1975 VW Beetle Custom

If you are a gear-head, your taste in 60’s spooky sitcoms probably leans more towards the Munsters vs. The Addams Family.  The Munsters had their Barris Koach and Grandpa’s Drag-u-la whereas all the Addams Family had was a V-12 Packard.  Maybe if they had this VW with a 351 Windsor in it, your viewing habits might be different.  Find this 1975 VW Beetle Custom for sale in Grand View, ID for $12,000 via craigslist.
