This 1956 Volkswagen Beetle Sunroof Coupe was kept tucked away in the original owner's upstate New York barn for many years before it was subjected to a complete nut-and-bolt restoration about 10 years ago. The car received a recent oil change, valve adjustment and tune-up. It was made in January 1956 in West Germany. The car is presented in its original Strato Silver color. The paint is in overall very good order but at close range there are some blemishes. The car's trim pieces and hardware have been either replaced or refurbished ľ bumpers, moldings, antenna, headlight eyebrows and driver's side mirror. This car rides on BFGoodrich 15-inch whitewall tires that are mounted on steel wheels with early, military-style KDF Hubcaps. The car has been lowered and fitted with a Lime Bugs front suspension beam, adjustable Fox shock absorbers, Wilwood disc brakes, new tie rods, kingpins and a new steering box. The car's 1.2L air-cooled, four-cylinder motor was reportedly rebuilt by a specialist in central Massachusetts and upgraded with the following items ľ a mild camshaft, an Abarth 356-style exhaust and an Okrasa kit featuring dual-port heads, dual German carburetors, an external oil cooler and oil filter and features an upgraded Freeway Flyer four-speed manual transmission. Inside, the cabin has been completely reupholstered with new, gray, white and blue material sourced from Germany. Accessories include a folding canvas soft-top, a white, three-spoke steering wheel, a pop-out windshield and a Okrasa shift knob. For 1956, the Beetle received what would become one of its more distinctive features, a set of twin chrome tailpipes. Models for North America gained taller bumper guards and tubular overrider bars. Competition to this VW in 1956 included Nash's Metropolitan. If classic VW Beetles are your jam, come by MotoeXotica Classic Cars to check out this post-war VW Beetle for yourself.
