Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is proud to show you this 1968 Volkswagen Beetle. This one gorgeous worldwide icon, the 1960's Volkswagen Beetle. This Volkswagen Beetle, informally known in Germany as the Volkswagen Kfer and in the USA as Volkswagen Bug, is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engine economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until present day. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by German political leaders, aiming for a cheap and simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of in Germany. Ferdinand Porsche was contracted in 1934 to design and build it, after telling them in 1933 "this is the car for my roads", so the mission was set. During this post-war period, the Beetle had superior performance in its category with a top speed of 71 mph and a 0-60 mph in 27.5 seconds with fuel consumption of 36 mpg for the standard 34 hp engine. This Beetle is ready to cruise down to the beach. In 2010 a restoration was preformed on it to include the body, engine, and interior. It is powered by a 1.5L F-4 engine that is paired well to the Manual transmission. The engine also just had a full rebuild done to it with less then 100 miles on it. The burgundy exterior is and eye catcher with he sparkle it shows in the sun light. It is matched with the black vinyl interior.
