Vehicle Description

Very desirable vintage oval window Beetle. It has been restored to show condition. Very attractive colors, lowered stance and wheels.

EXTERIOR: Desirable oval window. The body is in outstanding condition. I don't see any rust, damage or bubbles, it is straight. Very attractive color for this car. The paint has a very smooth, glossy finish. All the weather strips, gaskets and fender welts have been replaced. All of the chrome and stainless trim looks like new. The running boards have been recovered. Upgraded with Porsche chrome plated wheels. It has glass headlight lenses, bullet turn signals and snowflake taillight lenses. The dual chrome tailpipes reminds me of James Bond machine guns.

INTERIOR: It is practically brand new inside. I can tell the seats are rebuilt because the cushion is nice and firm. Reupholstered seats and door panels. The inside metal is all painted smooth Dove gray. The speedometer looks new. The knobs, steering wheel, window cranks and handles are all excellent. The white headliner looks new. It has a tinted visor on a chrome bracket. Down on the floor it has the correct carpet/rubber mat combination.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The entire compartment was restored to show quality. All the components look proper and fresh. All the components appear to be the original German parts- distributor, carb, fuel pump etc.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Meticulously restored. It's detailed and painted up just as nice as the outside. The wiring harness looks new.

UNDERSIDE: The pan is pristine and painted gloss black. Looking up at the motor it looks very clean. The transmission looks brand new. All the hardware- nuts, bolts, grease fittings look recent. This car has been restored mechanically. Shocks, axle shafts, heater tubes, brake lines and hoses look recent. The suspension has been lowered.

"The People's Car", that is what Volkswagen translates to in German. That is why it is so popular today too. So many people can relate to a VW bug. They are a fun little car that has a way of making people happy. This is an exceptional example because of condition and looks. Being from the 50s makes it very collectable too. Enjoy your investment!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
