This 1968 Volkswagen Beetle has a Pabst Blue Ribbon theme, but you could be a wine drinker and still see the appeal here. After all, there's just something extra cool about a patina classic with the right custom touches...especially when offered at a value price.
This VW has a fun look and an aged-in style that makes it a car that looks like it has earned the right to cruise everywhere. Most of the patina is sealed in with a clearcoat. Plus, there are more paint details like plenty of red pinstriping and the Pabst Blue Ribbon graphics painted on the doors. A nice touch is painting the bumpers and running boards white. It gives this the unique look like it's a beer delivery truck's little brother. It also adds more attention to the coordinating white wheels, and how those extra wide rear tires give it an awesome stance.
The interior is basic, and that's part of the cool theme. The exposed welds and Blue Ribbon hops sacks for door panels are part of the rat rod fun. However, if you're looking for added creature comforts, you also can see this is a blank slate to get creative. And just about every component you'd want to personalize is surprisingly affordable in the deep availability of VW catalogs. And all your essentials are already in place, like the VDO readout and classic steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest.
Under the rear hatch is the famous flat-four powerhouse. It's a desirable dual-port motor, which is also correct for the era. This has an honest look of a true driver that has been given good maintenance along the way, including a newer fuel pump, fuel filter, and carburetor. It fires up nicely with an eagerness to hit the road. And features like the four-speed manual transmission, independent suspension, and upgraded tire package make for a fun driving classic.
There's a touch of rat rod feeling in this Beetle, and that means it's a fun bare bones cruiser as it is. And the affordable price means you can personalize it even further if you like. So you can add an extra comfy interior to contrast the patina exterior, or maybe maximize the power components on the hardy flat-four for a true rat rod street machine. The large Beetle community makes the possibilities nearly endless, especially when you have something so distinct from day one. Call today!!!
