Description
 
1962 VW Beetle Classic, Full Sunroof, 100% Nut & Bolt Restoration.
For those of you who (like me) love the looks of the early Beetles, you traditionally have had to put up with the lackluster (understatement) performance of 1200cc 42hp engines. Imagine one of those classic Beetles with a brand new BAP 1776cc high performance engine (+$2700 parts only), tuned exhaust, Petronix ignition, electric fuel pump, etc. that make the car fast!

Then imagine that engine being installed in a rust-free example that was the recipient of at $3500 "rotisserie" paint job, where the car was fully disassembled and painted inside and out, top and bottom with a new Beetle Yellow duotone finish. Part of the restoration (or renovation, to be more precise) includes: new brakes, new clutch, new wiring harness… in fact the list of new items is too extensive to list, but a complete set of records comes with the car.

Now, add a completely new, correct interior, including seats, carpets, headliner, door panels, trunk liner, etc. that is all show quality. Top it off with a high-end Sony X-Plode AM/FM/CD Stereo for road music with custom-made enclosures that do not deface the car in any way, and you’ve got the coolest, hottest Beetle around.

Ah! Almost forgot to mention two of the most important Beetle options of all: a full Webasto-style sunroof that opens over both the front and back seats; and the ever-popular Birchwood roof luggage rack. These two accessories add hundreds -- if not thousands -- to the car’s value (and enjoyment).

If you’ve always admired the Beetles, but were concerned that they may not be suitable for today’s driving, this Bug will change your mind forever. It drives like a VW at part throttle, but kick it down, and she transforms into a period Porsche. All the while delivering the same high mileage that all the hybrids are shouting about. When was the last time someone waved at a Prius?
