Stk 2354 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle
This fully restored 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle is a fine example of a popular Bug model. The restoration began in 2010 with a very solid Florida vehicle and resulted in a virtually stock VW except for engine enhancements and suspension upgrades. Our owner has supplied a comprehensive folder of restoration documentation/receipts. Many of the new components came from Mid-America/Volkswagen. The exterior was professionally refinished in Shantung Yellow (original color) in 2013. Body panels fit beautifully and all body weather-stripping is new. There is an impressive set of aluminum running boards in place of the originals and five-spoke alloys provide a beautiful contrast. The interior has been redone in black vinyl (2013) and the dash is classic Volkswagen - a radio-delete model with no power windows, no power seats, no power locks and no air conditioning - but still very cool. Just roll down the windows and have some fun. This Beetle is powered by a 1600cc flat-four 'boxer' that is housed in a nicely detailed/chromed engine compartment. It was rebuilt in 2014 with minor performance modifications. Carburation looks to be an Empi 2V intake set-up with progressive linkage. There is a mild street-cam lope and the stock exhaust has been replaced with a free-flowing system that sounds great. The clutch/flywheel were also replaced during the build and the 4-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly. This Bug pulls hard. Totally rebuilt 4-wheel drum brakes provide stopping power. The entire front Macpherson Strut suspension has been rebuilt and a top strut-tower stabilizer rod has been added to improve handling. Look at the photos. This is a professionally restored Bug that someone is going to have a lot of fun with. Drive it, or show it - an outstanding classic. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS"
