Man the pics do no justice to it.
It was looking breathtaking in the flesh.

Surely the owner must be madly in love with it. ;-)

It is indeed nicely done, leather seats, new wheels, clean paint job, shiny crome... Sweeet! Although the owner could get a nice front grill.. I think it would further enhance the appearence


Did the beetle always come with Bucket seats? I saw a 1965 beetle the other day and that also had bucket seats.

Karl, you're the Beetle man here. Tell me, have they increased the height? May be may be not, but to me it looks like that.

hmm...yeah does look like the settings have been fiddled with...personally i dont care for the look...its a bit too confused...but to each his own!

the earliest (1938 to 48ish i think) beetles came with 16inch wheels as standard....they then had 15 inchers till 66...these were shared with most porsche 356s...

i sniff a beetle thread in the offing...where do i post it man?! certainly they dont beling in supercars... we need a space for vintage and classic...and not the one in off topic...are u listening mods?

cheers
