For Sale: 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

A cool color combo, nice features, and a strong running nature all mean this 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle is an ideal timeless classic that's easy to enjoy.

This VW is crossing the half-century threshold to be a very cool classic. But while some cars have a history that's a mystery, this one is a little better known. We're told the consignor bought this Beetle from a family friend who had owned it since the early 1990s. So it has been in well-respected care for over half its life thus far. This level of respect is shown in the details where the body panels are quite good, and the trim is clean and complete. There's a nice shine to the bumpers, hub caps, dual exhaust tips, and more, but overall, this one just likes to be a very correct and classic Bug. That's why the factory-correct Brilliant Orange still keeps a touch of its glow-in-the-dark vibrancy, but it makes sure to have the overall relaxed finish that's daily driver kind of easy.

The black interior looks good against the orange exterior. The full presentation has a nice classic look, but you can also feel it has been given the right fresher investments in the quality of the door panels, carpeting, upholstery, and the other fundamentals. Even the AM radio is still in the dash as a display. You have driver-oriented features, like the high-back bucket seats, floor shifter for the four-speed, stylish single VDO gauge, and grippy steering wheel with the Wolfsburg crest in the center. And there are nice details, like the added pop-out rear windows and a clean carpeted trunk for the larger Super Beetle.

In the rear is the classic Volkswagen powerplant. This 1600cc motor was the largest displacement from the series, and this is the desirable one with dual port heads. It also has newer investments in pieces, like the Solex carburetor, blue Bosch coil, and EMPI distributor. So you have a motor that's famous for being hardy that also has been given investment to keep it a strong runner. That's why this example makes for such a good driver. You also have the Super Beetle's updated front suspension, and the upgraded stopping power of front disc brakes.

This is the bright orange Beetle that's celebrating its golden anniversary. And it has the good care and strong-running nature that makes it a terrific driver's classic. Call today!!!
