1957 Volkswagen Beetle $16,495

Cadillac, MI
1957 Volkswagen Beetle a really fun bug. Though its not the nicest or fastest, a well built driver that is a blast to drive and is acting as a current daily driver. Nicely built dual port, dual carb 1776 with good performance, a decent but lopey idle, and general good temperament (save for really cold mornings). Stock magnesium VW block drilled, tapped, and plugged for full-flow filtering having an extra 1.5 quart EMPI sump. Filter element is vintage multi-element fine screen with a check valve that can be disassembled and cleaned at regular oil change intervals. Oil temp is read off a VDO sender mounted in the oil pressure relief spring port plug (supposedly the most accurate place to measure the real-time oil temp). The engine internals feature a counterweighted and balanced crank, Scat C35 cam, high volume oil pump, and performance rocker arm kit. Ignition system is the CB performance MagnaSpark II unit set up with the stiffest springs (I have all the springs plus advance limiting bushings). Carburetors are EMPI 40 HPMX tuned with .135 main jets. Car does currently have j-tubes (sorry, no heater) plus an EMPI dual tip muffler (VERY loud). Engine does not drip oil, but there are a few little seeps showing up around two or three of the pushrod tubes (weep marks of oil). Transmission is some form of what people call a freeway flier, but I dont know the exact ratios. I do know that cruising at 75 below 4,000 rpm is possible (and easy). Transaxle is quiet, doesnt leak, goes through gears fine with no grinding or strange noises a short-throw vintage Hurst Saf-T-Trigger shifter. The steering is tight (no discernible slack), runs straight down the road, suspension components are quiet and stable. Front beam 4 narrowed, adjustable. -Vehicle is on consignment and at our clients home -Please Call First and talk to a rep at 231-468-2809 EXT 1 -Showroom is by appointment only Please Call -If you would like a FREE Listing please visit our consignment page or Call
