This 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle is everything you love about the legend. That means extra features, a hardy motor, and that iconic style. And of course, it also keeps the sensible price.
This is a great year to own a Beetle. 1971 was when production peaked and it was the introduction of the Super Beetle. So this one has that little extra bit of significance. But more than just history. The shape is an icon of the road, and this one has the clean look that reminds many people of their first car. There's even just a hint of extra color coordination as the stock white wheels match the white body, and the bright wheel covers go with the bumpers, dual exhaust tips, and added fender ascents.
Inside, this one continues the look of classic quality. All the right pieces are in place, including the black matched dash, vent windows, and grippy floor shifter. The front seats have been upgraded to wider buckets finished in a comfortable cloth, but it still coordinates nicely with everything else inside, so it doesn't take away for the stock appearance. The classic steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest still gives an excellent view of the simple/elegant VDO gauge. This truly feels like rolling nostalgia.
Volkswagen's flat-four motor is a world-renowned hardy powerplant. The 1600cc unit here has a tidy setup thanks to proper care with good belts and hoses. It also has maintenance items like a new fuel pump and fuel filter. It fires up nicely with that unmistakable air-cooled hum, and the four-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly to give you the ideal classic Bug experience. And don't forget the Super Beetle means features a better steering box, bigger brakes, and an upgraded independent front suspension with sway bar.
The Beetle was often sold on the power of love, and that's all this one needs to keep it feeling like a great classic. These are easy to own and easy to enjoy cars are always a great ideal. Call today!!!
