aluminum Wheels , and rear of exhaust system are also missing.
Original owners manual is still with it also...as is the original instrument cluster and key fob.

Initially thought the car was a 2001 model...but I noticed today it has a build date of October 2001 - which would make it a 2002 model.
Apparently if it was made in the second half of the year (For the Australian market at least)...then it is classed as the following years
model.
