Driven 248 miles since completing restoration in April 2021.
Odometer reading is 56,800 (probably turned over at least once).
First year for the curved windshield, padded dash, and larger trunk. Original owner took great care of this car since the body is mated to the rust-free, numbers matching floor pan (rare for a 70's era bug). Original sheet metal except for one rear fender. All original glass (except windshield). Purchased in 2019 from 3rd owner as a neglected basket case. Rolling restoration completed in April 2021 with an odometer reading of 56,600.
Professionally rebuilt dual port 1600cc with dual carbs, doghouse fan shroud, type 4 oil cooler,
screw-on oil filter, serpentine pulleys, Empi clutch, and ceramic header with dual quiet mufflers.
IRS w/“Freeway Flyer” 4.12:1 gearbox. .89:1 final drive ratio in 4th gear.
.89 final drive ratio, essentially making it a 366:1
Adjustable front struts. Empi-style 8-spoke aluminum rims with new Douglas tires.
Ice Blue Metallic / clear coat. Cal-look window seals. Roof Rack.
Empi T-handle, short-throw shifter with reverse lock-out, center console,
and Pioneer stereo with Kenwood amp.
This classic VW was purpose-built with quality parts to be a reliable
daily driver, that also shows well at events and cruise nights.
This bug drives great, sounds good and turns heads wherever we go.
It starts easily, runs strong and does not leak!
Comes with tow bar and car cover. The photos have a weird hue from all of the smoke in the sky today. This car was listed before but with a bigger engine and T-bar bumpers. Turns out people aren't interested in a hotrod Super Beetle so I put the new stock 1600 engine in and added new bumpers. Drives like a dream and goes down the highway great. Here is a link to a short youtube video walk around including cold start: https://youtu.be/iP36WwI4IPE
Here is the link for a very detailed video with commentary: https://youtu.be/CKB-6D6s9Bw (obviously, the bumpers and engine are different).
Interested parties are encouraged to see the car in person before bidding. Buyer responsible for pickup/shipping...I can help with whatever coordination is needed on this end. Thanks for looking!
