Classic Car Overview

The Volkswagen Beetle has grown a huge following from many different groups of automotive enthusiasts from hot rodders to hippies these cars have been adored for generations! This 1973 Super Beetle has been well maintained over the years and a recent restoration to bring it back to its former glory. In 2014 the car was stripped down, sand blasted, and put back together piece by piece using new screws and gaskets. The fenders were all replaced with new ones and the whole body was treated with an anti-rust coating and then painted over with a gorgeous two-tone orange and black color combination. Inside the Super Beetle all the panels were lined with Dynomat to reduce road noise and limit vibrations. The floors were then covered in new carpets, reupholstered 1973 rear seat reinstalled, and new Corveau sport seats installed up front. The rare black headliner was installed and all of the sunroof components were refurbished. Overall the interior looks great and is very comfortable even on a longer drive! Another subtle change to this Beetle includes the more sought after 1960 s front and rear bumpers that really set the look of this car off right. There were some big differences between the Beetle and the Super Beetle especially in 1973. These included a superior front suspension with spring instead of the torsion bars, the body was extended 2 over the regular Beetle, and the windshield was curved for less wind resistance. These upgrades made a dramatic difference in the ride quality and performance of the beetle and are a ton of fun to drive! The 1600cc air-cooled engine is plenty of powerful and paired with the 4-speed manual transmission adding to the sporty feel. This Super Beetle is a great car for someone looking for a weekend cruiser or something to take down to the local car show. This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.
