You are bidding on the chance to assume ownership of "Bristol the Beetle Bug"!! This car came out of Tennessee and has had the same owner since 1988. The owner worked for the Postal Service and used the car to drive to work on nice days and weekends. Upon retirement they had the car restored. They recently decided to sell the car. I had the opportunity to buy it so I jumped on it. She couldn't even watch me pull out the driveway. She loved this car and gave it a great home for many years and yes it has only 56,900 actual miles. They had it stored in a climate controlled garage that was nice enough to eat off the floor. This is going to make someone a great weekend show/cruiser bug!
Exterior- I don't think outside of trailered show queens I have seen a paint job so slick. I cant even imagine the hours they have in this car to get this type of finish. The paint is Plymouth Prowler Red and its beautiful. Has a hint of orange in sunlight. The paint is near perfection. The car is loaded with customs including LED lighting, flush taillights, trunk popper system (shaved handle), custom mirrors, EMPI running boards and mag wheels. This bug has had a pampered life. The previuos owner told me there was no patching/rust repair when doing the restoration. The car was solid from the start. I think you would be hard pressed to find a car you can still get out and drive in this quality!
Interior- From the carpet, door panels, seats and dash everything looks new. The car has a kickin' Pioneer sound system that sounds amazing. GT Grant steering wheel and custom console. This car has new rubber seals all the way around from door to window jams and beyond. Speedometer and odometer work. The car has seat belts all the way around. Very nice looking and comfortable interior.
Mechanical- Let me start by saying I have put 600+ miles on this car in the past month. The car has 56,190 miles on it when I purchased it. I drove it 200+ miles home through the mountains of eastern Kentucky. I have had zero issues with the car. The engine runs great, starts right up every time. The car has an electric fuel pump. When the car was restored the engine was rebuilt and has a big bore kit taking it to 1649cc. Also has a 2bbl weber carburetor. Still from what I read its a 60hp +/- car. Not going anywhere fast but it has plenty of power for getting out on the open road and cruising the highways. The car drives straight as can be even at 70mph. All new tires and suspension really makes it a comfortable ride.
Disclosures- I'd say the car has 2000 +/- miles since restoration. It's in driving show car quality. A couple of chips but very small. One small bubble smaller than quarter on rear down by exhaust. These are hardly noticeable but I like to disclose everything. (see last pic) Seems one of the pullys makes some noise but has done it since I've owned it. I would not be afraid to drive this car anywhere. Its a #2 car all day. That is the fun part about it, nice enough to be one of the best cars at you local cruise in but not too nice that you can drive and enjoy it!
