For Sale: 1969 Volkswagen Beetle in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer an awesome 1969 VW Baja Beetle. Baja Bugs became popular in the 1960s as an affordable way to go off-road. Beetles offered a lightweight platform to modify and turn into off road machines. Common modifications include cutting or replacing fenders to allow for more ground clearance. Typically engines were modified, usually adding dual port heads. Suspension modifications often included longer travel shocks to cope with rough terrain. This particular Baja Bug has been recently completely restored about 500 miles ago. The body received new floorboards, heater channels, pan gasket, front "hat", rocker panels and floor vent covers. The body was painted in May 2016 in a beautiful white and blue two tone. Fiberglass fenders have been added for the "cut" look which also offers better ground clearance. Powering this bad boy is a 1,835cc professionally built engine with electronic ignition, a 60 amp alternator, and a screaming Stinger exhaust with baffle. It's safe to say this Baja Bug has quite a few more ponies than it did with the stock engine. This engine mates up to a freshly rebuilt transaxle which shifts nicely and makes for a fun driving experience. This one sits on traditional "Jackman" wheels wrapped in fresh Cooper tires. Open the door and you'll find a beautifully finished interior featuring new Oatmeal loop carpet, new headliner, and light buckskin seats. This interior scheme contracts beautifully with the exterior colors. This bug is a beautifully restored piece which is just begging to be run around town, or out to the dunes.
