In the Fifties, manufacturers were making their offerings larger, luxurious, and even some offered performance machines to stand out. But what if you didn't need all that? What if you just wanted to get by. The Volkswagen Beetle was the answer to that question. It was intended to be a quick and easy way to get about. The original Volkswagen beetle ended up selling over 21 million examples in its 65-year production run. This icon certainly played a big part in automotive history and today is a car with a cult following because it is a classic that you can daily drive if desired. Were you looking to get your hands on a piece of automotive history? This 1985 Volkswagen Beetle resto-mod is the candidate to own, look at, drive, and enjoy.
While this particular Beetle is a resto-mod it’s nice to see that there haven't been extensive changes done to its body. This 1985 Volkswagen Beetle resto-mod sports a gray exterior; the color is almost similar to an Audi's Nardo Gray. The chrome trim has been deleted with the car now sporting black accents. The headlights have been upgraded to LED lights with both the front and back being smoked to match the exterior color. This Beetle also has a lovely stance thanks to a slight negative camber and sports black and silver Rostyle styled MS wheels. The custom work is mainly done on this car's interior. The red interior has been freshened up with more supportive and comfy seats holding you and your passengers in place. Sitting in the driver's seat, you would notice the dashboard seeing some work done to it but still sporting the original speedometer. The upgraded Grant steering wheel and gear knob provide a sporty outlook and complete the interior features of this car.
The Volkswagen Beetle isn't a performance machine, this has led to owners extensively building their air-cooled engines by spending a fortune or even swapping their engines out to a Flat four Subaru powerplant. While this sounds fun, you’re sure to lose that Volkswagen charm somewhere down the line. The beating heart of this 1985 Volkswagen Beetle resto-mod is a flat-four engine providing that iconic Volkswagen rumble. Power is sent to the car's rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission.
