Bug Me: ’66 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle
If you have been a reader of Mint2Me for a while, you already know we like rally cars. We created one out of a “grocery gettter” Mercedes-Benz 230S and it continues to perform well on the road and at car shows. On occasion, we think about what our next project might be and it is split between a ’65 Mustang K-Code Notchback and a VW Beetle. So here it is, my friends, the perfect candidate to make a really cool rally car for not a lot of money – a ’66 VW Beetle. And not just any Beetle, one with service records from the day it left the dealer. The current owner is one of the most talented Ferrari mechanics in the country. He loves it and wishes he could keep it. But alas, priorities force the sale. The paint looks great in pictures but it is acceptable. It is the correct color and you won’t know it isn’t concours-ready covered in mud. We are telling you, this is the cheapest way to get into any event and have a blast. Mechanically sound with some cool period Empi accessories, you can steal this at $10,000. Maybe a rally car isn’t you thing? Drive it to the station in any weather just like the Doyle Dane Bernbach commercial. Call me like now at (203) 917-2354.
