GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1966 Volkswagen Beetle for your consideration. Finished in a very light teal color along with black vinyl interior this bug turns all kinds of heads. In the back of the Bug is a small 1.2L 1,300cc I4 motor with a whopping 50bhp and 65lb ft of torque all through a 4 speed gearbox, special for the '66 models. Believed to be all original with no aftermarket parts this little Bug runs like a champ. Engine runs smooth, clutch and gears feel solid and ready for the road. Truly a great little weekend warrior. Incredibly fun to drive and is assure to put a smile on your face every time. Please call or email us today for more information on this '66 VW Beetle.

For 1966, the big news was an optional new 1300cc 50 hp (37 kW; 51 PS) engine in lieu of the previous 1200cc engine that had been the sole engine since 1954. Models so equipped carried a "1300" badge on the engine lid. The 1300cc engine was standard for North America. The Beetle featured a rear-located, rear-wheel drive, air-cooled four-cylinder, boxer engine in a two-door bodywork featuring a flat front windscreen, accommodating four passengers and providing luggage storage under the front bonnet and behind the rear seat—and offering a coefficient of drag of 0.41; to this relatively good CD, the also streamlined rear of car was of help. The bodywork attached with eighteen bolts to its nearly flat chassis which featured a central structural tunnel. Front and rear suspension featured torsion bars along with front stabilizer bar—providing independent suspension at all wheels. Certain initial features were subsequently revised, including mechanical drum brakes, split-window rear windows, mechanical direction-indicators and the non-synchronized gearbox.
