4610 Pet Lane
Freshly restored, beautifully detailed, and just the right cool upgrades make this 1967 Volkswagen Beetle one of those high-quality classics that always attract attention.
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 really see the difference from the moment this car comes into view. The Grenada Red is fresh and glossy, and that allows the sunlight to highlight the smooth lines of the tight-fit body. This is a '67 Beetle, but aficionados will notice some desirable '66 features, like the larger headlights with the Porsche-style vents below. And the decklid has the exclusive style that includes the 1300 badge. Beautiful chrome bumpers, clear lenses, tinted glass, and detailed fender stone guards all prove just how comprehensive the work was on this one. And you just tell that they paid extra attention to details where you not only have white wheels and whitewall tires, but they coordinate with the fresh white body gaskets, too.
The interior was redone to give you the classic Beetle style but also integrates the best upgrades. For example, the front bucket seats have the classic low-back style, but upon closer inspection, you can see they have better bolstering for all-day comfort. And there's just something that's always attractive about an upgrade to fresh ultraleather. Shoulder seatbelts, a tuck and roll parcel shelf, and full carpeting are all part of this upgraded feeling of better quality. But with the thin classic steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest, smooth steel dash, and the vintage VDO gauges w/separate gas readout all give you that proper vintage VW tingle that feels like rolling nostalgia.
Part of a complete restoration means the engine bay looks like day-one, too. Fresh wires, fresh hoses, clean inner walls, and a tidy setup really let you know this is a newly rebuilt motor. And the polished fan shroud gives it the right touch of flair. And because of its freshness, you just know this 1300cc motor fires up with an eager air-cooled hum that makes these instantly endearing. These are far from the most powerful motors out there, but it's the engineering that makes the VW legendary. The rear-mounted block gives the car good traction, and it doesn't have the power loss associated with a large driveshaft. Also, you get to make the most out of this motor with the control of the four-speed manual transmission.
This is the fresh and beautiful Beetle that has the best vintage features and quality upgrades. So if you were looking to turn heads the moment you leave our showroom, this is the one. Call today!!!
