MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present another early and seldom-seen black Volkswagen Beetle. Nineteen fifty-seven was the final model year for the original oval rear window. This is an original California Beetle which has been restored inside and out.
The car’s black paint and trim are in overall excellent shape with some minor blemishes noticeable on close inspection. The vehicle’s lights are in very good condition and include the Hella parking lamps paired with Sylvania halogen headlights. Car rolls on Continental tires, size 155/60R15 in front and 195/60R15 in back, surrounding Fuchs wheels. Atop the roof rests a metal-and-dark-wood roof rack for extra cargo capacity. All body panels are straight and the engine bay is tidy. The car’s bumpers with overriders are in excellent shape.
Under the rear hood is a full rebuilt 1600 cc (1.6L) dual-port motor linked to a four-speed manual transmission that features a new clutch. Engine has new parts – an alternator and dual EMPI carburetors. Car features and adjustable front beam with lowered spindles and disc brakes.
Inside, the car’s parchment interior is eye-catching and contrasts greatly with the black exterior. The front buckets are in excellent order, the contrasting black carpet is in very good shape, as are the parchment-colored headliner, black dashboard and parchment-colored, two-spoke steering wheel and door panels. The horn is inoperable but the car’s mirrors in good condition, as is the shifter. Completing the interior is a stereo with MP3 player, in-dash FM radio receiver that supports Bluetooth and USB with remote control.
The Volkswagen Beetle (officially the Volkswagen Type 1, informally in Germany the Volkswagen Käfer, in Poland the Volkswagen Garbus and in the U.S. the Volkswagen Bug) is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engine economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003.
Dr. Ferdinand Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalize the design. The result was one of the first rear-engined cars since the Brass Era. With 21,529,464 produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made.
