1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle
A solid 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle that shines a little brighter, feels more comfortable, and retains all the right originality. That's what makes this a great classic at an affordable price.
A car like this deserves a nice clear coat shine. After all, there are few cars out there with more rounded curves. So the investment in the upgraded cream color looks fantastic every time this Beetle hits the sunshine. But more than just the paint, the bright work looks great on the bumpers, headlight trim, full-sweeping body line, and even the added chrome window visors. Contrasting all this brightness are crisp body seals and good rubber on the running boards. And for a uniting touch of brightness and deep darkness, there's a new set of 15-inch EMPI wheels.
No other door opens quite like a Volkswagen. Despite its economy car roots, you can feel a precision action when unlatching the handle, and the reassuring 'click' when you shut it has a luxury car-like accuracy. So when getting in feels this confident, it's even nicer to have such a well-finished interior to welcome you. Newer seats have comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit; the carpeting is fresh; and everything fits together properly. As you slip behind the upgraded and grippy Grant steering wheel, you'll spot the familiar VDO gauge. But as you keep gazing across this Beetle, you'll spot great upgrades like the Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo, upgraded speakers, and the EMPI gearstick.
VW's trusty 1600 cc flat-four is exactly what you want in a reliable classic. The engine bay is quite tidy, showing off a lot of new equipment, including dual carbs and lots of polished components. Plus, those twin carburetors with open-element air cleaners help add a little horsepower. Other newer upgrades include the performance crank pulley, dual-outlet exhaust system, and an electronic ignition system. It starts easily and idles well. This could possibly be the original block, which is just another testament to the Beetle's sturdiness. Out on the road, the four-speed manual transmission allows you to take full control and get the most out of the robust motor. Any Beetle owner will tell you there is something hypnotic about its air-cooled exhaust note. The full experience only gets better on a Super Beetle with its improved steering box, bigger brakes, and independent front suspension. This one even has new shocks, an alignment, and new tires, so it's ready to confidently hit the road right now.
This is the affordable classic that's been invested in to be a great driver. If you like to enjoy your vintage motoring to the fullest, hurry up and call today!
