Are you a VW Beetle collector with the itch for another one? How about this 1973 Beetle Convertible? Dressed in Saturn Yellow, the car?s paint and trim are in overall very good order. The car?s bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the frunk is in the same condition. The chrome bumpers are in satisfactory shape and fit tightly to the body mounts while the black, vinyl folding top is in good, original order. It reportedly has more than $2,000 worth of recent maintenance and parts. This Bug rolls on radials, size 165R15 at every corner. Each one is mounted on a steel wheel topped with a vented chrome wheel cover. The tires are in very good shape while the wheels are in good, original order.

Inside, the car?s contrasting black vinyl interior is in overall satisfactory shape, with its front bucket seats and rear bench. A four-spoke steering wheel faces the driver but the horn and wipers are inoperable. The inner door liners and dashboard with VDO gauges are in good, original shape with no cracks. A floor-mounted shift lever and a Bowman Starfire XXI AM/FM radio complete the interior. Nineteen seventy-three models featured significantly enlarged ?elephant foot? taillamps mounted in reshaped rear fenders. In the engine bay, the oil-bath air cleaner gave way to a dry element filter and the generator was replaced with an alternator. The 1302/Super became the 1303 with a new taller wrap-around windscreen. The changes to the cowl and windshield resulted in slight redesign of the front hood. The instrument panel, formerly shared with the standard Beetle, was all-new and incorporated a raised speedometer pod, rocker-style switches and side-window defrosters. Competition to this Beetle in 1973 included American Motors? Gremlin, Chevrolet?s Vega, Datsun?s B210, Dodge?s Colt, Ford?s Pinto, Honda?s Civic, Pontiac?s Astre and Toyota?s Corolla.
