1966 CLASSIC VW BETTLE PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED DESIRABLE SUNROOF

This car is a beautifully restored 1966 CLASSIC VW BEETLE. It has not seen rain since its restoration in 2009 and it has been garaged and carefully maintained.

It was originally equipped with a 1300cc motor, but it was replaced with a remanufactured 1600cc motor from 1970 for some extra power. The carburetor is a new Solex unit with a modern air filter for better performance.

As far as mechanically, it starts easily, and the drive train responds beautifully as you would expect from a car restored to this standard. The suspension is very sure-footed on the road and when you hit a bump, it responds properly without rattles or shudders. It was converted to front disc brakes and it gives it excellent braking capabilities under all conditions. Way better than drums!

The body work performed on this car is of excellent quality and looks amazing; this is the handiwork of a superior shop. The color is an original VW color (Sea Blue). Most of the chrome in this car is new, but some of the chrome hardware is original (like the window cranks and interior door handles). The original chrome shows a little bit of pitting, but it gives a little bit of patina and charm. This restoration is from 2009, so naturally, there may be a little bit of surface rust here and there in the undercarriage, the exhaust pipes, and on the pan. Nothing to worry about.

Inside, the car has an incredible amount of charm, the sunroof gives it a great airy feel. An original working radio is included.
