We all love an entry-level classic like this 1973 Volkswagen Beetle. It's the kind of vintage car that is turnkey ready to go out cruising, and any time you want to upgrade your classic, everything is a simple and affordable.
This Beetle shows exactly what's so fun about the VW custom car culture. This one is far from stock with custom chrome bumpers, surfer-style waves running down the sides, and flush-mounted taillights. Of course there's also no missing the Spirit of America wheels, and the taller rear tires that give this one an aggressive forward-leaning stance. Beneath all of these features that make this one standout are still the elements that made us all fall in love with Volkswagen. It's in everything from the solid engineering (the doors still close with the reassuring "thunk") to the now iconic rounded good looks.
The interior shows more evidence of custom work. You'll notice it the moment you open the door and see the panel's stitch design, and the gray fabric buckets are much more comfortable than what came from the factory. You can rest your left hand on the sports steering wheel, and your right one will enjoy the performance shifter. But the classic car experience is more than just for the driver. That's why your passengers can enjoy upgraded features such as the AM/FM stereo with iPod connector, cup holders, and a full view through the glass sunroof.
The familiar 1600 cc air-cooled flat four engine is a big part of the Beetle's appeal with its bulletproof reliability, and familiar whistling exhaust note. These are easily upgrade-able, and this one already has a few added performance parts to squeeze extra HP out of this powerplant. This Super Beetle has dual carburetors on the trusty 4 cylindar. This is linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most out of the motor. As many VW fans already know, this is a higher end Super Beetle. That means a better steering box, bigger brakes, and a new MacPherson strut front end suspension. This is improved even further with a strut tower brace in the trunk and modern tires at all four corners. So for those who want to drive and enjoy their classics on the open road, this is a nice way to experience a vintage VW.
