1965 Volkswagen Beetle - ClassicBetter than VW ever made them
Fully Restored - over 2 years in restoration taken down to nuts and bolts and rebuilt from the ground up. About 5K miles since restoration. The car is a unique Standard model not the typical North American Deluxe model. The standard had alot more exposed and painted metal in the interior than the Deluxe and with the right color combination the interior is quite striking.
This car has been thoroughly (money no object) restored. No corners cut. Full pan off restoration with new floors welded in and seams all sealed. The full undercarriage was then coated with Por 15 and then bed lined. This Beetle will never rust. The entire body was stripped to bare metal inside and out and painted from scratch. No filler anywhere, ll metal car. No permanent modifications have been made to the car. All accessories are easily removable if that is preffered. Thorough (QUALITY Butyl) sound deadening in the front storage area, nder the carpet, ehind the headliner, n the doors and in the rear parcel shelf/storage area. There is NO roofing material used as sound deadening in this car.
The engine has 5K miles on it (crate 1600 Dual Port). There is a serpentine belt conversion, OS German Bosch SVDA Distributor, ully rebuilt Pict 34-3 Solex carburettor as well as a stainless mesh oil filter in an expanded sump plate. All Brake lines, oses and hydraulics were replaced, ll drums-shoes-hardware are new, ew steering box, ew kingpins, ew shocks, ew clutch, ew starter, ew generator, ew wiper motor/mechanism/arms, ew new new I cannot possibly list everything - This is a new car
All rubber components were replaced with German - window seals, oor seals, runk and hood seals, ires, tc...
New steering wheel, ll fittings in the interior are new, ew carpet and matching trunk carpet. The seats, rab handles and headliner are LEATHER and were custom made for this car at an upholsterer. The visors were custom made in the right color. New seat foams. The door cards are From TMI and Vinyl. The match is perfect. Factory fitted 3 point seatbelts were replaced with new.
Converted to 12 Volt Electronics and ALL wiring is new. Retrosound Radio is installed and it is the top of the line $450 model - Bluetooth compatible, SB in the glove box and connectors for expansion to add any audio equipment you like. Currently has 2 high end speakers in the rear shelf beneath the rear seats leading edge.
Accessories include - Solid billet aluminium running boards with powder coated ribbing, ud guards, amboo tray (Real and period), wans neck mirrors out of the UK, mpossible to find Robri stone guards I had to get from German eBay to the tune of $600 (Genuine), 56 Headlamp guards out of the UK, enetian blinds (period), oof and trunk racks are NOT the cheap EMPI units, hey were made in California and I ordered them specifically with the red tint in the Marine Lacquer and a highly polished triple plated finish to set off the Anthracite paint, full set of Flying cog Hubcaps that were over 1K alone for the set in fresh chrome and finally a small set of original Hella Turn signal indicators off of the earlier cars - Again NO MODIFICATION was necessary to install these items. They can be easily removed. Included new tool roll and the jack has been restored and is in it's correct location hidden by the spare.
I cannot list everything done to the car - If a component could not be brought to new condition in restoration it was replaced with the highest quality component available not the cheapest.
This is the car for someone who is looking for a new/old Beetle.
This is a new Beetle with 5K miles on it. Over 50K spent - nothing was allowed to compromise the quality of the restoration including cost. This Beetle and the attention to detail will highly impress anyone.
I can help with national or international shipping if that is required
