Car description

This 1957 Volkswagen Beetle is a freshly restored example that has less than 500 miles on it since completion. They have taken the time and money to create a unique classic that keeps all the look you love of an earlier bug, and it mixes in style, power, and comfort. That makes for the ideal cruising VW that's ready to hit the streets right now.

This has the great early VW pieces we love to look for, like the oval back window, Wolfsburg crest in the front trim, little dual grilles in the front, big headlights, small taillights, and the W decklid. But the appeal here is much more than just a classic VW. It has been given a comprehensive restoration within the last six months and 500 miles. It includes an upgrade to this terrific shade of blue with a shine that loves to highlight the Beetle's iconic curves. And speaking of shine, there's an upgraded brightwork package. It adds extra style in places like the nicely re-done bumper as well as the upgraded trim and chip guards along the running boards. The shine also adds some extra sporty style with the large dual exhaust tips and 15-inch polished wheels that are part of a more aggressive stance. It all makes for a crisp and clean VW of distinction.

The interior instantly reminds you that a Beetle can be all about a custom experience. There's a great-looking two-tone tan and brown on the seats and door panels. Plus, the carpeting looks like you mixed two colors to get this shade of brown. It all has a fresh feeling thanks to the fresh investment. And the details are nice everywhere, including the seatbelts and bright trim accents. There's even a retro-style radio that gives you a classic look but a modern digital AM/FM tuner for proper driving tunes. And speaking of driving, you can really tell they made this one for cruising. The leather-wrapped EMPI steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and the EMPI shifter has a crisp action for the four-speed. And the dash is now dominated by a full Speedhut package that gives you far more info than the factory did - including a handy tach.

You see more of this car's clean look in the engine bay. And while the tidy appearance and polished components make it ready to show off, once again, this car proves it was also built for driving. This starts with a 1500cc unit, which was larger than what the factory offered in '57. Plus, the consignor states the big bore kit gives this 1641cc total. It also has also been upgraded with a dual set of Dellorto carbs, O-ringed heads, solid rocker shafts, and an alternator with 12-volt system. It fires up cleanly, like a freshly restored car should. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see just how fresh this car is everywhere. Plus, you'll spot the upgraded front disc brakes.

This is the classic VW with all the right modern investments. So if you love a fresh build with everything already done the way you want, don't miss this VW. Call today!!!
