Beetle 1965

Title Status --
Exterior Color Green
Interior Color Beige


This 1965 Volkswagen Beetle has been freshly restored to radiate cool cruising style. With an extra clean look - right down to the undercarriage - and a few well-placed upgrades, this is the kind of classic that you'll love driving to the shows and likely fill the trunk with a few awards.

This car is fresh from a restoration in Brazil... and when we say fresh, we mean it looks and feels fresh off the boat. Some of the best restorations for VWs happen in South America these days (after all, they got to live with the Beetle even longer than we did!) And you can see the difference from the moment this car comes into view. The green paint is the true showstopper. It's a professional application that has the kind of gloss and shine that really makes this classic a sunny day friend. And there are beautiful brightwork details, like the headlight eyelids, window rainguards, and Porsche-like front fender vents. And an earlier Beetle wouldn't be complete with big chrome bumpers featuring overriders. And those wheels resemble the classic VW sport units, but they are modern 17-inch alloys. They not only give this a cool stance, but also they let you fit better modern tires.

The interior has a vintage look, but a freshness that's an instant reminder that you'll be the first person to spend any real time here since the restoration. The plush carpeting, supple upholstery, quality paint, taut headliner, and all the other investments in new materials does a great job of elevating the experience without taking away the basic Beetle charm. After all, you still have the skinny white steering wheel, classic VDO gauge (in KM), and separate gas readout that are on early VWs.

The engine bay is another big reminder of how fresh and detailed the restoration is. After all, Volkswagen didn't even make them this nice at the factory. You can tell the tidy presentation was made to display, and so you'll proudly show off the full polished presentation. The 1200cc horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine fires up easily with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor can. You get to make the most out of this motor with the control of the four-speed manual transmission. And with the modern Hankook Ventus V12 Evo tires, this classic VW feels surefooted and nimble.

This is a true classic restored to an upper-echelon standard. So if you're ready to stand out with a shining vintage standard, call today!
