An exceptionally cool 1965 Volkswagen Beetle with two-tone paint, tubbed rear end, four-wheel disc brakes, and an enhanced motor boldly sitting out for the world to see. So we know you're already tempted, and that's before you looked at the exceptionally affordable price.
This Bug has presence. While the Volkswagen world encourages customization, you can instantly tell this one is special. The gray with the red body makes for a very cool two-tone appearance, and the even shine unites the two hues nicely in the sunlight. We'll address the motor that draws all the attention to the rear in a moment, but for now appreciate all the other cool touches on this VW. The streamline front fenders, racing front forks, and ten spoke front wheel. Plus those huge rear ones within the tubbed wells give this Beetle a commanding stance.
Inside is a thoughtful setup that keeps the iconic appearance of these earlier VWs, but adds all the right upgrades. So while you have the original style gray bucket seats and two-tone door panels, that grippy steering wheel is a nice functional touch. But the best example of this "best of both worlds" setup is the gauge package. It keeps the original and iconic VDO single dial. But you've already seen what's hanging off the rear, and you know you want plenty more info on what's going on back there. That's why there's been a full auxiliary gauge package added, but they still utilized VDO readouts. The large tach is especially helpful when paired with the Hurst shifter.
We know you've been waiting to hear about that bold flat-four out back, so we'll start by mentioning that it's a later, larger 1600cc unit. These motors are exceptionally robust and accommodating to modification – after all, the first Porsches have their roots in this engine block. So it should be no surprise that this custom Volkswagen has been given some performance upgrades such as dual Weber carbs, Compu-Fire ignition, and those snaking header pipes that join the trumpet style exhaust. Despite the bold appearance, this coupe still never abandons that unmistakable rhythmic hum of an air-cooled VW... But you definitely feel the enhancements out on the road. Plus, you get complete control over the upgraded motor thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Beetles make the most of their power because the rear motor puts constant weight (traction) over the rear driving wheels, which is enhanced further on this custom by the massive Mickey Thompson rear tires. And you're always in control of this wild Bug thanks to an upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes.
Now you know this custom VW was built to both show off and be a true driver. That kind of quality doesn't happen very often, especially at this affordable price. So hurry before some else grabs this deal. Call today!!!
