For Sale: 2009 Volkswagen Beetle in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

2009 Volkswagen Beetle Pickup

At the 1994 North American International Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled the Concept One, a "retro"-themed concept car with a resemblance to the original Volkswagen Beetle. Designed by J Mays and Freeman Thomas at the company's California design studio, the concept car was based on the platform of the Volkswagen Polo. A red cabriolet concept was featured at the Geneva Motor Show, also in 1994. The New Beetle carries many design similarities with the original VW Beetle: separate fenders, vestigial running boards, sloping headlamps, and large round taillights, as well as a high rounded roofline. It was assembled in VW's Puebla factory in Mexico.

We truly never know what's going to come through the doors of our Hallowed Halls next, and this bug is a prime example. For consignment, something totally different, a 2009 Volkswagen Beetle with a pickup truck conversion performed. Our consignor saw one like it in an Ocean City parade and had to have one. The kit was purchased and the rest, as they say, is history. Nice beige paint, all the classic bug lines but with a hauler twist, a clean leather interior, and all the safety systems that were lacking in the original work together to form this retro styled customized piece of automotive artwork.

Exterior
A smoothed and updated design was penned around the original Beetle and many of the styling cues have been retained. Bathed entirely in Harvest Moon Beige with well minded gaps this VW retains the factory design on the front 2/3rds. A neoprene bumper on the front forms an aero design to the car and fits nicely into the modern era of vehicles. Large round headlights are sloped back and fit smoothly into the front fascia and fenders. Small rocker trimmings flare out and remind us of the running boards of yore. This small flare connects the separate front and integrated rear fenders giving more retro styling to the side view. Now taking up space where the trunk and rear seat passengers used to reside is a small step side bed with smooth aluminum sheet lining for the sides and fold down tailgate, and ribbed aluminum makes up the flooring. Bringing up the rear are retro throwback style small taillights and molded in roll pan below. Multi-spoke 16" wheels grace the 4 corners and are wrapped in newer blackwall rubber with good tread. Cool dude...

Interior
Sculpted door panels in a mix of beige leather topped with Harvest Moon Beige plastic greet us when first swinging the doors open. These panels retain their ergonomic design with tight material and black switches are on for the power windows, locks, truck and fuel door releases. More cream leather for the stylish front buckets which show only the slightest signs of wear on their smooth bolsters. A cream plastic console races toward the dash and houses the shifter and requisite cupholders. A simple but effective dash shows in black and cream with a round gauge in front of the driver showing a myriad of gauges for the driver to monitor. We see a bulbous outcropping of the dash holds the AM/FM/CD player, heater/AC slides and buttons and further down the heated seat buttons as well as the ESP (electronic stability) controller. Clean tan carpeting floods the floors and while we note the holder, we see no signs of the vase and daisys that fit into the dash. Peace and love man...

Drivetrain
Lifting the hood, the engine is up front these days folks, we see a 2.5 Liter fuel injected gasoline inline 5-cylinder making 150hp. This engine is fairly well exposed for the world to see and shows with a light coating of dust. Sending power to the 3.65 geared axle is a 6-speed automatic Tiptronic transmission that can be left in drive or shifted manually through the gears.

Undercarriage
A clean and original underside is seen up on the lift with only bits of road dirt and minor patina. A strong steel unibody is seen as well as gray rust-free floor pans. Independent Macpherson suspension is on front and for the rear we see independent coil springs. Power steering is noted as well as 4-wheel power disc brakes. The original single exhaust system is seen and remains rust free.

Drive-Ability
Slipping into the comfortable leather buckets I had come to realize that I wasn't in just any Beetle. I was in a new one and a pickup truck version at that. A twist of the key and the engine came to life and settled into an almost inaudible purr. Out on the patented Classic Auto Mall Test Track this bug exhibited good acceleration, adequate handling and surprisingly good braking. All functions were operational at the time of our drive and while my partner in crime, crack decoder and all-around good guy wanted to ride in the bed, our insurance regulations and common sense did not allow it. Fun Fun Fun

Long gone is the image of utilitarian simplicity that the Beetle is known for and now it is replaced with not only a new take on a timeless design, but some custom thrown in for good measure. A groovy custom bed that integrates well with the smooth lines and a plush leather interior it's easy to fall in love with the New Beetle. Visit our Hallowed Halls and get your retro on with this wild ride and dig the ability to haul some goods on your way to the show...Funky!
