"Slug Bug Red"

Perhaps one of the most endeared car ever produced was the VW Beetle. Volkswagen literally rose from the ashes of WWII with the Volkswagen Type 1 or Beetle. The Beetle was different, simple, reliable and fun. These core elements would prove to be important as the VW beetle would eventually become to be the most mass produced car of all time; surpassing the Model T in 1972 with car number 15,007, 034 and by 1973 production of the beetle surpassed 16 million units. More amazing than the production numbers, is that the Beetle never became boring. Through Volkswagen's commitment to quality, the Beetle kept evolving and improving over time. The introduction of the Super Beetle in the early 70's demonstrated that fact as VW deviated from their tried and true torsion bar front suspension replacing it with a coil over strut suspension improving usable space under the bonnet, creating a longer wheelbase and improving overall suspension and handling.


The 1968 Volkswagen Beetle offered here has just recently been fully restored. According to the owner the 4 cylinder engine and manual shift transmission were just rebuilt. We took the beetle for a test drive and it performed well. It has a new carburetor. The VW is wearing a fresh coat of red metallic over a black interior. The blank vinyl seats are freshly re-upholstered as is the back seat. The carpet and floor mats are new as are the black door panels. The factory radio is functional as well. This little Beetle rides new tires.
