For Sale: 1970 Volkswagen Beetle in Fairmont City, Illinois

$13,995

Vehicle Description

Up for sale in our Orlando Showroom is a very stunning example of German engineering, the 1970 Volkswagen Beetle. Made extremely popular during the 1950's-1970's, the Volkswagen Beetle has a cult following all of its own. Ultimately the Volkswagen Beetle is designed for utilitarian simplicity. The cars follow a basic guideline of having a rear mounted engine/transmission, allowing these cars to be built, broken down then rebuilt within the same day no matter what might happen to it. The engine is the original air cooled 1600cc 4 cylinder, which despite not having the same horsepower levels as most cars of this era, does a great job of showing itself off due to how lightly engineered it is. The transmission is a 4-speed manual transmission, original to the car as well as the engine, and is just as fundamentally well built as the day it rolled off the factory floor. The interior is mostly original but features fully functional air conditioning. The top half of the motor was overhauled in 2010 and is ready for many more years of duty. The exterior of this car is done in an original style beige paint job, which accents the interior very well. When you pop open the front for the spare tire, you can see how meticulously this car has been restored and kept. Options include AC, AM/FM/Cassette stereo, hub caps, seat belts and vinyl interior. Taking out a Volkswagen Beetle is like driving a time capsule and is always a welcome piece at any car show as well as a fantastic daily driver!
