Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is pleased to present this iconic
1973 Volkswagen Beetle. In the 1930s, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche started
with a steel platform chassis and added all wheel independent
torsion-bar suspension. The rear-engine platform gave additional
traction, as well as effortless steering. Styled by Austrian
designer Erwin Komenda, the shape of the Beetle was for strength,
not looks; a curved piece of metal simply has more strength than a
flat one does. The body attaches with eighteen bolts to the chassis
which featured a central structural tunnel. The small two-door car
could accommodate four passengers while providing storage under the
front hood and behind the rear seat. Not only is the air-cooled,
rear-engine VW Beetle one of the most iconic cars in classic car
history, it is the fourth highest-selling automobile of all time.
During the original Beetle's 65-year production run, more than 21
million were built world-wide. The major change for the 1973 Beetle
involved a curved panoramic windshield for the Super Beetle that
was 43 percent bigger than the old one that added much better
visibility & this example of that famous German engineering reminds
us of a time gone by! This has the 1585cc engine, 4-speed manual
transmission, good looking paint, newer looking vinyl seat
coverings, seat belts and an almost new set of rubber, so for more
