Sleek, lightweight, powerful, and an absolute ton of fun - this 1956 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is a custom build that will impress from the fit of the body to the shine of the motor. It all makes for a derailed roadster that you'll love to dive.


This custom Volksrod announces it's something special the moment it comes into view. Sure, bright red is always a bold way to make an entrance, but this one is also super-sleek. The metal body with fiberglass rear is an almost seamless design. The front end is uncluttered by a bumper or accessories, so it's a unique mix of Ford Model A hot rod and a Porsche 356 Speedster. No door handles gratuitous trim keep the profile extra sleek, and the sunlight just seems to love to dance around the curves of the rear. The black and silver pinstriping package is pure custom car cool. Plus, you have 17-inch Budnik wheels, suicide doors, frenched tail lights, and an air scoop in the rear to remind you where the motor is.


The black roof really highlights the low windshield, and it gives this the profile like a Porsche Speedster. But as good as this looks in place, a roadster like this was meant to be open to the world. That way you can show off the custom red interior. You can tell this was thoughtfully laid out just by the details, like the how there's a thin black stripe similar to the exterior in the doors, and there's a cool silver and black racing stripe that not only goes over the driver's seat, but also the steering wheel, roll bar, and rear seat. This is absolutely a driver's machine with well-bolstered front bucket seats (the rear is probably best used for storage.) You also have race-ready features like the four-point harnesses and a comprehensive roll cage that strengthens the already sturdy Beetle pan. There's also a sports steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column, a push-button start, and a custom-formed dash full of AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges.


The motor is exactly what you want in a custom sports car like this. The engine bay has the kind of ultra tidy and bright style that tells you they know you're going to be showing it off. And the hardy VW-based flat-four has been enlarged and upgraded. This is a 2443cc engine - something larger than ever offered by VW or Porsche. And it has a twin set of dual-barrel carbs, a Bergman 86mm full circle crankshaft, Cima 94mm pistons, Total Seal rings, FK10 camshaft, Bergman D-port heads, and an MSD 6AL ignition. Ceramic-coated headers let this exhale with added power and a terrific tune from the custom dual exhaust. The full package is estimated to produce 200 horsepower, and in a 1,300-lbs machine, that makes for impressive acceleration and fun. And you have complete control over this mighty motor thanks to the hardy four-speed manual transmission. You also have a fully independent suspension, adjustable coilovers, Mustang II steering box, grippy ZR-rated tires, and four-wheel disc brakes.


This is an impressive full custom build. And you'd expect to pay a ton more for something this sleek done in steel. So you know you need to hurry up to catch this roadster. Call today!!!

General Terms

Terms & Conditions

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

Fees: A documentation fee of $299 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

Availability: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

Contact: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

Inspection: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

Payment: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers.

Shipping: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

Drive it Home: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility. Documents & Vehicle Titles: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN Verification: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

Mileage: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

Condition: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.

AS-IS: All vehicles are sold "AS IS" and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!

DISCLAIMER: This site and all advertising information may be updated without notice whenever new information is obtained and may contain mistakes and inaccuracies. Information is provided to the best of our knowledge and we make no warranty or representation regarding the accuracy, truth, or reliability of such information. We cannot be responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by the consignor/seller of the vehicle. We strive to perform extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible that there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent. All vehicles are sold AS-IS with no warranties expressed or implied.

Fees and Taxes

Sales tax, title, license fee, registration fee, dealer documentary fee, finance charges, emission testing fees, and compliance fees are additional to the advertised price. Vehicle is listed locally, we reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
