Details

Taking a ride in this 1969 Volkswagen Beetle convertible is a nostalgic trip into the past and reminiscent of a time when the Beetle was a common site on every road. Well on its way to becoming one of the most produced vehicles of all time, the Beetle has cemented itself in popular culture for millions of people as the vehicle that helped them start out in life as young adults. For a great number of people, the Beetle was the car of their youth, the first car for a young married couple and for their kids, the car they grew up in. This fully restored 1969 Volkswagen Beetle is an excellent example and reminder of that time.

Fully restored with a rebuilt engine, this 1969 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible runs and drives extremely well. The driving and handling of this vehicle is great thanks to the new brakes, a new rebuilt front end and newer tires all around wrapping attractive Karmann Ghia wheels. On the exterior the polpular yellow paint extenuates the straight body lines and contours of the classic Beetle design. Underneath this vehicle is extremely clean and reflects the quality of the rest of the car, the floor pans were properly replaced and are new at the time of restoration. On the interior, the iconic VW Beetle interior material has been restored as well and even includes that memorable VW smell. According to the consignor, this yellow bug is in excellent condition. The top was also replaced at the time of restoration, but the most enjoyable part of this Beetle is a ride with the top down on a sunny day.

Sold with a registration.
