Patina'd, lowered, and ready to cruise - this 1968 Volkswagen Beetle offers some serious distinction even in a crowd of Bugs... and it does it for a seriously affordable price.
<br><br> This has a fun patina style where the blue looks like it has been eroded by decades of road trips and beach sunsets. There are even cool details like the tow rope bumper and tarnished bronze wheels. But the clean glass, pliable weather stripping, and good body lines tell the full story where the worn-in appearance is really done to quite a solid Beetle. Then you add in great elements like the classic wood roof rack, a true surfboard, and the cool stickers of a wanderer. This Bug knows how to sell the vintage cruiser lifestyle all in the first impression.
<br><br> The interior has the right cruiser impression. There's newer upholstery for the front seats, newer door panels, and newer carpeting. That makes for a comfortable driver feeling. But this doesn't take the upgrades too far. Everything from the steering wheel to the rear bench has a feeling of originality. Sure, you can use the value price and deep aftermarket to replace some items, but we like how this is today. It's the right mix of a comfortable driver without losing the worn-in patina feel established by the exterior.
<br><br> VW's flat-four is the epitome of the easy-care classic, and the unique hum of this air-cooled motor is what keeps us enthusiasts. Plus, this 1600cc unit is the largest from the original series, and it now benefits from an upgrade to dual carburetors. In fact, the whole engine bay shows a nice investment to give it a clean style and a confident feeling. And you are in complete control thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Not only do you have a peppy motor, but there are also nice upgrades like front disc brakes and new grippy Yokohama tires. So the wanderer style on the exterior is reaffirmed by a solid driving impression.
<br><br> This is a nice blend of custom, vintage, and affordable. It makes for a fun class and a great deal. Call today!!!
