in Boynton Beach, Florida

PLEASE NOTE: This vehicle has been sold. However, there are more listings for 1973 Volkswagen Beetle. See them all »
Will consider a trade for a 1950's through 1960's VW Bus and or best offer.

I have almost $5,000.00 in the engine alone. This is a 1973 standard VW Bug that I bought from a young United States Marine in Orlando Florida. The 1600 engine was shot and the car was originally Red with a white interior. Below is a listing of parts and items that were replaced. I should just list what is original it would be a shorter list. This build took me almost three years and was a labor of love.
Engine is a 1914CC professionally built by Paul at J.B. Bugs Jenson Beach, Florida
