This fully restored 1968 Volkswagen Beetle is a fine example of the
legendary 'Bug'. The restoration resulted in a VW that looks pretty
original but has had nice engine and suspension enhancements. Prior
to paint, the unibody was carefully refreshed. As part of a
thorough overall prep process, new floor-pans and running boards
were installed. Body panels fit very well and the beautiful 2-stage
Deep Blue finish was carefully applied. Other new components
include a windshield, rubber window seals and a wiring harness. New
five-spoke alloys w/Kumho radials provide a nice accent. Halogen
headlights were installed and new bumper/nerf bars were added. The
storage compartment under the front bonnet has been detailed and
carpeted. The interior has been reupholstered in Cream vinyl and is
classic Volkswagen - radio-delete with new black loop carpeting. (A
new dash is also 'somewhat' padded.) There is no A/C, but this VW
is still very cool - just roll down the windows and have fun. The
Beetle is powered by a 1600cc flat-four 'boxer' that is housed in a
nicely detailed engine compartment. It was totally rebuilt with
performance enhancements. An aftermarket single 2-barrel carb setup
was installed (appears to be the EMPI conversion) along with a mild
street-cam. The distributor is a Bosch 009 and a new starter was
added along with new plug wires. This Bug has a great 'lope'
through the custom dual header exhaust system. The 4-speed manual
transmission w/new clutch components shifts smoothly. Brakes have
been converted to 4-wheel disc, a new fuel tank installed ('69) and
new front/rear shocks have been fitted. Look at the photos - this
is a carefully restored VW that someone is going to have a lot of
fun with. Drive it or show it - an outstanding classic Bug. ALL
VEHICLES SOLD "AS-IS".
