1960 VW Beetle in Paprika & Pearl - Spice that Charms

Anyone else grow up with stories from dad about racing his '60's Volkswagen Beetles? Beating the Porsche in a friendly street race? Speeding tickets bursting from the glove box? The exasperated judge throwing up his hands, a story dad relates with a sly grin and sparkling eyes?

This 1960 Volkswagen Beetle, while certainly no sleeper, still manages to stun. Don't be fooled by those colors, it's not an orange creamsicle, folks-that color is called Paprika, a suitably spicy name for what lies under the deck lid. The engine is a 2,110cc flat four cylinder engine perhaps pushing as much as 150 horsepower. It's been known to deliver a surprise wallop to a few Mustangs. Dad would love this thing! You too, right!

Owned, restored, and loved by a California transplant to Tennessee, this Beetle is a fusion of west coast flair and mid-south charm. Great retro feel, it drives like a go-kart, and oozes a million miles of cool. Read more below to get a sense of the investment of money, care, and time to produce such a sweet-hot ride.
