This is a recent project. A 1965 Fontana Grey Deluxe Beetle. It was purchased from an 84 year old woman whom purchased the vehicle new. It was purchased at Niello VW in Sacramanto. We spent several months preserving the original Fontana Grey paint and restoring the interior, wheels etc... The dealer applied undercoating was removed to expose the perfect paint in the wheel wells.

Funny. She and her husband drove it just about daily. However it was garaged when not in use and somehow never wrecked. The bumpers are original and date coded to the car.
