AWESOME BUILD & HIGHLY DETAILED! 1915cc, GEX PRO STREET TRANS, LONG SPEC SHEET

Beetle guys, if you're going to modify your early VW, this is how you do it right. This 1971 Volkswagen Beetle looks right, sits right, has an awesome interior, and with a relatively burly engine, is a hoot to drive.

To most folks, a Beetle is a Beetle, right? But when you start looking at true enthusiasts, you find that there are those who like stock and those who like to do their own thing. Custom built Bugs like this are red hot collectables and with a body-off restoration in 2012, it's one of the very finest we've ever seen. It wears a simply wonderful shade of Bahama Blue that's low-key and sophisticated on the playful Beetle shape, but also emphasizes the car's custom look in a very big way. It's not chopped, channeled, or altered in anyway, but this little car just grabs your attention and won't let go. Maybe it's the beautifully bulbous headlights, the almost delicate Euro-style bumpers, and the tiny marker lamps on the rear fenders. The fenders are fiberglass replicas that give it an early look, and the paint is good enough to have won awards at a very high level. The stance, of course, helps with that whole custom theme, and the bodywork was done by pros who really knew their ... Please ask for the full description.

AWESOME BUILD & HIGHLY DETAILED! 1915cc, GEX PRO STREET TRANS, LONG SPEC SHEET

Beetle guys, if you're going to modify your early VW, this is how you do it right. This 1971 Volkswagen Beetle looks right, sits right, has an awesome interior, and with a relatively burly engine, is a hoot to drive.

To most folks, a Beetle is a Beetle, right? But when you start looking at true enthusiasts, you find that there are those who like stock and those who like to do their own thing. Custom built Bugs like this are red hot collectables and with a body-off restoration in 2012, it's one of the very finest we've ever seen. It wears a simply wonderful shade of Bahama Blue that's low-key and sophisticated on the playful Beetle shape, but also emphasizes the car's custom look in a very big way. It's not chopped, channeled, or altered in anyway, but this little car just grabs your attention and won't let go. Maybe it's the beautifully bulbous headlights, the almost delicate Euro-style bumpers, and the tiny marker lamps on the rear fenders. The fenders are fiberglass replicas that give it an early look, and the paint is good enough to have won awards at a very high level. The stance, of course, helps with that whole custom theme, and the bodywork was done by pros who really knew their stuff, so it'll stand up to even close scrutiny at a car show.

The interior has the same kind of look, vintage, kind of stock, but with a custom touch. The seats immediately jump out at you as being custom low-back buckets (Scat Pro 90s) that are far more comfortable than the original chairs. The tan upholstery fits and with the light blue bodywork, the car looks simply spectacular. The rear bench was removed and in its place there's a custom storage box with built-in speakers, a handy upgrade. Stock-style door panels use the same materials for a consistent look, and oatmeal carpets add texture. Original VWs had minimal instrumentation, but during the makeover, this Beetle received a billet gauge panel full of VDO and Auto Meter instruments that somehow look like they were born there. There's also an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the center of the dash, and the spare gauges in the glove box monitor the Air Ride suspension that's a critical part of this car's look and feel. A trick shifter manages a 4-speed GEX Pro Street transmission with a super differential and makes a notable difference (anything is an improvement over the vague original), and the front trunk area is neatly done with great attention to detail.

A 1915 cc AE engine powers this Beetle, and while it isn't muscle car powerful, it's a blast to drive and feels nimble and quick on the street. It features IAP Kuhltek 044 heads, a 69mm counter-weighted crank, Engle 110 cam, and an electronic ignition system. Twin HPMX 40 carburetors handle induction duties and there's a 55 amp alternator powered by a serpentine pulley for reliability. Great workmanship and precise assembly make the rear engine compartment look good, and bulletproof reliability means that it'll run this well practically forever. A throaty exhaust system gives it that traditional Beetle whistle with an edge, and as long as you're looking around under there, take a moment to note just how clean the pans are; they were stripped bare and refinished. The suspension is augmented with an AirKewld air suspension up front and a lowered rear suspension with a 3/4-inch EMPI sway bar. And with those flashy EMPI wheels and staggered 175/55/15 front and 195/60/15 rear tires, it almost has a hot-rod feel.

A very cool little VW done to a very high level using the best parts. They don't get much better than this, and it'll delight both traditional VW fans and customizers alike. Call today!
