Nicely invested, nicely presented, and nicely priced - this 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle has been given the right attention to be the ideal timelessly styled classic. And while this is pure vintage, you'll also discover some worthwhile upgrades, including four-wheel disc brakes.
It's hard not to love a Beetle in such a sunny day color. The Caribbean Turquoise makes your weekend drives feel like you're on island time. And the high gloss finish also lets the sunshine really highlight all the curves of this unique rounded design. Against this tropical blue you have all the right brightwork. There's plenty of shine in the larger pieces like the bumpers, wheel covers, and upgraded running boards. But there's also quality in the smaller details, too, like the dual exhaust tips, vent trim, and the 1973 SB's new unique cowl trim. It truly gets the classic cruiser look correct, right down to the new whitewall tires.
The cream white interior looks good against the turquoise exterior. It looks nice with good upholstery, taut door panels, and newer carpeting. You get the classic elements you love, like the stylish single VDO gauge and steering wheel with the Wolfsburg crest in the center. The 1973 Super Beetles were great for distinct touches like the curved windshield w/new dash and a unique seat design. Because this is a cool cruising classic, you get to enjoy it with the best tunes thanks to an upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo and modern speakers.
This 1600cc motor is a well-maintained powerhouse that loves to run. It fires up cleanly with an air-cooled tune that's eager to please. Plus, it's always great to tell people how the rear mounted engine is an engineering decision that puts the weight over the rear wheels for excellent traction and less power loss. In fact, this one was truly built to be a drive. The Super Beetle revived a better MacPherson strut front suspension, and this particular one was upgraded to four-wheel disc brakes. VW fans know this is still not a speed machine, but the with a hardy motor, sharper handling, and the control of the four-speed manual transmission all come together for quite a nice driving classic.
The 1973 Super Beetles are unique machines, and this one even has been built to be a better all-round driver. It means the hardest decision on this one is how quick can you come and grab this deal. Call today!!!
