“During the restoration process, the Ruby Red body’s patina was left intact,” the listing states. “Features include chrome bumpers with overriders, a driver-side mirror, a luggage rack, rubber-covered running boards, a single-piece rear window, and dual exhaust outlets.”
The interior features new white vinyl seat covers, door panels, and matching headliner complemented by black carpeting and body-color sheet metal. Amenities include a Bendix Sapphire I push-button radio, and a hidden Bluetooth audio system with four two-way coaxial speakers and a subwoofer.
This VW’s five-digit analog odometer shows 42 miles, reflective of the mileage accrued since the restoration was completed. The actual mileage on this Beetles’ chassis is unknown.
It’s powered by a 1,285-cc flat-four engine with a single-barrel carburetor. The engine is paired with a four-speed manual transmission.
The selling dealer states that the suspension has been upgraded. This Volkswagen Beetle rides on 15-inch five-spoke wheels with 135R15 Nankang CX668 front and 165/80R15 all-season rear tires.
The sale includes a clear title and a skateboard.
