Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present this classic '66 VW Beetle restored in a Love Bug theme. The exterior showcases a pearl white finish with Herbie stripes & number 53 graphics. It rides on custom wheels & is powered by a peppy 1300 c.i. engine. The paint and body show well through this little Beetle. For those of you too young to remember the "Herbie The Love Bug " movies, heres a short clip from the Disney movie. This is the first that Herbie's owner realized he was special. This one is as cute as a Bug. The two wood & metal custom trays really add to this Beetle. It would look great with perhaps some vintage luggage and or surf boards affixed.

The tires are in good condition all around as are the polished custom wheels. Open the doors to 1966. The interior features restored vinyl bucket seating along with a restored rear seat. The upholstery is a burnt orange. The seatbelts match, front & rear. The dash features the factory speedometer gauge cluster - functional and Sapphire III AM Radio - not working. The 1300 c.c. engine was tuned up in 2012 with a replaced carburetor, fuel line, ignition point, distributor cap & rotor, etc. Just over $1,300 was spent on the mechanical maintenance with verifying receipts. The engine runs good and the 4-speed manual transmission shifts like a stock VW should. The engine is clean and in good condition.

The undercarriage is in good condition. The drivetrain underside is very clean. The underbody and engine underside look really good.  There are a few small areas of rust-through in the pan corner photographed above. The door panels are in great shape. This Love Bug was photographed at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas.
