1966 VW Beetle - Inaugural Drive Around The Block

The car is no longer lowered this much. The original beam was a shockless 6.5" narrowed adjustable beam with 2.5" dropped spindles. The rear was also lowered one notch. It now has a stock front beam with 2.5" dropped spindles, and the rear has been brought back up to stock. Check out my blog ('66 VW Beetle Project): http://www.vwblvd.com It's been 11 months since my '66 Beetle arrived from California. Today marks the first time I drove it on the road. It's not done yet, as you can see in the video, but I'm getting close. Pretty exciting!

A 21st Century Family Test Drives a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle
Taking a 1966 VW Beetle out for a test drive with my wife (we were born about the same time this car was built) and our daughter who was born close to Y2K. The video is a bit shaky but I thought this would be a fun test drive. Still deciding if I want to buy a classic bug.





1966 Volkswagen Beetle.
This 1966 Volkswagen Beetle Deluxe sedan is a definite cut above the rest! First off is the fact that it is not and never has been rusty. Originally from San Mateo, Cal. and then moved to So. Fla. some years ago certainly helps. Both front and rear aprons are original to the car and indicate no accidents. The floor pans and heater channels are excellent, not corroded. The 1300 c.c. engine (F0858710) is the same engine it left the assembly line with. It drives as good as it looks, too. It has been very well maintained and garage kept through its life. Recent service includes a major tune up, including a valve adjustment, points, plugs, condenser, timing and dwell set to factory specifications at a Volkswagen repair shop. A complete brake service was done including master cylinder, wheel cylinders and brake shoe replacement. Tires? They are new, too. A front end alignment and ball joint replacement was also done to bring the little car to a high standard. Unmodified and unaltered VW's are so hard to find. This fine example retains the six volt electrical system and the dash remains uncut. The lights, turn signals and wipers all work well. It was painted once in its original color, L360, Sea Blue and is quite beautiful. Factory options include swing out rear quarter windows, working Sapphire lll AM all transistor push-button radio and an outside passenger side mirror. All in all an excellent example of Volkswagen's lovable little Beetle. As with any forty-six year old car, a few minor imperfections can be found with a close inspection. Odometer reads 37k miles but is exempt due to Florida law on automobiles over ten years old

Red VW bug rebuild
Two year body-off rebuild of a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle. The original 1200 motor was replaced with a 1970's twin port 1600 and the gearbox replaced with a swing-axle one from a late 1500 beetle. Body was bare-metalled and the usual rust prone areas were repaired. This is the beetle that I added a narrowed front beam to in another recent video.

Vintage! The VW Beetle | drive it
It sounds a bit strange for a popular family car like the Volkswagen Beetle to be outfitted with a roll bar, bucket seats and a racing harness. But the first souped-up VW Bugs hit the roads in Germany as early as 1951.Drive it! got a chance to take a specially-tuned, vintage rallye Beetle out for a spin - and discovered that roll bars, bucket seats and racing seat belts are more than welcome in a Bug that can do 170 km/h.
