1970 beetle clutch problems

hello everyone,

I have recently purchased a 1970 Beetle and i seem to have a problem with my clutch. when i step on the clutch pedal it will go all the way to the floor, also once it reaches the floor it refuses to come back up. what could be the cause of this? i have tried to lubricate the hinge with 3-in-1 oil but i havent noticed any difference. any help or advise is greatly appreciated.

The clutch cable may have broken, the wing nut may have fallen off, the fork inside the bell housing might have broken or you may have lost your TOB. It might be something as simple as a clutch adjustment.
