This 1959 Volkswagen Beetle has the unmistakable look and stance of a street machine, and the upgraded performance motor really proves this cool custom Bug is more than just for show.
These earlier VWs have their own certain kind of style. So the right people instantly recognize how cool this look is. It has all the right vintage details, like the roof rack, headlight eyelids, and windshield sunshade. There are even fender skirts that are available. Of course, it's not about how this one is vintage, but instead, how the look mixes the classic pieces with the car's aggression. The primer gray paint with a hint of patina on the rear gives you a truly cool hot rod/rat rod style. And not only do you get a standout set of 15-inch BRM wheels, but also the front is lowered to give this an aggressive forward-leaning stance.
Inside is pure rat rod cool. There's an awesome level of worn-in originality on the seats, door panels, headliner, and pretty much everywhere you look. This goes right down to the details, like the Wolfsburg crest steering wheel and factory AM radio that's on display. Of course, the addition of the SunPro tach on the column and EMPI shifter are reminders of the extra power of this VW.
The engine bay has an award-worthy level of tidiness, and it's all finished in a hammered steel finish. So the presentation perfectly conveys how there was a big investment in making this a seriously robust Beetle. This starts with a 2110cc motor. That's not only a larger displacement than any Beetle, but also a bigger than any Porsche 356, too! It's enhanced and fortified with straight-cut timing gears, chromoly pushrods, dual valve spring head, remote oil cooler, and topped with dual Weber 44 carbs. It's a seriously quick Bug that you take full control thanks to a four-speed manual transmission upgraded with a Kennedy Stage 1 clutch. Nice features like new brakes and newer tires complete a package that makes this quick VW particularly fun on the road.
This is a seriously cool build with an awesome style and some serious power. And the affordable price means you there's even room in the budget to make it even more your own. So don't miss this built Bug, call today!
