For Sale: 1974 Volkswagen Beetle in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Classic Car Addict is excited to present this awesome 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle for sale in our Mesa, AZ showroom. Volkswagen has had a rich history of classic, inspirational, and iconic models. And few cars have been as culturally significant as the Volkswagen Beetle. Nowadays, the classic Beetle has become a sought-after collector's car. Not only are parts in ample supply thanks to the millions that were produced, but the appreciation for the "love bug" is as strong today as it was when it launched. The Super Beetle was a vast improvement over the standard Beetles. Instead of using the standard Beetles torsion bar the Super Beetle came with a MacPherson strut front suspension assembly. This change gave the Super Beetle a greater turning radius and improved its driving quality. Another distinction between the Super Beetle and the standard Beetle is their size. With a slightly longer and wider body than the VW Beetle the Super Beetle expanded its storage capacity. This made it possible to fit the spare tire and still have room for groceries. The orange paint has the right color vibe you want for a 1970s machine, and it has a good gloss that lets the sunshine show off the curves that make the VW unique. The brightwork is complete in places like the hubcaps, bezels, and full-length side trim, but there are also areas with added distinction. Fit and finish are decent all around and this would be a smart buy just because it's in such good shape! It still offers early Beetle styling cues like the flat windshield and smaller fender and rear marker lights, making it a favorite among VW enthusiasts. The chrome is quite good, the glass is in great shape, and the running boards are nicely trimmed. The interior has the basic sturdy VW feel, and it has the look of investments in all the right fundamentals. The high-back front bucket seats are a hallmark of these later VWs, and they offer the kind of support you want for all-day cruising. Rear seat does have a rip as well as the front driver seat. The original speedometer/fuel gauge setup gives you the basics and all gauges work properly. It does have an updated CD/MP3 with AM/FM tuner. VW's familiar 1600CC flat-four whistles away under the rear deck. You do get a very nicely recently finished 1973 VW 1600cc engine. The 4-speed is typical VW vague, but the suspension feels buttoned-down and competent, and the exhaust system gives it that traditional VW sound. A stock-spec flat-four like this was never about pure speed, but they are hardy and ready for the road. Don't miss out on this awesome piece of history and let's go cruisin' man. The VW will be sold on a clean Arizona title. Also be sure to check out our website for 150+HD photos and our YouTube page to see full walkaround and driving videos.
