OVAL WINDOW, AIR-COOLED 1600CC FLAT-4, 4SPD TRANS, RUNS/DRIVES GR8, SHARP LOOKIN
Open-top, lowered, and ready to cruise... This 1957 Volkswagen Beetle offers some serious distinction even in a crowd of Bugs, and does it for quite a nice price.
Beetle aficionados cherish these years because of the craftsmanship that goes into the earlier cars, including the covered headlights, mini grilles in the front, "W" decklid, and the overall fit and finish. Plus, '57 was the last year of the oval rear window. And this one is really ready to hit the road with a lowered stance on those distinct green wheels, luggage rack on the back, and pearl metallic white that looks terrific when the sunlight makes it pop. Speaking of the sunshine, we know you love the full-length ragtop sunroof.
Inside the classic VW interior looks nice from a quality presentation. Brown seats with dark brown piping coordinate with pieces like the door panels and square weave carpeting. The whole setup looks strikingly original from the driver's seat, including details like the parcel shelf under the dash and dual-spoke steering wheel with Wolfsburg city crest proudly affixed to the center. They even updated a rare feature for '57 with the VDO center-mounted tach.
The engine bay is a very clean marvel of simplicity - just what these Beetles should be. It's upgraded to a 1600cc unit (the largest of the Beetle run) and even has a point-less ignition. It's a quality setup where the consignor also had the confidence to use this VW for road trips. The rear-mounted motor gives the car good traction, and doesn't have the power loss associated with a large driveshaft. The four-cylinder is built to be stout and run all day without overheating thanks to air cooling. Also, you get to make the most out of this motor with the control of the four-speed manual transmission. The result is a nippy little car. But let's face it, when it looks this good, you want to be going slow enough so everyone gets a good stare at your Bug.
This is the perfect blend of custom, vintage, and affordable. You know you're supposed to pay a lot more for a head-turning Beetle like this, so then you also know how quick you have to be to snatch up this deal. Call now!
