"I have not viewed the car but it seems to be a nice and an exciting project. The car has been parked on a dry wooden floor and has survived moisture damage. Just needs a good start up service and review and will delight its new owner for many years."

This description has the current owner and grandchildren provided:
This is our grandfather's, Gustav Jansson, last car - a Volkswagen 1200 Limousine year 1962. My grandfather bought it new in 1962 on Bolidenvägen in Johanneshov, Stockholm for 9200 SEK and the car has been in the family's possession all along - and only grandpa has driven it. The label with grandpa's name and address is still in the car.
The car initially rolled mostly in Stockholm where my grandfather and grandmother lived, but also down to the summer place on northern Öland. After his grandfather retired, probably in the mid-70s, he chose to move the car down to Öland and just drive it there. Since they became pensioners, they were at the summer place 5-6 months a year and he used the car only then.
My grandfather passed away in 1992 and the summer of 1991 was probably the last summer the car was used. Since then, it has stood up in a barn at our summer place (which is also still in the family) and has not been used since. The last inspection was carried out sept 1990.
What we know is most of what is left in the original and a lot of documentation remains, original documents, owner's manual, service book, first aid kit, registration plates. The front seat have always been fitted with seat covers
The car has been in dry storage for almost 30 years and has not been used, so we do not know how drivable it is. Battery is missing and on the exterior rear view mirror there is no mirror glass. There are some smaller dents on the left rear fender as well as on the right front fender. The screens also have some rust infestations that have not been repaired by the workshop. The bottom where the spare wheel stands has been repaired with some kind of plastic padding. It is original paint, but in various places simple improvements have been made.
