My 55' Beetle

I did some trading and ended up with this. I know there some things that are not original but, Ive always wanted an oval driver and that's what this is. I would like to find a good deal on a W deck lid, and I need a 60s steering wheel. I plan on putting white walls and some different wheels. Also some pin-striping. It has a 1931cc with a freeway flyer trans. Its an IRS pan with 4 wheel disc brakes. I'm sure you all seen this car on Craigslist. Ive been drooling over the car for nearly a year and I cant believe I have it.

I traded these two rides. The Trans Am has a spun bearing. I feel I got right. I got about half of what he wanted for it in it.

LOL I seen it on Samba and Craigs. Good stuff. Makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the 55 though. I looked it over real good and Ive drove it a couple hundred miles no problems. I mean other than the obvious. Wrong deck lid and fenders. Id like to find a good deal on some. IDK. Im happy with it. No plans on getting rid of it but, you never know. lol

There are no such things as 'good' deals on hoods and fenders for an oval :(
Im guessing an IRS pan too? With the 4 lug wheels.

Its a decent looking car, just drive it!

Nice car, is that an original roof rack or is is a repop?
