1965 Volkswagen Beetle

The beauty of the Volkswagen Beetle as a practical classic is that so many of them were built. Over 21 million, in fact. Sure, this doesn’t make them particularly rare, but given the laws of attrition, there are still a few good ones lurking out there, even those that are unmodified. This 1965 Beetle for sale in Pennsylvania is one of those cars, ready to roll for the air-cooled enthusiast.
