Beetle Exchange Restoration Services

At the Beetle Exchange we specialise in restoration work. If you can’t afford the dream of owning a new Beetle, or simply prefer the look of the older one, you might like to talk to us about restoration. We refurbish cars to suit every budget—from just an outside respray, retrimmed interior or rebuilt motor and gearbox through to a full, ground up restoration.

A full restoration would include stripping the car, a complete respray in the colour of your choice, retrimmed interior in your choice of modern fabrics, rebuilt motor, gearbox, suspension and brakes.

A Beetle Exchange full restoration comes complete with a 3 year, unlimited kilometre drivetrain warranty and 12 months ACT or New South Wales registration. Whatever your requirements, email us or come in and talk about a quote to bring your Beetle, Type 3 or other Volkswagen (or any other car we have in stock) back to its original state.
