This is the kind of car that will turn heads and stump car show judges. And so its amazing that a gullwing classic like this 1980 Volkswagen Aquila can also be so / brbr So we know your first question is What is an Aquila? Its an American-made fiberglass body company the produced complete kits to turn plain-Jane Beetle into a BMW M1-like exotic. In fact, the transformation is so extensive that there isnt anything from its VW roots still visible on the exterior. Instead, you have a low amp; sleek hood, pop up headlights, plenty of aggressive air inlets, and a sporty profile that will make people think this is a rare and expensive classic. And in fact, they are half-right. This is body #137, and its believed that there were as few as 150 of these produced in total during the companys full run in the early 1980s. So when you have bright cream paint, brighter wire wheel covers, and a well-preserved body, you know that someone has taken care of this like a low-batch car should / brbr From the moment you open up those show-stopping gullwing doors, you can tell just how a complete build this is. After all, if youve seen a lot of kit cars, you know few others have such a nicely coordinated interior and name-embroidered carpeting. The low-slung leatherette bucket seats make you feel like youre in a true exotic. And that feeling is heightened further by the sports steering wheel, overhead console, and full Stewart Warner gauge package set in the burled walnut-style dash. Theres even a vintage SpaceKom Autocomp 7000A fuel efficiency computer. That seems quite fitting on a car that was fabricated in the 1980s out of Cupertino, California (home to Apple Computers.)br / brbr While the interior and exterior are pure low-batch exotic, youll be happy to know that the hardy Beetle drivetrain is still underneath. So you can look like a million-dollar car, but maintenance is still shade tree easy. The VW 1200cc powerpalant is not going to give you supercar levels of speed, but you will get plenty of joy as the four-speed manual transmission allows you to take full control of the Beetles famously robust motor. And there is even an upgraded exhaust to give you a throatier tune that a / brbr This car requires a little more homework than others, because we know youre going to get plenty of admires asking for all the info on an exotic they never have seen before until you arrived. Oh yeah, this level of cool attention is rarely so affordable. Titled as a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, dont let this Aquila slip away. Call today!!!br/br/
