VolksRod, rat rod, hot rod... no matter what you call this 1967 Volkswagen Beetle you already know it's a very cool custom build. And as you start to look at the details, everything from the clean under side to the auto-clutch transmission makes it attractive for far more than its looks.
This little VW will always attract big attention. There's deleted fenders, windshield sunshade, a racing number on each side, and a luggage rack so tall it could double as a racing spoiler. The paint simulates a classic patina, and the studded hood really drivers home this rat rod style further. The rear love to have bold protrusions with its bullet-style taillights and big exhaust tips. The stance is even awesome with meaty BF Goodrich tires in the rear, and the front is elongated thanks to a suspension stretch kit by Fabshop104.
Inside, the alligator-style texture of the side panels continues the cool/custom presentation. But while a rat rod would just be about lawn chair seats and junkyard parts, this interior is a bit more thoughtful. The dual bucket seats are borrowed from a more modern vehicle. So they have good bolstering, recline, and are covered in a comfy cloth. You also have nice driver upgrades like the shifter and wood-rimmed Grant GT steering wheel.
While the engine bay does it best to look like a true rat rod (the license plates lining the back are a particularly nice touch) there is a look of quality that you can also instantly recognize. It's everywhere from the fan housing to the upgraded pulleys w/tensioner. Volkswagen's 1600cc is a strong unit and the largest displacement of the series. The upgraded headers and exhaust give it the right sound you want out of this custom Bug. This has the Autostick transmission that has a vacuum-operated clutch. So there's no third pedal on this coupe, but you still get the control of rowing through the three forward gears to get the most out of the VW's hardy motor.
Volkswagens all have a personality, and this is the Herbie that's gone to the punk rock side. So if you want an eye-catching custom offered for quite an obtainable price, call today!!!
