This is one cool custom bug, done SoCal style. It performs too. It has a bigger, performance built motor and the exhaust sounds like a big block Chevy.

EXTERIOR: What a great looker. It's dropped 2 1/2 inches for a cool stance. The body has been cleaned up by removing trim. The turnsignals were removed from on top of the fenders and relocated below the headlights with billet grills. The headlights are the earlier slant back style. The front bumper was removed. The stainless body moldings were removed. The rear fenders have completely custom taillights that were cut on a waterjet in the shape of VW. The hood has the louvers filled in and the extension brackets on the hinges. Rear bumper was removed. Beautiful dark blue metallic paint. It has custom finned aluminum running boards with matching sill plates. The rack on the roof is all stainless and has a real surf board. All the gaskets and weatherstrips were replaced. The windshield is new. It has as a billet mirror. Custom 15 inch aluminum Empi wheels with blue trim. Turn signals and brake lights are LED.

INTERIOR: Redone floor to ceiling. The 4 racing bucket seats give it a cool look. There are 3 point seat belts for each one of them. Down on the floors is new carpet and a full set of beetle floor mats. There is a custom center console with a Scat Pack shifter with a chrome T-handle. The dash trim is in excellent shape. There's a custom billet steering wheel and next to that is a Sport Comp Monster tachometer with shift light. The Pioneer stereo is hooked to two Planet Audio subwoofers, amp, 6x9 speakers and 5 inch round speakers. Door panels and armrests look new, has billet window cranks. Headliner and visors are new. Custom pedals The inside metal is painted like the outside.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Better put your sunglasses on, all the chrome will blind you! Performance built 1915cc motor with Engle cam, 69 mm crank, performance 94 mm pistons, big valve heads and dual Weber 40 mm 2 barrel carbs. It has aftermarket oil breather system. The engine bay itself has chrome insert panels. It has a big chrome engine covers, alternator, coil and air cleaners.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It's finished nicely. There is a new insulation pad under the carpet mat. New plastic firewall cover. The spare tire has a cover. There is also a tool pouch and jack.

UNDERSIDE: 2 1/2 lowered suspension. The front spindles and shocks were replaced. It has coilover shocks in back. Custom exhaust has a polished stainless Empi muffler.

This is a fun car. Something about the VWs, people really enjoy them. This is a real cool example of one.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
