The appeal of this 1971 Volkswagen Beetle is black & white,
literally. With a great color scheme inside & out, an upgraded
interior, and an affordable price, this is a great way to enjoy one
of the friendliest car communities going.
Owing a convertible Bug is already a great classic car experience. Volkswagen knew how to produce these bodies with a Teutonic tightness that was still simple to maintain. It's a level of fit and finish that makes the Beetle an enduring icon. The color coordination on this one is a true standout. White is a fun and timeless, especially in this glossy clearcoat hue. It only gets better when the black top that matches the running boards, stripe in the chrome bumpers, and the rubber seals along the trunk and fender lines. Of course we didn't forget about how the black minilite-style wheels bring it all together. But this is a drop top, and you'll be taking the folding top down quite often, that's why the convertible boot is a matching black with white piping, so this car looks even better with the roof down.
Since you'll be spending plenty of time opened up to the world, the interior continues this coordinating theme. It looks exceptionally fresh thanks to new floor mats and seat covers. You might have noticed that the comfortable high-back buckets are now covered in a comfortable cloth, which is an upgrade you'll be thankful for on every hot day. But that's far from the only interior upgrade on this Bug. There are some pieces you recognize immediately like the cool custom sports steering wheel and the machine-turned aluminum panel that frames the VDO gauge. Other items like the cup holders in the center console might not get noticed until it's time to take them for granted.
Under the rear hatch is what's believed to be this Beetle's original powerplant. The 1600cc motor fires up easily with a magical buzz that only an air-cooled motor can. These were always far from the most powerful motors out there, but it's the engineering that makes the VW legendary. The rear-mounted four-cylinder helps give the car good traction, and doesn't have the power loss associated with a large driveshaft running the length of the car. The four-cylinder is built to be stout and run all day without overheating thanks to air cooling. Also, you get to make the most out of this motor with the control of the four-speed manual transmission. The result is a zippy little car. Plus, as many VW fans already know, this is a Super Beetle. That means an improved steering box and a new MacPherson strut front end suspension. Plus, this one has even been upgraded to front disc brakes for added stopping power. So for those who want to drive their classics, this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW.
