For Sale: 1973 Volkswagen Beetle in Lake Mary, Florida


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle. The new larger Beetle was sold as the 1302/1302 S. The sole purpose of the big Beetle was to provide increased luggage capacity, which grew 50%. MacPhearson front suspension was incorporated, like what was used in the Type 4, and the front track was widened. The new suspension layout allowed the spare tire to be positioned flat under the trunk floor, although the car had to be lengthened slightly to accomplish this. This also allowed a reduction in turning radius. To gain additional room, the under-dash panel was lowered, allowing the fuel tank to be shifted rearward. From the windscreen back, the big Beetle was identical to its smaller progenitor, except for having the semi-trailing arm rear suspension as standard equipment. This Beetle comes to us in stunning condition with an incredibly healthy 2055CC stroker engine that propels this bug down the road with gusto. This car is so fun to drive. This one is one of a kind. The interior has been finely upgraded with an incredibly thick padded blue vinyl seats and the tuck and roll motif carries into the trunk where custom panels are in place to cover the power amp up front. Equipped with a nicely appointed sound system this beetle not only sounds great but runs with the best of them. This little bug is a real neat little crawler. Make it yours today.
