Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1966 Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen Beetle-officially the Volkswagen Type 1, informally in German der Kfer (meaning "beetle"), in parts of the English-speaking world the Bug, and known by many other nicknames in other languages-is a two-door, rear-engine economy car. The original concept behind the first Volkswagen, the company, and its name is the notion of a people's car - a car affordable and practical enough for common people to own. Hence the name, which is literally "people's car" in German. The largest change to date for the Beetle was in 1965: the majority of the body stampings were revised, which allowed for significantly larger windows. The result was a more open, airy, modern look. For 1966, the big news was an optional new 1300cc 50 HP engine in lieu of the previous 1200cc engine that had been the sole engine since 1954. Models so equipped carried a "1300" badge on the engine lid. The 1300cc engine was standard for North America.

This particular 1966 was built for the European market where it was sold new and driven until being imported to the US in 2005. Powering this Beetle is the infamous 1300cc Air Cooled Flat Four backed by a 4-Speed Manual Transmission. This Beetle is finished in the factory Sea Blue paint, believed to be original, matched with an equally original and very clean Cloth Interior. Options on this Euro Spec '66 Beetle include: Gray Cloth Interior, Hub Caps, Radial Tires, and Seatbelts. The consignor states that the mileage is original and the vehicle comes with factory literature and some documents including import documents, but we are unable to verify true mileage. This 1966 Volkswagen Beetle runs like a top, is stunningly original, and as close to what a new Beetle must have been like to drive! Remember... they're only original once!
