Sorry for my ignorance, but why is beetle on the V5 create a problem

Because it's no longer a Beetle so it's incorrectly registered.

"Ah, Beach Buggies, sure, just a quick cheap way of getting a few more years out of a rusty Beetle. You can throw one together in a weekend." anon.

welcome to the site, pan corrosion wise also check the napoleons hat area ends and underside go first and the frame head around the axle mounts. guess you could ask the owner to put it up for an mot to see what an inspector thinks.
personally for 5,500 I would want it on the road so it could be driven home other wise it is a project and cheaper also the beetle saloon V5 is leverage for a price reduction many are still on saloon V5 descriptions with no problems others have lost their V5 through it as any build since 1998 should have been SVA or IVA tested.
Hard to value from photos you pay what you are happy with.

Just to reiterate what others have said,

I also feel that whilst its a good looking Buggy, for £5500 I would want to be putting the keys in the ignition and legally driving it down the road with a full mot. Cosmetics though, that's a personal choice and only one you can decide on.

Not ideally registered, but wouldn't put me off taking a chance on it if the price and condition were enough justification to warrant it.

EVERYBODY should have a good read up on the GREAT V5 DEBATE thread though as there is a lot of mis-information out there (especially from sellers) and it would be good to put some people straight.

Agree with Dave on this...

Here is a thought..... "Something" is only worth what "Someone" will pay for it.... It`s been sat "unbought" for a while now... There is a clue there I think....

Thanks everyone for the posts and information. I’ve been in contact with the seller and we spoke about the things mentioned above. I made an offer but it wasn’t accepted.So my hunt continues.
