Vehicle Description

Up for sale in the Houston showroom is one gorgeous worldwide icon, the 1960 Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen Beetle for sale, informally known in Germany as the Volkswagen Käfer and in the USA as Volkswagen Bug is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engine economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until present day. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany, wishing for a cheap and simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of his country. He contracted Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 to design and build it, after telling him in 1933 "This is the car for my roads", so the mission was set. During this post-war period, the Beetle had superior performance in its category with a top speed of 71 mph and a 0–60 mph in 27.5 seconds with fuel consumption of 36 mpg for the standard 34 hp engine. This gorgeous restoration is a lovely example of how this car would have come from the factory and is in amazing condition. With a 1,200 CC air-cooled 4-cylinder engine, this baby purrs like a sewing machine. Backed by a 4-speed manual transmission, this Beetle for sale just begs to be taken through the gears! With Salmon paint, this VW Beetle for sale is a real blast from the past. Options on this gorgeously restored 1960 Beetle for sale include: am/fm radio, vinyl seats, seat belts, numbers are matching and rally steel wheels, chrome hubcaps and bias ply white wall tires.
