Classic Car Overview

Im happy to announce we have bugs here at Classic Auto Mall. Oh, certainly not the kind that you would swat at, but these were made in Wolfsberg, Germany, by the millions and infested the USA over the years. This classic 1972 version is in nice condition with some recent work to keep things in order, including new carpet, body seals, a rebuilt carburetor, valve adjustment and valve cover gaskets. So, if you want you can now take this car to our famous test lake, and go for a floating dip, just like the ads! (although we would have no way of getting you back)! Exterior Marina Blue covers all the curved panels and bumpers and presents nicely with some minute inclusions seen throughout. Body panels all fit nicely, and even as late as 1972 VW beetles were still utilizing the exterior nonintegrated fender attached by running board design literally from the 1920s. Chrome bumpers are nice, and badging is showing just a little delamination and wear. Glass and surrounding trim is good and since this is a pre-elephant footprint taillight car the taillights are in proportion to the car. A black canvas insulated convertible top in very nice condition with a glass rear window moves up and down smoothly and manually. Interior New carpeting in beautiful deep black covers all the floors neatly and is also seen in the front trunk lining. Floating above are black vinyl high back buckets with molded woven pattern inserts and smooth black bolsters. A rear bench is seen, and all seats are excellent showing very little wear. Door panels covered in black vinyl are straight and true with a nifty lower storage pouch. A small curved dash fronts all this beautiful vinyl and has a stainless panel with extra imbedded instruments and gauges, a Craig AM/FM/Cassette radio and framed by the textured black vinyl dash is a wood appliqu?? glovebox in front of the passenger. Out of the sea of carpet rises the straight gearshift lever topped with a wood knob. Drivetrain The 1600cc flat 4-cylinder engine has undergone a recent carburetor rebuild, and valve adjustment. For that carburetor, we show its a 1-barrel Solex brand. There is a 4-speed manual transmission attached. Undercarriage Some surface rust and previous floor pan repairs are seen, but structurally sound with no invasive rust. New tires, restored wheels and wheel cylinders have been put on. Independent coil spring suspension on all 4 corners, as well as drum brakes all around can be seen. Also, the shiny mini exhaust tips go rearward and poke out from under the rear bumper. Drive-Ability A quick startup and Im met with that tinny exhaust sound that can only be heard on an older VW. The car ran smoothly, shifted effortlessly, and handles corners very nicely. All was in good working order for my drive. Nicely cared for, with some recent upgrades and rebuilds, she runs smoothly, and is certainly a bug that will catch your eyes.
