Sleek, lightweight, powerful, and an absolute ton of fun - this
1956 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is a custom build that will
impress from the fit of the body to the shine of the motor. It all
makes for a derailed roadster that you'll love to dive.
This custom Volksrod announces it's something special the moment it
comes into view. Sure, bright red is always a bold way to make an
entrance, but this one is also super-sleek. The metal body with
fiberglass rear is an almost seamless design. The front end is
uncluttered by a bumper or accessories, so it's a unique mix of
Ford Model A hot rod and a Porsche 356 Speedster. No door handles
gratuitous trim keep the profile extra sleek, and the sunlight just
seems to love to dance around the curves of the rear. The black and
silver pinstriping package is pure custom car cool. Plus, you have
17-inch Budnik wheels, suicide doors, frenched tail lights, and an
air scoop in the rear to remind you where the motor is.
The black roof really highlights the low windshield, and it gives
this the profile like a Porsche Speedster. But as good as this
looks in place, a roadster like this was meant to be open to the
world. That way you can show off the custom red interior. You can
tell this was thoughtfully laid out just by the details, like the
how there's a thin black stripe similar to the exterior in the
doors, and there's a cool silver and black racing stripe that not
only goes over the driver's seat, but also the steering wheel, roll
bar, and rear seat. This is absolutely a driver's machine with
well-bolstered front bucket seats (the rear is probably best used
for storage.) You also have race-ready features like the four-point
harnesses and a comprehensive roll cage that strengthens the
already sturdy Beetle pan. There's also a sports steering wheel on
an Ididit tilt column, a push-button start, and a custom-formed
dash full of AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges.
The motor is exactly what you want in a custom sports car like
this. The engine bay has the kind of ultra tidy and bright style
that tells you they know you're going to be showing it off. And the
hardy VW-based flat-four has been enlarged and upgraded. This is a
2443cc engine - something larger than ever offered by VW or
Porsche. And it has a twin set of dual-barrel carbs, a Bergman 86mm
full circle crankshaft, Cima 94mm pistons, Total Seal rings, FK10
camshaft, Bergman D-port heads, and an MSD 6AL ignition.
Ceramic-coated headers let this exhale with added power and a
terrific tune from the custom dual exhaust. The full package is
estimated to produce 200 horsepower, and in a 1,300-lbs machine,
that makes for impressive acceleration and fun. And you have
complete control over this mighty motor thanks to the hardy
four-speed manual transmission. You also have a fully independent
suspension, adjustable coilovers, Mustang II steering box, grippy
ZR-rated tires, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is an impressive full custom build. And you'd expect to pay a
ton more for something this sleek done in steel. So you know you
need to hurry up to catch this roadster. Call today!!!
