We will start off with the exterior of this Beetle. The body on it is in excellent condition and is covered in the two-Tone Phoenix Red and Light Ivory Color Scheme. It has been cut, buffed, and polished to a gorgeous finish that's slick as a ribbon. This VW is accented by the Luggage rack on top and the polished running boards with gravel guards. This was the last year for the thin channel bumpers and they look amazing on this Beetle both front and rear. The headlights and taillights are both in amazing condition along with all the glass and seals. To finish off the look it's sitting on the 15" Wheels with New White Wall Tires along with New Centers and Beauty Rings.
Next, we will look at the interior of this '73. On the inside it's done in the Beige Color Scheme that flows perfectly with the exterior combo. The bucket seats are in great condition along with the rear seat. In between the front seats you'll find the Four Speed Shifter and E Brake. Also the door panels are in great condition. This '73 has the manual windows that go up and down with ease. Looking at the dash you can see that this Beetle has been very well cared for and that the factory gauges look great. Inside the trunk is all solid and has had a new liner installed.
Finally, we will get to the driveline of this Volkswagen. It's powered by the correct AK Engine Coded 1600 CC Engine. Everything in the engine bay is in great condition and all the metal is solid. The engine is set up with the 34PICT-3 Carb. In '73, VW did a mid-year start to use the alternator instead of the Generator and this Beetle is equipped with the alternator. Underneath it is all solid and the floors look excellent. On the highway it runs and drives great. It goes through the gears smooth and handles as it should. All of the brakes feel to be well maintained as they stop great as well.
