With its factory-correct color combo, numbers-matching motor, and very stock style, this 1969 Volkswagen beetle is a cool cruising classic with plenty of vintage appeal.
We are told the consignor is the third owner of this car, and that's always impressive on a classic that's crossed the half-century mark. The body lines show good care, and there was even a respray of the factory-correct Savanna Beige. This keeps a very stock style with the clean/classic decklid, bright bumpers, .....
bright wheel covers, and well-fitting full-length trim. It all makes for a pleasant-looking driver-quality classic. And ""driver"" is the optimal word here because a good Beetle makes for the right kind of classic you can hop in on a whim and enjoy on the road.
The brown interior is correct for the car. We don't often see this color, and it's a tasteful style, especially against the exterior beige. It looks like there were the right updates here with newer carpet and clean upholstery. This has the right vintage style everywhere from the button-top presentation of the high-bac bucket seats to the Wolfsburg crest in the center of the steering wheel. But as a driver's car, there are also the right additions. There are little things that make a nice difference, like cup holders and side window overhangs. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo means upgraded driving music.
The warranty voucher in the owner's manual indicates that this has the numbers-matching motor. That's a true rarity in VW circles, and it adds to this classic's distinction. Of course, the other reason why you'll love the motor is that the 1500cc flat-four has one of the best reputations for robustness around. This one shows the right signs of good maintenance - including newer pieces like the distributor - and an overall clean appearance. And the way this one fires up and runs so eagerly reaffirms its quality care. The air-cooled hum of the motor and the control of the four-speed make for a fun driving package. And there are nice extras like the grip of modern Cooper tires.
The sale comes complete with service manuals and the important owner's manual. This is a distinct classic Bug with all the classic features you love. Call today!!!
