I am sold this 1965 fully restored Sunroof BuG for a good friend of mine. I guess he learned a thing or two from me when it came time to putting this lil guy back together, haha ) She looks awesome.
This was a Super Clean metal sunroof model bug that was painted the L378 Prairie Beige. This car was restored about two years ago, a complete “body off” resto. She sports a later model rebuilt 1500cc motor, 12v system, she cruises beautifully down the road. I took a bunch of pics yesterday at my favorite spot on the Hudson along with some HD video. My friend Dave (owner) gave me a bunch of pics of the resto as well, so you can take a peek at that.
Dave chose to go with the more toned down look when it comes to accessories. You know me, gravel guards, white walls, eyelids maybe, etc etc. I know I will get emails saying “Chris, this is not like you, you are missing your usual stuff on there. Why did you do that? Are these parts not available anymore? What should I do with my bug now that I can’t get those parts? Why are they not making those parts anymore? Why Chris, WHY?” And no I am not kidding I will get those emails or even phone calls, the net is a nutty place.
All kidding aside, Dave restored this car from ground up, brand new pans, all new german seals, chrome, interior, headliner professionally installed, THE WORKS.
