Chunky. That’s what I think of when looking at this car. Among the newest Beetles available state-side, the ’76 featured here has led a life free from the neglect and abuse so many of these air-cooled Bugs suffered from. Much like today’s economy cars, they weren’t collectors’ items or even desired for anything more than performing as basic transportation. That’s why a museum-quality piece like this brown Beetle is a charming find, further augmented by an oh-so-70s houndstooth interior that I get dizzy just looking at. The paint color is definitely period correct – if only the seats were a nice shade of green to match! A car like the Beetle is too significant to ignore, and the ’76 was among the more civilized models, with air conditioning and other appointments that stand in stark contrast to its sparsely-equipped forebears.

Just arrived, this is one of the nicest, original true survivor car we have had in seven years. With the exception of a few paint chips in the all original paint, this car is really showroom new. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a true survivor of these iconic cars.
Excellent, original factory Topaz Metallic (Gold) paint. As expected, there are some paint chips on the hood and front fenders. We can have them touched up if desired by the buyer. We are leaving original at this time to preserve the status of the paint. Mint original White & Black Houndstooth cloth interior. Mint dash, door panels, carpet and headliner. Interior is showroom new.
Now it will look great in your garage. The car is equipped with the factory 1600 CC fuel injected engine and four speed manual transmission. New ice cold vintage air conditioning was installed when it arrived in Florida. Garage kept, pampered and serviced, this car could not be nicer. This car has been refreshed, detailed and ready to drive or show.

So, how high will this one go? Not sure. The vintage VW market is a funny one, with Buses and truly old-school Beetles fetching big bucks in all manner of conditions. This 1976 Beetle would be a nice complement to a similar-era 2002, as they both featured color shades of the 70s and bumpers that could break your knees (and hopefully, your impact).
