This 1965 Volkswagen Beetle has been freshly restored to radiate
cool cruising style. With an extra clean look - right down to the
undercarriage - and a few well-placed upgrades, this is the kind of
classic that you'll love driving to the shows and likely fill the
trunk with a few awards.
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. The green paint is the true showstopper. It's a professional
application that has the kind of gloss and shine that really makes
this classic a sunny day friend. And there are beautiful brightwork
details, like the headlight eyelids, window rainguards, and
Porsche-like front fender vents. And an earlier Beetle wouldn't be
complete with big chrome bumpers featuring overriders. And those
wheels resemble the classic VW sport units, but they are modern
17-inch alloys. They not only give this a cool stance, but also
they let you fit better modern tires.
The interior has a vintage look, but a freshness that's an instant
reminder that you'll be the first person to spend any real time
here since the restoration. The plush carpeting, supple upholstery,
quality paint, taut headliner, and all the other investments in new
materials does a great job of elevating the experience without
taking away the basic Beetle charm. After all, you still have the
skinny white steering wheel, classic VDO gauge (in KM), and
separate gas readout that are on early VWs.
The engine bay is another big reminder of how fresh and detailed
the restoration is. After all, Volkswagen didn't even make them
this nice at the factory. You can tell the tidy presentation was
made to display, and so you'll proudly show off the full polished
presentation. The 1200cc horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine
fires up easily with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor
can. You get to make the most out of this motor with the control of
the four-speed manual transmission. And with the modern Hankook
Ventus V12 Evo tires, this classic VW feels surefooted and
This is a true classic restored to an upper-echelon standard. So if
