With a bright and attractive color combination, it's easy to fall in love with the VW Beetle all over again. This 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle convertible is in exactly the right condition to enjoy – fully sorted so you can jump in and go whenever the urge grabs you. Plus it has the interesting AutoStick clutchless shift for those who thought they could never own a Beetle before.
In addition to the Beetle's already sunny disposition, the sunshine yellow finish adds a bright attitude that makes you want to jump in and find a beach. This is a true eye-catching package that uses the folding roof's black color as the inspiration for the wheels and the retro rocker stripe. The total package is a classy and uniform appearance that you don't see everyday. The other classic VW details are all complete, including the chrome bumpers, running boards, and thin dual exhaust pipes.
Inside, the high-back bucket seats that came on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day cruising. This Beetle might look like it's a stick shift, but if you count the pedals, you don't have to be intimidated. VW's optional AutoStick does all the clutch work, and so all you do is row the gears with zero worries about stalling. Another nice feature is a newer AM/FM/CD stereo, because after all, who wants to hit the road without their tunes (especially in a car that just screams 'summertime fun' like this one.) And for an extra sporty touch, there is a new three-spoke steering wheel. But even with all these upgrades, the interior of this VW continues to carry that simple and sturdy feeling that comes from decades of building these cars correctly.
Under the rear hatch is what's believed to be this Beetle's original powerplant. It has been treated to the right maintenance over the years, which means you will be hearing that iconic ticking from VW's 1600cc flat-four for many years to come. As many VW fans already know, this is a Super Beetle. That means an improved steering box, bigger brakes, and a new MacPherson strut front end suspension. Combine this with the grip of modern Kumho tires, and this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW.
Complete with a full file on its maintenance and the owner's manual, this is the Beetle the looks great on the outside, has been kept top-notch in the engine bay, and has a desirable AutoStick to welcome any driver. So all Beetles are friendly, but rarely do you find one as welcoming as this. Call today!!
