Vehicle Description

This 1965 Volkswagen Beetle roadster has a cool custom look from every angle. So when something this distinct with many recent investments is also so affordable, you know you need to dig into all the derails.

This custom was built to attract serious attention. This has a cool two-tone Victory Red and Stone White that has a terrific modern clearcoat shine. In fact, it does such a good job of highlighting the VW's iconic curves that they expertly deleted the bumpers just so that the lines could continue uninterrupted. This one has great details in classic elements reserved for earlier cars like the full bright trim, classic Volkswagen script, front vents, and W deck lid. That's joined by custom details, like the headlight covers and double teardrop taillights. And we all love the look of the wheel package that smartly utilizes the hubcaps, steel wheels, and whitewalls to create a cool look that coordinates with the two-tone paint.

The chopped windshield announces this is a true roadster that's meant to be open to the world. So they made sure to do it right with a terrifically restored interior that shows this car coordinates inside & out. Two-tone seats, door panels, and even the dash create the look of a very thoughtful classic. And they were mindful with the details, too, like how the door tops are smooth so that looks like this custom was born this way. And while this has a great classic look - right down to the Wolfsburg crest in the middle of the dual-spoke steering wheel - there are a few nice subtle additions. Items like the EMPI shifter and well-hidden AM/FM/CD stereo upgrade the driving experience.

The engine out back is a 1600cc unit. That's larger than what was available in '65, which gives you an upgrade in power without losing that hypnotic air-cooled hum. This was installed during this car's restoration/transformation, which was less than 4,600 miles ago. It runs strong and has the right features, like upgraded degree pulley and engine bay insulation. So this is a great heart for those who want to cruise this one all day long. And the four-speed manual transmission gives you full control of the motor.

This is an eye-catching custom roadster offered for an affordable price. So don't let this deal slip away, call today!
