The Jungle Bug - It's Grrrrrrrreat!

Hows this for something cool and different.  The Jungle Bug is a 1971 VW Super Beetle that has been transformed into a wild street custom. It was featured in the September 03 issue of VW Trends Magazine. It features Colorado Custom billet wheels (17 x 7 front / 18 x8 rear) disk brakes and a lowered suspension from Topline Parts.

Paint is an orange pearl from House of Kolor with the dark brown and black Bengal Tiger stripes done by legendary painter, Don "The Egyptian" Boeke. The Egyptian also did the graphics on the custom dashboard.

The interior is full-custom with grey tweed upholstery, custom dash and console and a LeCarra steering wheel. Occupying the rear seat area is a bank of speakers and subwoofers driven by 2400 watts of Planet Audio components.

The engine is mild and reliable.  Size has been increased to 1641 cc for extra power, while retaining reliability.  A pair of Weber carburetors likewise increase power.

PRICE: $ 13,900.00 or trade for interesting Hot Rod, Rat Rod or Custom
