Two-toned, lowered, and ready to cruise - this 1965 Volkswagen Beetle offers some serious distinction even and plenty of custom upgrades...all while never losing the affordable attitude.

VW fans tend to separate the early cars (pre-1967) from the later cars, examples like this one remaining at the top of many wish lists. With the bigger headlights, the early cars are much more endearing. Plus, the bumpers w/overriders, flat windshield, and rubber running boards add a certain classic appeal. And if it's going to be vintage, it should be in a two-tone. The red and tan are glossy and attractive. Overall, it's a driver-quality appearance, and as the name suggests, it's the kind that you won't be afraid to take out on the road. After all, the other investments in this VW show that it loves to be a cruiser. The classic EMPI/Speedwell BRM wheels and lowered stance (including the negative camber in the rear wheels) give this car a cool VW hot rod aggression. And everything from the relocated side mirrors to the luggage rack is pure custom cruiser style.

This 1965 car's larger back window lets in more light, and it shows off all the details inside. There is a tastefully done oatmeal tan tweed that coordinates on the upholstery, door panels, and carpet for a comfortable and quality presentation. The parcel shelf, flower vase, and hand-laid pinstriping are a great way to represent the custom and vintage attitude that this one wants to put forward. And the upgraded steering wheel has pinstriping for style, and it has the grippy feel to really give you firm control.

The engine bay has quite a tidy style, and so you can instantly see that they made the right investments in maintaining this VW. And the clean undercarriage also shows off more of this well-respected overall impression. The 1200cc unit is a 1965-correct motor, and you'll spot plenty of newer pieces, like the alternator, heater hoses, belt, fuel pump, and carburetor. That's why this motor fires up readily with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor can. The wide modern tires and nibble suspension makes this feel good out on the road. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission makes you an integral part of getting the proper power out of the hardy powerhouse.

This is the perfect blend of custom, vintage, and affordable. You know you're supposed to pay a lot more for a head-turning Beetle like this, so then you also know how quick you have to be to snatch up this deal. Call today!!!
