Patina'd, lowered, and ready to cruise - this 1964 Volkswagen Beetle offers some serious distinction even in a crowd of Bugs for a seriously affordable price.
<br><br> VW fans tend to separate the early cars (pre-1967) from the later cars, and so examples like this one remain at the top of many wish lists. We might have been able to call this color something close to Sea Blue a long time ago, but instead, it now has the perfect patina that everyone loves to see at the car shows. In fact, the aged-in appearance is the catalyst for getting to tell people the story we were told on this one. It was stored in a garage for 20+ years before being resurrected in 2018. There was a mechanical restoration to make this one a more comfortable driver, and that nature is reflected in the lowered stance and upgraded tires. But they left the overall classic style of the big headlight cars that just makes this such an endearing classic.
<br><br> The interior strikes the right balance of vintage and new. Fundamentals like the door panels, headliner, and carpeting have a fresh feel to make this a nice place to spend some time. And the seating has been completely redone to even provide better bolstering. There are also well-integrated upgrades like LED interior lighting and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/Bluetooth. But this also retains the right originality for vintage appeal. You see it across the full dash including the dual-spoke steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest and central VDO speedometer.
<br><br> The engine bay has the fresh look. There has been over 3k invested over the last few years with the professionals at Doug's Buggs and Bunnies. It includes an engine rebuild to make this a 1776cc unit. That's larger than anything VW offered on these Beetles, and so it feels nippy in the lightweight Bug. You get to take control over all of this thanks to a Freeway Flyer four-speed transmission, which as the name suggests, is geared to better handle modern highways and freeways. The servicing also included beams, torsion springs, steering damper, and bushings to keep this one feeling confident on the road. Those cool blue wheels draw attention to the wider stance and modern tires, and you even have a front disc brake upgrade. So this is the kind of total package that loves to run.
<br><br> Complete with build receipts, this is the ideal blend of custom, vintage, and affordable. You know you're supposed to pay a lot more for a head-turning Beetle like this, and so you also know how quick you have to be to snatch up this deal. Call today!!!
