Latest Build-A-Bug: Classic VW BuGs 1956 *Build-A-BuG* Beetle Project for Mike F.

Classic VW BuGs, 1966 Sunroof Beetle Java Green *Vallone* Project

Look what just entered the shop today!  This lil baby found ME.  =o)


This is a beautiful 1966 1300cc Java Green Sunroof Beetle that just entered our shop, this car was a Hurricane Sandy Survivor.  This is an all numbers matching car, body, chassis, motor all match.  If you do not know, 1966 Beetles were a one year only beetle here in the USA, this is the only year they offered a 1300cc motor.   It is also the last of the 6 volt systems.

The car does need some mechanical work, but surprisingly after floating around in Brooklyn from the hurricane, there is nothing real extensive.  The car was repainted (the original color) at some point within the past 5 years or so, but I think we are gonna strip her down and get her painted.  As it sits now the car is driver quality paint, but you know me, I need it to be Vallone PERFECT!  =oD.  I think this might be my next winter project for the weekends and off hours.

We plan on tearing out this hideous interior:

And replacing it with a kit that I have had at my shop hand sewn from sewfine (brand new) below, or we can get whatever to your liking.


Check out how solid the car is.

Wheel wells are all clean and painted the Java Green, no undercoating anywhere.
