This NICE 1968 VW Beetle is SO FUN to look at and drive. This Beetle is ROCK SOLID and a GORGEOUS daily driver! It appears to have always been maintained well. The mechanical was recently redone. The 1600 dual port engine was rebuilt, the suspension replaced and lowered, and transmission & brakes refreshed to start & stop this baby. Since the updates it has been driven moderately (2000 miles). This Beetle has one BAD ASS 1600 Dual Port motor. Just a solid mash on the pedal and the rear end comes to life almost throwing your head into the back of the seat and laying down a small patch of rubber (JUST WATCH THE VIDEO!!). This isn't a 400 horsepower Camaro, but horsepower and specs aside, this VW Beetle will put a MASSIVE grin on your face from ear to ear, and keep the Hamiltons in your wallet!

This Beetle screams like an AWESOME race track go cart! This Beetle will be the PRIDE and JOY of whoever owns it!! The curb appeal is very nice! On the inside it sports all new interior with new vinyl seats, carpet, and door panels. Other than that, it is the appeal of an original interior. Overall, it will impress any gear-head with solid TORQUE & HORSEPOWER!! Yet, this is a Beetle that has been restored to a condition to drive and enjoy. You won't be afraid to get out and dominate the roads with this amazing Volkswagen! Be sure to see the video below! If you have sound, turn it up! It the take-off sounds awesome!
