Sleek, custom, and absolutely unique, this 1968 Volkswagen Maxi
Taxi is a great way to grab attention and be accepted
This is the custom that can be accepted in any crowd. After all, it's based on a VW, looks like a Ford, and doesn't have a single inch that hasn't been customized. It starts with a shade of burnt orange that has so much clearcoat it looks like candy-coated Tootsie Pop. It sets off the custom car attitude that continues with the orange stripes that highlight all the best curves of this cool creation. And for more added distinction, the two shades of orange are set apart everywhere by the silver pinstriping. More than just the paint, you have a terrific convertible-style fiberglass hardtop, side carriage lights, orange wind deflectors, headlight covers, and so much more for people to look at. Even the hood ornament has been customized to fit in the total theme. But beyond all this flash, you'll still see substance. You feel it in the way the doors close correctly. And there's practicality with everything from side curtains to modern treads on this classic-looking whitewall tires.
Inside the custom orange attitude continues. Not only is it on the seats, door panels, and dash, but also you even have orange shag on the celling that matches the rear pillows. Even the 8-ball shifter knob is orange! Oh yeah, this is the custom machine that will have people talking. But more than just impressing others, this is also a fine cruiser. With everything from a VDO tach to an AM/FM/CD stereo with modern Bluetooth and plenty of speakers, this one has all the right features you want.
The engine bay is ready to show off with a tidy presentation and plenty of bright components like the air topper, pulleys, and fan shroud. But as stylish as this is, you also are comforted by the knowledge that this is a hardy and stout 1600cc Beetle powerplant. And this VW feels great out on the road thanks to the control of the four-speed manual transmission, upgraded suspension components, and an upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes.
It's hard to beat a professionally-built machine that commands attention like this one - especially at such an obtainable price. So don't miss out, call today!
