This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle is the one for those who love the
classic VW style and love to show it off around town. That's
because you'll see plenty of added care and investment in this Bug
to keep it a strong runner that has a ton of added driving
The Sand Tan paint has the right earth-tone vibe you want for a
1970s machine, and it has a good gloss that lets the sunshine show
off all the curves that make the VW unique. The brightwork is
complete in places like the hubcaps, bezels, and full-length side
trim, but there are also areas with added distinction. They left
off the rubber insert in the bumpers so that you get the look of
more chrome, and the polished dual exhaust tips are a bit larger
for added flair. And peaking of distinctive brightness, those LED
headlights look cool during the day with their color-matched ring.
And at night they give this Beetle a superior way to light the way
The interior has the basic sturdy VW feel, and it has the look of
investments in all the right fundamentals. That's why it feels
fresh on the door panels, carpeting, and upholstery. The high-back
front bucket seats are a hallmark of these later VWs, and they
offer the kind of support you want for all-day cruising. And the
grippy steering wheel with classic Wolfsburg crest, classic pedals,
single VDO gauge, and a sturdy stick shift are all part of what
makes a VW fun.
When you lift the rear hatch, the engine bay tells more of this
car's story of a solid investment. It will be hard to find a
tidier-looking motor, and the way it fires up and runs reaffirms
the understanding of plenty spent on good care. The 1600cc
powerhouse was the largest of the series. A stock-spec flat-four
like this was never about pure speed (although they are very hardy
and ready for upgrades.) But Ferdinand Porsche's engineering and
the control of a crisp four-speed manual transmission really put
the control of this nimble classic firmly in your hands. And as you
get this one out on the road, you can even feel it has been geared
well for highway cruising.
This is the cool classic that was built for driving fun. So if you
enjoy a good VW, you know this is a stand-out Bug. Call
