This 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is part of that big
tradition of fun top-down cars made to hit the road. There's even
been a recent full servicing making sure this one runs strong to
give you that unmistakable air-cooled tune that makes the VW a
We always love the Beetle because it looks like nothing else out
there on the road. It makes you part of a special camaraderie every
time you spot another classic Bug out on the road. It's a culture
that thrives on individual style, and the value price leaves room
in your budget to really personalize this one. Nerf bar bumpers?
Electric-level paint? Full Volksrod conversion? It all lets your
imagination wonder. The first step is even in place with a brand
new convertible top that comes with the sale.
The black roof looks good against red paint, and so you'll be happy
that there's also an all-black interior underneath. This Super
Beetle was the final evolution of the VW's interior. It gave you a
dash with a logical layout and vent upgrades, but it never lost the
classic spirit of the single large VDO gauge. This was even the
first year for the larger wraparound windshield. The great thing
about the Beetle is that they are small in size, but are done to be
surprisingly accommodating. These later models also had
exceptionally comfortable high-back bucket seats. Plus, this one
already has some nice driver-oriented upgrades, like the
wood-rimmed Grant sports steering wheel and EMPI shifter.
The heart of this car's appeal is in its engine. The 1600cc motor
was the largest offered in the series. Plus, this one was just
given a full professional service. It included investments
everywhere from the wires to the carburetor. So you have a hardy
motor that really knows how to remain a strong runner. The rear
engine layout is great for engineering, and the four-speed manual
transmission gives you firm control over it all. This one really is
built for driving. The Super Beetle gave you an upgraded front
suspension and improved braking. Plus, the upgraded EMPI GT-style
wheels also lets you mount better modern tires.
This is the strong-running open-top VW that gets your mind thinking
about all the different ways it can be fun to make it an extension
of you. Call now!
