The exterior paint on this VW shines beautifully and is a very vibrant bright red that looks awesome. The black trim you see on the car is all professionally powdercoated in gloss black and it too looks awesome. Every piece of chrome was done including the door handles, umpers, as cap and even the convertible top frame was disassembled, edia blasted then powdercoated too look like brand new.
The interior is in exceptional condition with new seats, arpet and a brand new convertible top, he car has a great stereo system with Blaupunkt speakers and a amplifier under the hood. The car has original slide in window frames and the drivers door window has been customized with sliding plexi glass so you can open a window with the frames in place.
The motor runs great and is currently set up with a push button start that starts every time. The car runs great on both city streets and highways. The clutch feels great and the brakes stop as they should. The suspension is lowered and has adjustable front air shocks to lift and lower the front end to your desired height. The wheels are 17" BRM wheels and they look fabulous on a nice set of new low profile tires.
