1974 VW Beetle – Before

LB rolled onto the Airkooled Kustoms grounds in pretty good condition – a sight that’s becoming more unusual by the day for classic Volkswagens. LB’s owner is… LB, a physician from a nearby southern state. Get this – this sweet 1974 Standard Beetle was his car in high school. He’s been hauling it around for a few years, waiting for the right time and the right shop to give it a beautiful new lease on life. The doc uttered some of our favorite words, “Do what you do best,” and essentially left the bulk of the design decisions up to us.


LB’s making quick progress, and we’ll have some gorgeous paint shots to show soon.

Some juicy details of this build:

  • 1776 Mill
  • 4-wheel disc brakes
  • Black…ish glass-like kustom paint all around from Spook’s color palette
  • 3-point electrical harness
  • Stock bumpers
  • Scat Pro car interior
