Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Las Vegas is pleased to present a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle in Blue with Black Vinyl and Grey Cloth seats and showing 12,800 miles. The Volkswagen Beetle was produced from 1938-2003. The original Beetle was powered by a 25 hp 4-cylinder engine capable of 62 mph which would have allowed it to drive on the Autobahn. By 1970 a new 1600 cc 4 cylinder was added raising the power to 60 hp with twin port cylinder heads and a relocated larger oil cooler. For the 1973 model year new larger "elephant foot" taillamps were added to the rear fender skirts in addition to a dry air filter system with an alternator replacing the previous generator. This example has been upgraded in a few ways including front disc brakes, a 2" narrowed beam exhaust and dual 40 carbs. There has also been new fuel, oil, ball joints, shocks and new dual carbs. The interior has a custom steering-wheel and the headlights have rock screens to protect the lenses. The Beetle has a lowered stance and rides on 205 70 R15's in the rear and 185 65R 15's in the front. The Beetle has become and always will be an iconic design and with no more being made they are becoming scarce.
