VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

This 1961 Volkswagen Beetle Ragtop is a fully restored and upgraded car that completed its work only about 800 miles ago. So its quite a fresh build that gives you an open roof, super-slick paint, a supple leather interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and a performance-built motor. It all makes for an outstanding custom that youll love to drive everywhere and likely pick up trophies along the way. With such a fresh build, the red paint is butter-smooth. The way it radiates and lets the light dance off the curvy Beetle design and show off the excellent fit will make you want to spend extra time out in the sunshine. Of course, we know the full-length ragtop sunroof will have you loving every sunny day, too. And what makes the whole package so striking is the way it respects its history while also being absolutely custom. Up front, you have classic pieces like the covered headlights and Wolfsburg crest in the trim. These are joined by details like the upgraded bumpers and billet mini grilles for a touch of smoother and modern style. Along the sides, the fenders were widened to accept a beautiful set of RDW 15-inch wheels. And the rear has the classic Popes Nose decklid take center stage, but its also updated with a unique teardrop blue-dot quad tail light package. It all makes for the kind of style where you can tell someone who loved VWs wanted to make something distinct. The classic VW interior looks nice from a quality presentation. The supple tan leather looks premium without being out of place in this classic. Thats because they took the time to give you the right details like the low-back front bucket seats, beautifully polished door cranks, and a classic weave to the carpeting. The speedometer is the classic VDO unit with an early-style separate fuel gauge, but you can also tell this is an upgraded driver. The wood-rimmed Sportline steering wheel and Hurst four-speed shifter are there to engage you better than the factory did. The engine bay continues the sleek red style that really showcases how fresh the build is. At the center is a performance-built 1776cc motor that features a Scat 69mm counterweighted crank, Cima 90.5 mm pistons, Scat C25 camshaft, EMPI aluminum dual port heads, and dual Weber carburetors. And details like the belt tensioner and HEI ignition remind you that this is a car thats made to be driven. More of this enhanced driving attitude also comes from upgrades like four-wheel disc brakes and a grippy set of sport tires. It feels like they scrutinized every inch of this build to make sure this VW is sleek, premium, powerful, and distinct. So if you want a sunny-day ragtop Bug that is absolutely awesome from the moment it comes into view, call today!
