The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most (if not the most) iconic cars ever created. The Beetles modest size and teardrop shape was very unique and helped differentiate itself from its compact rivals. This 1960 Beetle Cabriolet was acquired by the seller in 1985 and has undergone a gradual restoration over the past years. This Beetle was featured in the VWTrends magazine back in March of 2001. Power is derived from a 1,200cc flat-four engine paired to a manual 4-speed transmission. The convertible top is in working order and the car has been properly sorted over the years. This Beetle Cabriolet is a quintessential Cali cruiser and would be great for those looking to cruise PCH in style. This Beetle is mechanically and cosmetically in outstanding condition and is turn-key ready to be enjoyed and driven.

Looks a like an older ok restoration to me well used. Top is weathered. Looks like Carolyn Walkers old car . Was this car on the Magazine cover?


Its pretty weathered looking to me and definitely not a high end restoration….not even close. Looks like a car that was quickly done to sell or drive…….or maybe just a well used resto. Carolyn Walker of Phoenix owned a car just like this that was pictured on the cover of Trends…Is this her old car?


sweet ride and definitely a So Cal ride. GLWTA
