The 1966 Beetle 1300 shown here in Savannah Beige over beige vinyl is a nice example of a classic Volkswagen. The car has been well maintained through its lifetime and lovingly refreshed without being modified. The result is a very reliable and very drivable classic with power delivered easily through the floor-mounted 4-speed shifter. Too many Beetles have suffered from well intended, but ill advised “updating” that reduced the model's appeal and value. Not here.
The exterior paint has been updated at some point between the time that this Beetle left the factory and now with a beige metallic color somewhere in between the '66 factory colors of Savannah Beige and Fontana Grey. The brightwork, and glass, are in great condition, and period-correct thin-stripe whitewall tires round out the vintage styling of the car. A matching set of fender skirts also come with the car. The engine bay is complete and tidy, and the same is true of the undercarriage. The interior is very tidy, including the condition of the dash. A modern Alpine AM/FM/CD Player and a clock mounted in the steering wheel (of all places) are the only changes made to the inside of the car. A single, characteristically simple chrome highlight runs the width of the dash. Short of an in-person inspection—which we always welcome by appointment—the more than 140 high-definition photos and the brief video available on the Garage Kept Motors site are the best way to gauge the lovely condition of the car.
VW Beetle fans know these cars well. This is a very tidy example of such an iconic and well loved car. We are pleased to have this Beetle here in our showroom, but we don't expect it'll be around long. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
