1966 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Base

1966 VW Classic Beetle – All Original!

It is common knowledge that the chrome bumper Beetles are the true collectible models, and that they have skyrocketed in value. So which of these is considered the best? For many VW aficionados it’s the 1966 because of its higher-revving engine that makes this model year more fun and sporty to drive. And that is what’s you’ll find on this example: the original 1300 cc engine with only 78k miles from new.

The ownership of this prized car is known (only 2 owners), so the history and mileage can be authenticated.

In all respects, this is an exceptional, collector-quality Beetle, as it is entirely original except for one high-quality repaint in its original color, Rubin Red L456. That means that all its sheet metal, floors, trunk, interior, headliner, carpets, etc. are original and they all are in excellent condition. Even the radio is original and it works! A genuine survivor car.

Mechanically the car is perfect and recently completed a 200-mile trip without a glitch. The engine runs smoothly and burns no oil; the gears shift smoothly with all synchros working perfectly, clutch and brakes are excellent, and all the instruments, lights (even the interior light!) work. She's a pleasure to drive and feels like it was new.

If you’ve always wanted a Beetle, or the thought of owning the most practical and trouble-free collector car sounds appealing, this may be the finest example on offer.
