1974 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Standard Beetle


TWO FOR ONE SALE! I am including with “BUY IT NOW!” a second, rashed out 1974 Super Beetle as a parts car! All you need is a trailer to cart it away on. I am including the second car for free! If you do not desire the parts car, he price does not change.

1974 VW Beetle w/ rather rare operating factory sunroof. (NOT SUPER BEETLE!)
DRIVETRAIN: 1600cc engine and transmission are great. Like all carbureted Beetles, he starts hard when she's cold. You have to warm her up..and then she's good to go and runs like a bat out of hell. She drives out excellently, nd tracks true. EMPI "Monza"-type exhaust (rusty but solid).
BODY: Body is in very good condition. All four fenders were "smoothed" by a previous owner. This is a technique where body filler is added to "smooth" out, nd/or change the lines of the car, o there IS body filler on all four fenders. (Fender-top front turn signals were shaved by a previous owner.) Three small spots of surface rust are bubbling through the paint,and the point of the "trunk" lid, own below the latch, s completely rusted through, ut the door frames are solid as are the floor pans. Driver’s door has some rust on the lower hinge, nd seems “sprung” and needs force to close properly. Rear, river's side fender has a small dent. Some body moldings were removed by a previous owner. Paint is decent other than the aforementioned bubbles. It appears thick to me; like it was applied by an amateur. Car was professionally lowered with coil-over shocks on all four corners. All the glass is good. Both sides roll down, ut need a guiding hand to do so. As I said, his model has the much-desired factory sunroof, nd it operates fine. The cables work PERFECTLY! When you crank it back, ou can see, rom the top, ome mild surface rust and the sealing gasket is missing. (I keep a tarp over it to keep it dry inside.) She has aluminum EMPI 8-Spoke Porsche wheels. No door keys! Headlight trim rings were sanded, rimed, nd painted flat black with clear satin topcoat. Tires have excellent tread on them, ut they are older.
INTERIOR: Carpet is good, rom EMPI. She has older EMPI racing seats installed, nd they are structurally great, ut the upholstery material is in poor condition. Front door panels are intact, ut rough. Rear side panels are missing. I was going to replace them all with diamond-plate, o I didn't sweat it. EMPI "T"-handle shifter installed. Headliner is mostly missing, ut what IS there is BAD!! It will need to be completely replaced. Dash was being prepped for a diamond-plate treatment, oo, o every dash-mounted item is simply hanging through the dash holes. NO SPEEDOMETER installed, ut with “BUY IT NOW!”, will throw in one you can use when you get to that part of the project.
WIRING/ELECTRICAL: A previous owner rather hashed some of the electrical wiring, o it has headlights, ail lights, rake lights, ut no turn signals, o dash or interior lights, nd no hi-beams.
I bought this as a project, ut I have too many. Time to pare down a little and I've decided the bug is the one to go. I'm concentrating on my other projects, o my loss can be your gain.

Please note: This car runs and drives right now. You can hop in, ire it up, et her warm up, nd hit the road if you want, ut If it was me, 'd put it on a trailer because of the older tires, he lack of a speedometer and turn signals. That would, f course, e up to your good judgment.

I’ve been as completely honest and up front as I can be with my description, ut I implore you to come and inspect the car, r have an agent of your choosing to do so before you buy it. (I will do all that I can to accommodate any inspection avenue you choose.) I don’t think I’ve missed anything, ut I’m only human. If you wish any additional pictures, r have any questions, lease post them and I will do my best to respond as promptly and as accurately as I can.
NOTE: This item is also offered for sale locally, o I reserve the right toend the saleif it sells to a local buyer.
