For Sale: 1965 Volkswagen Beetle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A beautiful and fresh restoration makes this 1965 Volkswagen Beetle instantly attractive. And as you look over every inch, right down to the undercarriage, you see a crispness that tells you they looked over every inch of this classic.

This car is fresh from a restoration in Brazil... and when we say fresh, we mean it looks and feels fresh off the boat. Some of the best restorations for VWs happen in South America these days (after all, they got to live with the Beetle even longer than we did!) So it just seems fitting to have this one finished in Amazon Green. And while the color name will be a great way to talk about where this car came from, its true allure is the high-gloss finish. It's the kind of sleek shine that tells you they took their time restoring the body and applying this rich green. It has a detail-oriented look with beautiful full-length trim, correct/classic wheel covers, and bumpers with override bows. And you'll love all the road-ready classic upgrades, like the front driving lights and the rear rack with wooden slats. It's a high-quality total presentation where you can just tell you're going to be up for some classic car awards the moment you turn the key.

The interior continues this car's feeling of classic style done with the freshest investments. The upgrades here are done in subtle ways. For example, the upholstery has a classic style, but they are now done in fresh and supple ultraleather. The windows are tinted and they also added shoulder belts for the front and rear. The steering wheel and shifter have that great thin but sturdy VW feel. And we especially love the dash. It has the classic VW look, but the VDO gages in kilometers, "Gasolina" readout, and Colaradi radio are distinct little hints about this car's South American origins.

The very tidy horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine is so clean and detailed that you can read the correct decal on top of the air intake. It fires up easily with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor can. These are far from the most powerful motors out there, but it's the engineering that makes the VW legendary. The rear-mounted block gives the car good traction, and it doesn't have the power loss associated with a large driveshaft. Also, you get to make the most out of this motor with the control of the four-speed manual transmission. The result is a nippy little car. But let's face it, when it looks this good, you want to be going slow enough so everyone gets a good stare at this bug.

You know you fell in love with this VW the moment you laid eyes on it. It just knows how to show its classic style and true quality all in its first glance. And so you know it needs to be in your garage. Call today!!!
