The classic bug is a rolling icon that loves to mix easy ownership
with classic car fun. This 1972 Volkswagen Beetle is an ideal
example of that total feeling.
The classic white Beetle just seems to get your mind going. After
all, it seems to really drive home the clean VW design that was
simple, elegant, and absolutely distinct. And on the other side of
the spectrum, we bet there are a few of you thinking about adding
some racing stripes for your own Herbie replica. That's part of the
fun that's at the heart of Beetle ownership. Everyone has an
individual attraction, but we are all united under a seemingly
timeless design. And there are good fundamentals in place with
classic body lines and clean glass. So this has a nice stock style
where you may choose to brighten up the paint for a weekend
project, or this may be the base for your Volksrod project - it's
all possible with a well-built car that has a huge community behind
The blue interior is a distinctive touch, but at its heart remains
the look of classic simplicity and sturdiness. This is the later
era for high-back bucket seats, and so you get the vintage
button-top presentation mixed with a style built for all-day
comfort. There are some handy upgrades, like the cup holder center
console. But overall, this remains a faithful classic, right down
to the working dome light and Wolfsburg crest on the steering
In the rear is the era-correct 1600cc motor. This was the largest
of the series, and so it's always desirable to have. This one has
even been given nice investments like a new carburetor, fuel lines,
and fuel pump - all within the last few months! The air-cooled
motor has a hypnotic tune, and more importantly, no radiator to
boil over. The powerhouse is placed over the driving wheels for
better traction and there is no driveshaft running the length of
the car for a power loss. So these are simple to fix and upgrade,
but they also are a marvel of a smart design. And everything from
the control of the four-speed manual transmission to the grip of
more modern tires gives you the full confidence to enjoy this Bug
to the fullest.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the affordable and fun
classic that's looking for a new garage to call its home. Call
