This 1964 Volkswagen Beetle has been restored to radiate cool cruising style. With an extra clean look, and all the right period-correct pieces, it's already an award winner. But really, you want it because of how the appearance just loves to turn back the clock.
<br><br> Beetle aficionados cherish these years because of the craftsmanship that goes into the earlier cars. You see it everywhere from the vents under the headlights, to the "W" decklid (one of the last years for this desirable feature.) There has been a nice restoration investment in this car that shows in details like the beautiful full-length trim, correct/classic wheel covers, and bumpers with override bows. There are even some nice period-correct upgrades, like the roof rack with wooden slats. And the Sea Blue 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. So you can see why it took first place at the Dade City Bug Jam only a few years ago.
<br><br> The VW interior is simple, classic, and like a true time machine when you invest to restore it correctly. The exterior paint returns on all the metal pieces to make it look like this modern sleek blue was dipped at the factory. The door cards introduce a thoughtful two-tone beige package that you see on the upholstery and piping combo. And because all of this looks and feels fresh from a recent investment, you'll really love showing it off. Plus, it has all the right classic details, like the VDO speedometer with separate fuel gauge and the dual-spoke steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest in the center. The package tray under the dash is a thoughtful look, and it's a detail that's often missed on many other restored VWs. Even the correct AM radio is still there for display.
<br><br> The engine bay is a marvel of simplicity - just what these Beetles should be. The very tidy 1200cc horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine is so clean and detailed that you can read the correct decal on top of the air intake. It fires up easily with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor can. 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. The result is a nippy little car. But let's face it, when it looks this good, you want to be going slow enough so everyone gets a good stare at this bug.
<br><br> Complete with owner's manual, 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!
