For Sale: 1966 Volkswagen Beetle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Sleek paint and a beautifully detailed interior give an instant appeal to this 1966 Volkswagen Beetle. But the shining motor in the rear also contains a serious upgrade in power. And you even have upgraded tires and four-wheel disc brakes to enjoy it properly. So it makes for a classic that impresses for its style and substance.

The attention-grabbing color you see on this one is called Tangelo Orange Zest. It's a high-quality PPG color, and as the name suggests, there is a zesty metallic element that loves to pop in the sunshine. And this professional application also has a deep clearcoat luster, and so the result makes the Beetle's curved sheet metal almost look like liquid as the light rolls across the finish. And the paint was only the beginning of the investments in this classic. It has a total look of quality with brightly polished bumpers, doors that close with confidence, well-fitting full-length trim, pliable weather-stripping, clean rubber running boards, and upgraded polished alloys with the classic EMPI GT look. And take a moment to notice not only that you have custom pinstriping, but also the colors.

The exterior orange returns inside on the door tops and dash, but now a two-tone tan takes center stage on the upholstery, door panels, and headliner. The exterior pinstriping returns on the dash, and that's where you can really see that those colors are there to unite the interior. It highlights the extra thought that went into restoring this VW. The front bucket seats, EMPI four-speed floor shifter, upgraded VDO gauges, and grippy steering wheel make for a nice driver's car. And the AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth hidden in the glovebox gives you better cruising music, too.

The engine bay is another big reminder of how detailed the restoration was. After all, Volkswagen didn't even make them this nice at the factory. The polished firewall, polished fan shroud, and overall tidy appearance are to make sure this powerhouse is always ready to be displayed. This is a 2332cc flat-four, and this is a professional Pat Downs build completed in 2018. Not only do you get a serious increase in displacement, but this also inhales deeper with dual Weber carburetors. And a nice set of headers exhale into a single pipe muffler. We even have the dyno sheet proving this is producing 180 horsepower. As you look underneath, this has an extra-clean style where you can recognize the wide modern sport tires and four-wheel disc brakes that makes this more powerful Bug a more confident driver.

This Beetle has this iconic look you love, but it also has been upgraded over every inch to be an awesome custom driver. Call today!!!
