When someone walks in to our RK Motors Charlotte showroom and asks “What's the most metal I can get for my money?” we usually take them to the Volkswagen section. That's because there simply isn't any car with a better combination of timeless style, cool engineering and big-time affordability than a vintage VeeDub. From a collector's standpoint, they're plentiful, fun, easy to live with classics that enjoy a cult-like following and a positively gigantic support system. And from an enthusiast's standpoint, cars like this awesome '63 Beetle -- available for less than $20K, are such great buys that they're almost riot-inducing! If you're looking for one of the coolest and most unique classics your money can buy, welcome to the 'people's car'!
Sporting a slick combination of Beryl Green and Pearl White 2-stage, this fully-sorted and completely road ready Beetle has, at some point, benefitted from a well done restoration. And while its body isn't concours perfect, it is very straight and carries a spectacular shine that will look excellent motoring down the road to either a VW show or your favorite local hang-out.
Being that the Beetle is one of the most popular and longest running brands of all time, you only need a few contacts and a little bit of luck to find almost any replacement part the car might need. Accordingly, this bug's body features a ton of factory-correct bolt-ons. Up front, a classic curved bonnet hangs bright trim and old school VW emblems between a guarded bumper, classy horn grilles and Hella headlights. Behind that bonnet, small wipers, elegant mirrors and correct door handles flank stainless-trimmed Sekurit glass. Below those mirrors, traditional profile trim and metal running boards frame beefy stone shields, chrome-trimmed turn signals and a gnarly antenna. At the back of the car, traditional taillights illuminate a sculpted decklid, euro-spec fog lamps, polished exhaust and a guarded bumper. And at the top of the car, a vintage luggage rack adds practicality and personality.
Powering this groovy bug is a 1,776cc four cylinder that mixes just the right amount of bling with just the right amount of power. At the sides of the pint-size block, two polished air cleaners funnel wind through two Weber 2-barrels. A hot Compu-Fire coil bounces spark through a traditional points distributor and Bosch 7mm Ultra-Premium plug wires. Spent gases roll through a polished aftermarket header and polished aftermarket muffler. And attractive pulleys spin a fresh V-belt between chrome engine cowls and a snazzy CPR oil filler. Like the rest of the car, the tidy engine bay is reliable, road ready and nice enough to display. And there are plenty of cool add-ons, like stainless fuel lines, chrome bonnet hinges and a chrome dipstick.
Take a look under this solid VeeDub and you'll find a straight chassis that's no stranger to the open road. The flat-four engine twists power to a traditional 4-speed transaxle. Front disc and rear drum brakes bring everything to a quick standstill. The car's torsion bar and independent suspensions have been completely rebuilt at some point, presently featuring KYB front shocks and air-filled rear shocks. And at the corners of the car, attractive EMPI Sprintstars spin 145/65R15 Continental ContiEcoContact EPs in front of 165/80R15 Nexen SB-802s.
Pop this coupe's solid closing doors and you'll find a restored vinyl interior that's the perfect spot to spend a summer afternoon cruising! All four passengers, assuming two of them are very short, enjoy pleated vinyl seats and retrofitted safety belts. In front of those seats, a painted and chrome-trimmed dash hangs factory telemetry beside direct-fit, MP3-compatible audio. That seat and dash combo is retro-cool when framed in the car's tweed carpet, perforated headliner and plaid door panels. The driver stays connected to the road thanks to a snazzy EMPI GT steering wheel. The passengers stay entertained thanks to big Sony Xplod speakers. And everyone stores gear behind a small spare tire in the car's spacious front hatch.
No matter the car, completing a reliable, fully sorted restoration is very expensive. Fortunately, you can walk right in to our RK Motors Charlotte showroom and make another person's loss your big gain! If you're looking for something that's fun, unique and stuffed with charming character, this super cool Beetle is your next classic.

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
