For Sale: 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

This 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is vintage, fun, and extra stylish. That's why it makes for a terrific drop-top classic when offered for such an obtainable price.

This was the first-year for the Super Beetle, and so it's a true classic that offers German build quality with updated versatility. In fact, it's one of the few years that gives you the improvements in the design while still keeping the classic windshield profile. Of course, that's not the only distinctive part of this VW. It has a nice shade of yellow that has a cheery look and will harmonize with the landscape on any sunset adventures. And the fresh canvas roof is done in a distinct tan to give this Beetle a unique and sophisticated style.

The interior is a thoughtful and vintage presentation. The tan door cards have the same stylish presentation against the creamy yellow as we saw on the roof color. And the tweed-like seat covers coordinate with all of this while also keeping a button-top look on the bucket seats. You get the classic features you love, like the single VDO gauge and the thin/grippy steering wheel with Wolfsburg center cap. Plus, there's an upgraded feel with premium pieces, like the coco mats, modern speakers, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with modern Bluetooth.

This was also the debut year for the 1600cc motor - the largest in the series. It looks well-maintained everywhere from the hoses to the Solex carb. It loves to run while giving that hypnotic air-cooled hum. In fact, this one was truly built to be a drive. The Super Beetle revived a better MacPherson strut front suspension, and this also has front 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.

A distinct style, great features and timeless appeal all come together in this first-year Super Beetle. Time to chase the sunset in this drop-top VW. Call today!!!
