A fresh car with a distinct style headlines this 1970 Volkswagen
Beetle. So you'll love the way this one is pure rolling nostalgia,
and yet, the paint is also butter-smooth to the touch. That's what
a quality classic is all about.
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!) And
you can see the difference from the moment this car comes into
view. It has a beautiful white paint that has the kind of high
gloss that will make you think this Beetle is really a porcelain
figurine. The style here is even said to pay tribute to the 1970
World Cup in Mexico (white car, red interior, and green tint to the
windows.) It has some more terrific details, like the front fender
vents, 1300 rear badge, and bright chrome bumpers with overriders.
And Beetle fans love the classic solid wheels with whitewalls and
smooth hubcaps. There's even the classic wood luggage rack on the
We hinted at the red interior earlier, but you're really going to
want to take some time to check it all out. The upholstery is as
fresh as the exterior, and so you'll love the supple Ultraleather
on the seats and side panels. This has a few well-placed upgrades,
like the shoulder belts for the front and rear. But the overall
feeling is pure classic VW. That's why you have the thin-grippy
steering wheel, smooth steel dash w/bright trim, and the vintage
VDO gauges w/separate gas readout.
Part of a complete restoration means the engine bay looks like
day-one, too. Fresh wires, fresh hoses, clean inner walls, and a
tidy setup really let you know this is a newly rebuilt motor. The
full package looks correctly crisp, right down to the decal on the
air filter. The air-cooled hum of this 1300-series motor is a
hypnotic tune that makes you fall in love with a VW. And you get a
good feel for the road thanks to a nimble little car that gives you
the control of a four-speed manual transmission.
This is a fresh-looking restored car, right down to the
undercarriage. So you have a show-worthy Beetle that you know is
going to be a hit at your favorite places. But the only way to take
this to the car show tomorrow is to call today!
