Description:

1960 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic EMPI Sportster

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1960 Empi Sportster. This is the one you want at the beach, lake, camp or around town. An Empi is also perfect as a tow companion for your motorhome. She’s guaranteed to start a conversation wherever you travel.


Rarity

Check your Popular Mechanics or Motor Trend magazine from the 50’s and 60’s and you’ll find ads for the EMPI kit to build in your garage. Wow! Everyone in the VW world knows EMPI as a supplier of quality aftermarket race parts. That’s still going on today but EMPI started out as one of the original converters of Volkswagens into what came to be known as Dune Buggies, building kits and cars years before Bruce Meyers came up with the Manx.


Exterior

The paint is shiny but not a high quality new car job. There are some flaws noticeable upon close inspection. Please review the video and see the photos. Folding windscreen with latches. Oak trim finished in Marine Spar varnish for long outdoor life. Nice chrome roll bar and accents. This is a solid steel body with that one of a kind EMPI look. These steel bodied EMPIs are tough with fenders that will easily support a man’s weight and a frame and body that can take the bumps and grinds that shatters fiberglass.


Interior

Beachy plush with an interior you can hose or vacuum out easily. Comfortable Volkswagen seats with seat belts. Storage behind the seats.


Floors

Floors are solid. See the photos


Engine

Great running 67 1500cc engine. Supertrap muffler and tube headers give it a great sound. Fresh service. Starts right up and drives great every time. Clean with nice detail work.

Transmission

4 speed manual transmission. Bus gear reduction transaxle provides great ground clearance and lots of torque


Service

Fresh service, turnkey and ready to go.


Trim

The trim is in good shape. See pics and video.


Glass

The windscreen is in good condition.


Odometer

The odometer shows 000 miles.


DMV / Documentation

The title is clear. She is licensed and tagged here in California through 2019. No smog is required for California residents. Very low cost Antique registration and insurance for most US States. A binder with pictures, detailed information, receipts and specs is included.


Comparables

There are very few / no EMPI Sportsters for sale at this time. Perhaps you can find a car that needs work or has seen the bite of the tin worm. Find an original EMPI in excellent condition with great eye appeal and you have a very few cars indeed. Given the extreme scarcity of available cars, this EMPI Sportster represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed immediately as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.


Inspection

Please come inspect this great EMPI before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 58 year old used car. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car.
