For Sale: 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle in Concord, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

Freshly restored and upgraded in all the best places makes this 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle instantly attractive. The fact that this classic is still so affordable makes it irresistible.

This VW completed a comprehensive restoration only about a year ago. It started with a car that had spent more years waiting in a carport than out on the road, and so the odometer is even believed to be within a few thousand miles of the full car's actual mileage. This low-mileage machine was then taken down to bare metal and carefully massaged until it was this Ruby Red sleek machine you see now. New chrome bumpers, bright trim, and polished dual exhaust tips add to the shining package. And there are even some cool touches, like the older set of tail lights and the white wheels with whitewalls.

Those white wheels also go with the white interior for a hint of sophisticated coordination. It has a stock look, but there is an upgrade in quality you'll understand everywhere from the extra sound insulation to the fresh feel of the new TMI seats. It makes for a true classic that will probably will exceed even your nostalgia. One place they can't mask the upgrading is the stereo. It's a modern AM/FM receiver with USB input and Bluetooth. It connects to a full Kicker speaker system with subwoofer. So now you have the best in driving music.

You'll love lifting the rear hatch to show off the fresh motor. There's a ton of investment here that starts with an EMPI bubble top aluminum engine case and EMPI GTV2 heads w/92mm single springs. It makes for a strong 1776cc motor. This is also built with AA Performance pistons, chromoly engine case studs, Engle cam, high performance lifters, a serpentine belt system, and topped with dual EMPI 34 EPC carburetors. There's so much work that went into this mighty powerhouse that we suggest you call for all the details. It makes for a classic that's eager to hit the road, and the four-speed manual transmission with new clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing puts you in firm control of it all. The undercarriage photos show a presentation that's as fresh as the rest of the car - right down to the struts and bushings. So you have confidence out on the road. And the front disc brakes mean confident stopping power, too.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and restoration photos. It helps really take you on the journey that created such a stunning VW. So if you're looking for a fresh, strong, and affordable classic, you know this is the one to put in your garage. Call now!
