1970 VOLKSWAGEN 1500 BEETLE
This is one very hot VW Beetle and presents in Limestone Grey Metallic paintwork and complimentary red trim trim.
Subjected to a major rebuild costing nearly $35,000 in 2015 by one of Victoria's leading VW specialists, Australian VW Performance Centre of Croydon South, it was purchased by its present owner in 2016 and driven back to Adelaide. We hold two multi page invoices for all the work done.
The present owner has then installed a brand new engine in 2018 at a further considerable cost, which was put together by Adelaide VW legend Keith Poole. Whilst we don't have any paperwork to support the new engine build, we are informed that it was put together with all new parts, including a new block.
It has been stroked to a capacity of 2276cc and we understand is rated at 150bhp.
The build features twin carbies, roller rockers and port and polished heads. Current performance figures are not available, but if you drive this Beetle, you will find it easily out performs other Beetles. 2942 miles on the clock since engine installed.
Whilst everything that has been done to the car is heading towards top performance, it has been completed tastefully and the car has quite a subtle classic car look. There is nothing subtle however, about the sound and performance. Porsche 356's beware!
There is everything to love about this car, it's classic looks, it's performance and its noise, a great fun car to own.
Come and admire it on our state of the art showroom floor in Adelaide.
We can arrange transport door to door Australia wide, or you can just enjoy driving it home.
