DESCRIPTION

This 1965 Volkswagen Beetle is a cool two-tone classic that has been given the right upgrades to be a great custom cruiser without losing any of that vintage style you love.

This one has something to offer from every angle. It all starts with the paint package. The two-tone seems inspired by classic VW colors like Iceland Green and Nile Beige, but it's really a modern application done within the last decade. In fact, there has been a solid investment in the whole car in 2012, and it remains looking impressive today. You have the desirable earlier Bug items like the fender vents, covered headlights, a correct mid-1960s decklid, and two-tone wheels with classic smooth and shining VW hubcaps. Plus, there's some added attitude from the lowered suspension, tinted glass, large dual exhaust tips, and cleanly deleted bumpers (that also makes it easy if you want to do a nerf bar upgrade.)

The classic creamy beige color continues inside, and now it's joined by a tasteful brown. There is a thoughtful sense of style where you see clean paint on the simple seat frames, smooth door panels with quality handles, and good carpeting throughout. So it really has the right classic feeling. You'll appreciate the quality details everywhere from the pliable weather-stripping to the separate VDO fuel gauges that came on these earlier VWs. And we especially like how the classic AM radio is still on display, but your real driving music is coming from the AM/FM/CD stereo in the glovebox. Even the trunk looks good with a clean style and a fully detailed spare.

The everlasting appeal of the Beetle comes from the hardy air-cooled flat-four motor in the back. The 1300cc unit was rebuilt as part of the 2012 restoration. So it has a clean style that also upholds the solid running tradition. The four-speed manual transmission was also rebuilt at the time and was outfitted with highway-friendly gears. And because you're really going to want to drive this classic, they even upgraded it with front disc brakes.

This two-tone VW was restored to give you a head-turning classic that's easier to show off near or far. So if you've been looking for a cruiser-ready Beetle, call today!
