60' Beetle 'Miss. Ellie

Post by Murdock00 on Thu May 23, 2013 7:35 pm

I did make a post on my beetle on The Samba, but I figured I may as well do the same here. Sure there are some here that didn't see it or don't go there, so sharing again. Smile



Miss. Ellie is a 1960 Beetle that was purchased in March 15th 1960 from Colman Motors of Augusta. The original owners, Mary and Ellie McGahee use to sing on the radio here locally, so they were kind of town celebrities at the time. Not sure how long they had it before my Great-Grandfather purchased the car for a 100 bucks because it wouldn't run. So after towing it home he found the coil bracket was no good and the coil shot, so he made a new bracket and replaced the coil. He drove to work everyday from the point.






It does have a flaw in the paint. Since this hood had the one prob style hinge...some point in its life it got twisted and we all know what happens there. Well...rather than the body shop fix it right and weld it up...the guy in charge just bondo the crack... So the first day open and the hood left on the prop...



And yes, that is an original German tire. xP

Yeah they are the 58-59 seat covers, its the same style of what was in the car when I first saw it, and I was 5 then, got the car when I was 12 and recently finished it.

Also, Thanks for the compliments guys.

I know I probably said this on the samba, but it deserves to be re-said:

Great looking car! cheers

The bodyshop did a match to the indigo blue that the car was paint originally.
