Classic Car Overview

It sure looks like the days of inexpensive Beetles are drawing to a close, which is probably a good thing. This cheerful red 1973 VW Super Beetle is still an economical way to join the hobby, and youll quickly find that theres a large group of folks out there who still think these are wonderful cars. Is there anything about the VW Beetle that hasnt already been said? Theres more than one reason why they have endured for decades as the worlds most popular car, and this one makes it easy to understand why theyve recently started taking off as legitimate collectables. The cheeky good looks impressive build quality all work together to make one fantastic hobby car. This Beetle has been lovingly maintained, and the fact that it has spent most of that life in a warm climate has helped. The 2013 repaint is pretty close to the original color and looks exactly right on the vintage runabout. Everything lines up neatly and the doors open and close with a precision that belies the cars affordable price tag, and while its not a show car, it still looks great. The Super Beetle offered a curved windshield, larger indicator lights, and subtly reshaped body panels, but the overall look is pure Beetle. The black interior is an excellent complement to the bright red bodywork, and the textured vinyl does a good job of keeping you cool even on warm days. The Super Beetle was upgraded inside, as well, including a more stylish instrument panel, although it still embraced the single gauge motif with the gas gauge inside the speedometer face. All the switchgear has a very no-nonsense look typical of German cars of the period and the leather-wrapped steering wheel has a substantial feel. The upholstery, carpets, and door panels are all in decent condition with very little wear (theres one small tear on the passengers seat), and it includes the original AM radio which might be due for an upgrade. The forward-mounted trunk is a little scruffy, but includes original cardboard panels to keep it tidy. The engine was rebuilt a few years ago to stock specifications, and the 1600 cc flat-four still whistles along without complaints. With just a recent tune-up and a Pertronix electronic ignition system, its an excellent runner that feels strong, especially with a 4-speed manual transmission behind it. It starts easily with that distinctive VW whistling exhaust note, and delivers adequate performance for around-town errands. It remains quite stock, from the carburetor to the generator to the air ducts, with the only visible upgrade being the chrome air cleaner. Stir the 4-speed manual properly and its entertaining to drive, thanks to a stable suspension and decent brakes, which never seem to work very hard on the lightweight VW. Its original underneath, so its not perfect, but its just about right for a car youre going to want to drive. Stock steel wheels carry chrome hubcaps and recent 165R15 wide whitewall radials that really dress the Bug up nicely. Youll probably find that everyone is your friend when you drive a Beetle, and the way the market is moving, they wont be this affordable for much longer. Call today!
