1968 Vw Beetle Bug Convertible Restored Rebuilt Performance 1600 Big Bore Engine on 2040-cars
Joelton, Tennessee, United States
DO NOT BID WITHOUT CALLING ME FIRST. Runs and drives good, ive put about 100 miles on it in the past few days. Not perfect show quality but really nice, restored years ago and shows a little age but its in great condition. Im not sure if the interior is original or replaced but its in near perfect condition. Original floorpans with no rust but the passenger rear has been replaced due to battery rot (an original pan was cut from another bug and put in) New chrome original style wheels and caps, new tires and new spare tire, new bumpers and brackets, new headlight rings, new top and top cover, original white repaint (fully disassembled and done right), new front windshield seal, new convertible top seals, new window seals (except vent window seals), new body seals (except brake light seals) , all new brake lines, new battery and a few other things. It still has all the cardboard insulation and tool kit under the front hood. The engine was just replaced with a recently rebuilt 1,600 dual port that has a 87mm big bore piston and jug kit, performance camshaft, 009 electronic ignition distributor, new quiet high performance exhaust system and a new stage 1 clutch, pressure plate & throw out bearing. It also comes with the original engine that has a locked piston. It runs and drives but needs the carburetor and timing adjusted by a professional, I done the best I could without a timing light and it starts quick, runs good and idles good, it may all be fine but I suggest having it checked. Sometimes it dies at stop signs but starts back up soon as you hit the switch. It also has a slight oil leak on the driver side, valve cover or push rod tube. I buy and sale 3 or 4 classic cars a year and use some of them for my daily driver so I know every problem and fix what needs attention, I like to leave a little work for the buyer so I can ask a reasonable price. Ive been doing this for over 20 years, sold and shipped cars all over the world through Ebay. I also have it listed local with a lot of interest so this auction can end at any time. Call, text or email, I get poor signal at home so if I don't answer please leave a message615-753-2O9O DO NOT BID WITHOUT CALLING ME FIRST.

With Nissan getting ready to launch the e-NV200, it appears Volkswagen is looking to go after the same zero-emission commercial vehicle market with the all-electric 2013 e-Co-Motion Concept. Debuting next week at the Geneva Motor Show, the e-Co-Motion Concept might be small in size, but VW says it has cargo and payload capacities that should be perfect for small businesses.
Measuring 179 inches long, 75 inches wide and 77 inches tall, the e-Co-Motion Concept has about the same footprint as the current Golf, and it has a cargo capacity of 162 cubic feet and a maximum payload of more than 1,700 pounds. There isn't too much information on the e-Co-Motion just yet - such as what electric components and platform are used - but the press release posted below states while the concept is shown as a cargo van, future body styles could include a passenger wagon or a refrigerated box van.
Potential labor woes aside, it looks like Volkswagen's Chattanooga, TN factory must have done something that impressed the bosses in Germany, because it sounds like the three-year-old factory is set to score a second model.
The factory currently builds the Passat, and has been in the running alongside VW's Puebla, Mexico factory to build a new crossover vehicle, likely based on the CrossBlue Concept. According to Bloomberg, a pair of unnamed sources have confirmed that Chattanooga is the favorite ahead of an official announcement.
When last we heard about the CrossBlue Concept, word was that a production decision had been delayed over concerns about the three-row CUV's business case. That August 2013 story claimed that a decision regarding the CrossBlue would be pushed back until early in 2014, which means we're ripe for some sort of news, whether good or bad.
Chrysler has slowed production of its Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans this week, Automotive News reports. The Windsor, Ontario plant will cut its three shifts from eight hours each to four hours each in an effort "to align production with market demand," a Chrysler spokesperson told AN. Chrysler also builds the closely related Routan minivan for Volkswagen at its Ontario facility, but has not built a single example thus far in 2013.
Sales of Chrysler's minivans fell 15 percent for the first two months of 2013, and a large part of that has to do with the 26-percent drop of the Grand Caravan alone (the T&C was only down by one percent). According to Automotive News data, as of March 1, Chrysler had an unsold inventory of 24,713 Town and Country models and 18,547 Grand Caravans - a 69- and 43-day supply, respectively.
"No sense running full speed now, then have a lot of vehicles sitting around a few months down the line," Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson told AN. Full production is expected to resume again on March 18.
