Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1965

Patina'd, lowered, and ready to cruise - this 1965 Volkswagen Beetle offers some serious distinction even in a crowd of Bugs. This car has spent most of its life in California, until it was moved to Oregon where it has been in storage for the past 20 years.The current owner merely had to do some deep cleaning and a major tune up to get this classic bug back on the road.
This car is proudly wearing an older custom paint job that has seen its share of summer days at the beach and has the perfect patina that everyone loves to see at the car shows. In fact, with the bumper overriders, larger wheels, and lowered stance (including the negative camber in the rear wheels) this car has that cool, modern VW hot rod aggression. But at its heart, it's still an early Bug. With the bigger headlights, the early cars are much more endearing, and the flat windshield and rubber running boards add a certain vintage appeal. Then you add in great elements like the roof rack, front accessory light, and the straight vintage body with complete trim. It perfectly merges the new and vintage worlds.
The interior of this classic two-tone VW is highlighted by newly upholstered seats front and rear including new updated foam padding and seat frame restoration on the '67 seats(1967 seats are more desirable for there adjustment and seat back release options) The interior looks strikingly original from the driver's seat including the two-spoke steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest and central VDO speedometer. The headliner, visors and sunroof crank are all present and in good condition. The seat belts have been updated to 3 point harness configuration for added safety. This is truly VW's simple chic at its finest.
The suspension has been mildly modified with an adjustable front beam and Atomwerks 2" drop plates in the rear to give this bug that lowered look without sacrificing the factory ride. All four corners are riding on new shocks, tires and wheels.
The engine bay is a very clean marvel of simplicity - The tidy 1300cc horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine with the appropriate one-barrel carburetor fires up easily first try every time with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor can. Original VW Classic Motor with: new hoses, spark plugs, wires, rotor and rotor cap - running with fresh oil and filter.
Battery, Brake Master Cylinder with hard lines,Heater Box to Body Hoses, Clutch and acceleratorcables are all New!
