Behrens Convertible: 1963 Volkswagen Beetle

A vast contingent of Beetle based kit cars are funny looking things with dumpy proportions and style decisions that betray the rear-engine origins. Todays next Beetle based thing, however, is a breed of a different kind. It has a long front hood section that wouldn’t be bad by itself, but the aero head rest elements lead to a back end that is unquestionably atrocious. The other of the 2 kits made was still in kit form back in 2015, so perhaps you could salvage the rear end by not installing 60s Chevy lights. Find this 1963 Volkswagen Beetle Behrens offered for $24000CAD ($18717 USD) in Nanaimo, BC, Canada via faceflag parkingbook.
