I was looking at this car, built by the justly famous George Poteet in 2010, on the cover of an old Street Rodder:

...and I got to thinking about a Beetle pickup version with the 19" yellow Dayton wires, spun aluminum disc brake covers, dark green paint with pinstriping, and the louvered visor. The E&J headlights are (were?) available as reproductions. An old tractor radiator with a chrome vinyl wrap onto a modded fiberglass 40 Ford hood and you'f pretty much be there.

Basically that livery on this body from Permalink #36:
