The interior and body were finished to impressive original detail from the Deluxe white steering wheel and VDO speedometer out to the Sealing Wax Red and Chestnut Brown two-tone paint scheme and lighted semaphores. Volkswagen designed and built the Deluxe for eight-passenger touring with a cabin-length sliding sunroof and glare absorbing skylights that offer scenic views for every occupant. The tan upholstered interior is loaded with Deluxe-level appointments from the dash-mounted electric clock and split, folding bench seats to chrome trim and aluminum grab bars. A displacement bump up to 1776cc and dual carburetors help the air-cooled Volkswagen 4-cylinder churn out respectable performance. The transplant is a considerable upgrade over the original 1200cc engine that wheezed out just 36 HP. The worked flat-4 is backed up by a Freeway Flyer 4-speed manual transmission with modified gearing for more relaxed engine RPM at highway speeds. Wilwood disc brakes scrub off speed with confidence. A 4-inch front beam axle tucks the front wheels in for clearance, and the suspension is dropped 4-inches, but can be returned to stock ride height.
