This 1968 Volkswagen Beetle is a cool and classic Bug with the
right touches of distinction inside and out.
We all love the Beetle because these are classic cars with a sturdy
German-engineered base. It provides for a strong foundation to
build an individual spirit. This one has a cheery style with glossy
light blue paint. There's also added shine from bright chrome
bumpers, added headlight eyelids, full-length trim, and a fun set
of quad exhaust tips to give it a sporty flair. So it has the clean
look of a solid cruiser.
The interior furthers this feeling of a good driver's classic. Not
only do you have the high-back front bucket seats that came on the
later models, but they are also more comfortable with soft velour
upholstery. And with the matching rear seat, headliner, and side
panels this has a quality and uniform appearance. This also has
provisions for some nice features like a sunroof and an upgraded
AM/FM/CD stereo (they will need servicing to function again.) It's
fun to drive with the original-style dual-spoke steering wheel,
correct VDO gauge, and an upgraded EMPI stick shift for manual
The engine bay has been upgraded for show. There are polished inner
walls, a polished fan shroud, aluminum pulleys, and plenty of extra
style. This 1600cc flat-four also has added substance with the
upgraded Engle camshaft. That gives this little Bug some extra pep
in its step. And you really get to feel it thanks to the control of
the four-speed manual transmission. Add in nimble handling and
modern Kumho tires, and it's easy to understand why these are an
everlasting symbol of driver fun.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a great-looking VW with
features that will always attract attention. So when you want an
easy, affordable, and standout classic, this Beetle is the one.
