This Volkswagen is a very rare Glitter Bug Special Edition and possibly the only surviving example of a Glitter Bug painted in "Royal Glow" with the metallic silver "Zandvoort Streaks" Stripe Package. Everywhere you go people applaudie it...asking questions, giving you a honk, or a thumbs up or a peace sign. Everybody loves this car!!! The Glitter Bug Special Edition was a collaboration between VW and the 3M Corporation. This Special Edition began with a Deluxe Beetle. 3M would then take the cars, apply their custom paint and graphics using the original VW paint as their base coat. Then the rest of the Special Edition Package was installed including a wood and chrome steering wheel and wood shift knob, chrome pedal covers, real Empi Steel Sprint Star Wheels made by Lemerz in Germany, wood grain dash trim and wood capped dash and vent window knobs. Daily driver...not perfect, but easy and fun to drive, reliable and super cool. It has the original 1600 single port that came with the car from Germany. Everything is stock and original so you can set every spec according to manufacturer's recommendations, and refer to factory manuals when necessary.

It has amazing character...with it's dings and dents and scratches and scrapes...it's truly one of a kind, and a beauty! Volkswagen built millions of Bugs, but only a handful of special edition cars. Regardless of whether you enjoy it the way it is as I have, or do a really nice restoration one day...it will always be a rare and valuable Volkswagen. I was fortunate enough to meet Cheech and Chong and Shelby Chong recently and they were all nice enough to autograph the glove box door for me. Their autographs are the perfect compliment for a super cool Bug like this!!! This car is all fun, all day ...everyday. Runs Great, Drives Great ...Starts Great, Stops Great. It'll jump right out there on the Interstate and hang right in there with everybody else ...and it makes mundane, around town errand running a pleasure too...sometimes laughable, with all the love this car gets from admirers... This is one of my favorite cars." To obtain more information on this particular vehicle, call, email or stop by, and one of our sales associates will be happy to assist you.
