Nicknamed “Jarrell’s Bug” after its owners, the restoration began as a green patina car was brought into the shop for a complete pan-off, down to bare metal restoration. The chassis, body, interiors, engine, electricals, transmission, tires, and every other part were stripped, restored where possible, and replaced where needed. The finished restoration showcases a powerful 1600cc dual port engine, wide five disk brake kit with drop spindles, TMI interiors, EMPI 5-spoke chrome wheels, and a 3-inch narrowed beam with adjusters.
The restored 1965 Volkswagen Beetle was painted in a stock Bahama Blue paint and now occupies a coveted display area at Hiley VW. The Hazel Green, AL Volkswagen restoration shop ensured that no part of the car was left untouched during the project. The car was stripped to component level before being lovingly rebuilt by the company’s team of VW restoration specialists.
