For Sale: 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle in Mesa, Arizona

$18,995  

Vehicle Description

This 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle was given a comprehensive restoration to deliver a VW that looks vibrant on the outside, vintage and comfortable inside, sturdy in the engine bay, and a better all-around driver. So if you're looking for the Bug that's already a great all-around classic, then this is the one.


This car was given a full professional restoration that was complete in 2016. So the yellow paint has the shine of a newer application that looks vibrant day or night. The work on this one was all about creating a very authentic package. So you won't find wild upgrades, and instead, you'll appreciate the work in the fundamentals. It's in the bright chrome bumpers, shining headlight bezels, pliable window rubber, good light lenses, and full length trim that loves to show off the Beetle's unique shape. So this really lets you appreciate the design that comes with this first-year Super Beetle.


The black interior looks quite nice against the exterior yellow. And all the vibrant yellow interior steel that was painted during the restoration also proves it. As you look at the seats, carpeting, and door panels, you can recognize a solid investment to keep this deep, dark, and fresh. Even the front buckets had new foam padding installed. While they invested in this car, they also made sure to keep this classic looking quite stock. You have the original-style steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest, correct VDO gauge, and even a period-correct AM radio powers on. So it kinda feels like this VW loves to turn back the clock.


In the back is the familiar 1600 cc air-cooled flat-four engine. This is an era-correct block, and it's believed to be original to the car. But the full restoration means plenty of updating in from the last nearly half-century. It now has a fresh look everywhere from the fan housing to the hoses. So the famously hardy VW powerplant fires up and runs with added confidence. The Super Beetle is an important step forward in a better handling car, and this one takes that even further. The restoration included new ball joints, performance struts, and urethane bushing. The brake system was redone with new hydraulics and an upgraded front disc kit. It makes for a confident and crisp driver. Plus, with the control of a four-speed manual transmission and that hypnotic air-cooled hum, you know this one is just ready to hit the road.


The sale comes complete with owner's manual and restoration photos that show you this VW's full journey. It's a bright Bug that was built for true classic car fun. Call today!!!
