This 1968 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible has the distinct attraction
of a unique color combo and the practical appeal of a strong motor
and a freshly rebuilt transmission. So this is the classic drop-top
for those who enjoy a good drive in a true classic.
You can tell there was extra thought put into the layout of this
deep red and cream. Early Beetles could have a two-tone theme with
the side a separate color. But this one also includes details like
the bumpers and taillight bezels. It's such a comprehensive style
that even the wheel covers are painted to match the color theme.
And the overall feeling is a driver quality style that makes ready
for hopping in on a whim and going for a drive. You'll also
appreciate the overall quality of a VW. That includes a well-done
insulated top with a glass back window. It's these kinds of
features that make a fun classic also feel substantial.
The interior is nicely done for both style and substance. The door
panels look good as they mimic the exterior two-tone, and there are
also cream inserts on the dash. You may have noticed the upgraded
bucket seats. They are borrowed from a late-model car, and so you
have plenty of modern comfort. And as you look a little closer,
they even have red stitching to coordinate with the overall style.
These new seats take up enough space that the back seat was taken
out. But really, you were going to likely just be using it to hold
luggage or beach supplies, and so this makes it easier.
Under the rear hatch is a year-correct 1500cc motor. This was said
to have been rebuilt only a few years ago, and it fires up and runs
like a powerhouse that has been given the right investments. Plus,
the four-speed manual transmission has been freshly rebuilt. So you
have a confident package that's ready to hit the road. And this is
a car that's really meant for driving. Not only do you have the
Beetle's nimble steering, but now there are also front-wheel disc
Distinction, comfort, confidence, and value... this VW makes for a
terrific classic for those who love to drive. Call today!!!
