Back in the 30s only 1 person out of 50 in Germany owned a vehicle.
They really couldn't afford anything more elaborate than a
motorcycle. Well to rectify that, in 1937, the German Labour Group
introduced the iconic Volkswagen or in German..."The Peoples Car."
These cars proved to be very popular, so much so that they are
still being made today. Although their models have expanded to
other names like the Golf, Passat, etc the Beetle is one of the
most widely recognized cars throughout history. There are entire
clubs dedicated to preserving their history and even children can
point them out while playing "Slug Bug" or "Punch Buggy." To
commemorate passing the Ford Model T's records sales Volkswagen
introduced their first limited edition car known as the Super
Beetle. The 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible you see here
is an extremely clean car and has been fully restored. It has been
extremely well cared for since so despite being driven it is in
freshly restored condition. It currently resides with its second
owner who purchased the car in 2015 from the original owners
family. This was the last year for some of the VW original stylings
which changed in 1973 making the '72 very desirable. The original
owner did the restoration and the car comes with the manuals and
some extra parts. The body is very solid with no rust and painted
in a Red base coat with clear coat. It has a very slick finish.
That Red is paired with a new Black convertible canvas top and it
does come with a boot cover. All of the chrome/trim is in excellent
condition throughout. The car has a new windshield with an electric
windshield washer pump that is an upgrade from the original. The
car rides on a nice set of aftermarket Black Empi wheels which look
In back the car has a new 1600cc engine which was actually won by
the previous owner at a VW car show. It runs very well and utilizes
a rebuilt carburetor, serpentine belt system, electronic ignition,
new battery, and new fuel pump. Other nice upgrades include a
custom exhaust system and the addition of front disc brakes with a
new master cylinder. The rest of the drive train is the original
components but they were all redone during the restoration. The
manual 4 speed transmission shifts smoothly with zero issues.
The interior of the car was completely redone in a two tone Gray
and Black tweed. It has high back bucket seats up front and 3 point
seat belts which are a nice upgrade. It also has Coco floor mats in
place to protect the new Gray carpeting. The dash has the original
style layout but has been fitted with an Alpine radio with
bluetooth, CD player and push button ignition. In front of the
driver sits a Grant Formula GT steering wheel and everything inside
the car looks great. The trunk up front offers plenty of storage
space and was entirely reupholstered as well.
If you are in the market for a nice 72 VW and want nothing but the
best then this is one to check out. It is an excellent driver and a
very clean example of the Super Beetle convertible.
This beautiful VW Super Beetle could be yours for $23,950.00!
