HIGHLIGHTS: Nicely restored and highly desirable 1963 VW Beetle Ragtop! Beautifully preserved older restoration! 1600CC! Matching trailer! This is the Ragtop Beetle of your dreams!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Beetle is in incredible condition, and shows extremely well. The body is very straight, and really shows the level of care this car has received since the restoration. Even the underside is in nice condition, which is no small feat for a classic Beetle! The more you look at this car, the more apparent the quality of restoration becomes.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Refinished in ever-popular Gulf Blue, this Beetle looks fantastic! The paint shows very well in person with good depth and a glossy finish. Imperfections are at a minimum. This VW is sure to turn heads just about anywhere! This is an older restoration, so there are some very minor imperfections to be found that come with age, however overall the paint is in great condition and shows very, very nicely.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Like the rest of the car, the interior has received a restoration with lots of new parts and shows very well. With the desirable low-back bucket seats, as correct for 1963, and the matching interior color to the exterior Gulf Blue looks great! Other features include a hidden modern radio, a modern sound system complete with tweeters and a subwoofer, and period-correct luggage.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits what is believed to be a 2110cc VW engine, which is a welcome upgrade over the original 1200cc. It is equipped with dual carburetors, which is yet another functional and tasteful upgrade. Plus it looks pretty cool! This Beetle runs like a champ, and the aftermarket exhaust gives it a sound most Beetles can only dream of having! Listening to this car idle is simply music to any car enthusiast's ears. Furthermore, this Beetle has been restored with driveability in mind and is ready to hit the street!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The high level of restoration and the classic color combination!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you don't like VWs, this probably isn't for you! Otherwise, this is a hard vehicle to nitpick.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? As is common with VWs of this era, the heater does not work properly, and the wipers do not work, but otherwise this car is absolutely ready to roll!

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any discerning buyer looking for an appreciating classic! If you like talking about your car to people, this car has you covered!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
