Who can’t recall owning or at least riding in an early Volkswagen Beetle? Even though it is one of Ferdinand Porsche’s best designs and is of course German made, the “Bug” is a part of Americana.
If you have ever owned a 1966 Beetle, you probably have a feel for the things that made it special. There were some unique changes in the 1966 model year. The emergency flasher on the dash in 1966 was a one-year-only change, while other improvements, like the suspension, were more long-term changes that were incorporated into the Beetle. The 1966 model was also the only year for the 1300 engine and the last year of the 6-volt electrical system. At 50 horsepower you would think it would barely get out of its own way, but remember it only weighed 1,672 lbs!
Offered here is a wonderful, fun to drive 66’ finished in Pearl White (paint code 687 13) over Pigalle red leatherette (code 75) interior. No better combination for an early Bug. Recently completed rebuild of the 1300cc motor makes this the perfect weekend car to drive anywhere. Oh yes, if you take it on a long trip, it comes with the optional roof rack for those extra bags!!
