- This classic sixties Beetle can help someone take a walk on the memory strip in their young years or even feel a twinge of nostalgia for classic ads who said something like, “When you run out of gas, it’s easy to push.”
- This Beetle has a 1.2-liter engine with a four-speed engine and a four-speed manual transmission.
- The current bid is $ 12,000, but for the entire weekend before the auction closes on Monday, March 28, we’re curious to see how much this classic Bahama Blue costs.
Who doesn’t feel a little nostalgic looking at a Volkswagen Beetle? This 1964 Bugcurrently sold on the Bring a Trailer auction site — which is like Car and driver, is part of Hearst Autos – gives me a variety of rosy memories. I can’t help but think of my mom and her sisters who played alone as teenagers. One of my aunts missed those days so much that an adult bought a classic Beetle just to relive her youth a little on the weekends. This personal connection, this nostalgia is one of the main reasons why I love classic cars and I know I’m not alone.
This Beetle is located about an hour north of San Francisco. The current seller purchased it in 2020 and ordered to paint the original Bahama Blue factory paint. Additional work included upholstering the front and rear seats and installing new sills and door panels and adding rubber mats. If you are a fan of originality, original panels are also included.
The engine is a 1.2-liter flat four with a four-speed manual transmission. The carburetor, valves and timing were adjusted by the current owner, who also replaced the generator, voltage regulator, fuel lines and glass regulator on the driver’s side. Exterior upgrades included the installation of window sills, exterior trim, chrome bumpers and tubular slats. The beetle is completed with white-painted 15-inch steel discs with VW branded caps.
On the steering wheel is the coat of arms of Wolfsburg (the city was the headquarters of VW for almost a century) and a chrome horn. The five-digit odometer shows 89,000 miles, but the total mileage is marked as unknown.
Although the Beetle continued to do until 2019 in Mexico this classic from the 60s and 70s is harder to find in such good condition. Anyone who has had a classic VW knows that it’s not just in the car; it’s the whole culture that surrounds him. Just looking at old VW ads and commercials while writing this was a blast. In the 60s this car was unique, and today it remains one of the most noteworthy and bestsellers of that era. This bug will be a great addition to someone’s collection; I wish I had a place for that in mine. Auction ends Monday, March 28th.
