This is more than a car it's art in motion.  Wrapped in vinyl, the "Psychedelic VW" is a 1 of 1 original art piece from Laurence Gartel.   About the artist: https://gartelmuseum.weebly.com/biography.html Considered a pioneer of the digital art movement and the godfather of digital art Featured at the 2013 NY International Auto Show.  See pictures of the bug and other Gartel Art Cars at the event here: https://gartelmuseum.weebly.com/art-cars.html Official Artist of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles 2015 Commissioned by Tesla, Mercedes, Ferrari, Absolut Vodka, NBA, Coca Cola, Walt Disney and NASA to name a few.  About the car: Mechanically sound and refreshed.  Good driving condition.  Yes, the heater boxes are still installed. The 1600 cc engine: New push rods and push rod tubes New valve springs Heads cleaned New piston rings The fuel injections system has been removed and replaced with a carburetor Other mechanical improvements: 4 new Coker whitewall tires  New brakes Carburetor has been jetted  New windshield wipers New H-gate for shifter Electrical: $1,700 of electrical work performed by Bruce at McNab Foreign Car in Pompano Beach, FL.  Bruce is a VW legend in our area.  Low/High beams, blinkers, hazards, wipers, fuel gauge, oil pressure light are all in working order. Body: There is some light surface rust bubbling through the vinyl in a few spots I took the car to the 2019 Florida Bug Jam and it was easily the most photographed car at the show.  It's fun to drive and gets a lot of attention wherever it goes.  If you are looking for something fun to drive on the weekends you won't be disappointed.  A true "Love Bug"
