Description:

For millions of people, the Volkswagen Beetle was their first automobile. Today, the Beetle is an equally great starter hobby car, with examples like this 1969 model still available for a very affordable price. It gives you a great old car feel, unparalleled parts and knowledge support, and an undeniable appeal that puts a smile on everyone''s face. Simple is good when you''re a Beetle fan, and while this lovely Bug shows just the right amount of patina, it also carries a highly unusual color combination that''s actually quite striking. Well, white isn''t all that unusual, but the red interior looks fantastic. But before we go there, let''s take a closer look at the bodywork, which remains excellent. Fit and finish on the Beetle were actually very good, and while rumors of them floating because they sealed up so well were probably slightly exaggerated, there''s no denying that this one fits together very well. The early Beetle styling cues such as the small taillights, chrome-rimmed headlights, and simple chrome bumpers are all present and accounted for, and still in great shape. If you like the traditional Beetle look, you''re going to love this car. As I mentioned, the interior makes this Bug something special, with red in place of the usual black. Nicely restored several years ago, it shows very little wear, because, well, the materials used in Beetles wear like iron. The distinctive textured vinyl seats are supportive enough for an all-day drive, and matching door panels were installed at the same time. Instrumentation is simple, with a round speedometer with an integral gas gauge tucked above the odometer. Simple gray carpets with rubber floor mats make it durable, and you''ll note that there''s an unusual AM/FM radio in the dash, which was still an option in 1969. The trunk area is also very clean, and nicely finished with more gray carpet . If you''re looking for a clean Bug, this is it. Mechanically, the Bug is familiar to anyone who has even a passing interest in cars. The air-cooled flat-four starts with the characteristic exhaust note, and under the decklid shows a lot of originality and recent maintenance. All the heating tubes are in place, which you don''t often find on older Beetles, and it looks quite original. Beetles are famous for their bulletproof reliability, and this one is no exception, as it starts every time and drives extremely well. Performance is modest, even with the 4-speed manual transmission, but that''s the whole point of an old car: to be transported to a different era. This one still carries its original floor pan, which is solid, and all the original suspension and brake components have been serviced properly over the years. Color-matched steel wheels with bright hubcaps carry 165R15 radials with a lot of life left in them. A very clean early Beetle with no issues and a great color combination. Get into the hobby today without a big investment. Call now! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
