Classic Car Overview

The models already one of a kind appearance pairs with a uniquely decorated exterior to make it seem like this 1974 Volkswagen Beetle could have very well provided its brand of dependable transportation for some of the singers participating in that universally famous Coca Cola commercial of long ago. This specimen captures the model at a great time in its history, with a variety of factory-issue mechanical advances on board to offer an improved driving experience over its predecessors. It wears a coat of bright red painted accented by vintage-era Coca Cola decals on its doors, making this rolling icon a potentially effective visual accompaniment for a local diner serving its advertised product. While at close range you can see that this classic could use some refinement at the hands of a paint pro, as well as a trip to the re-plating shop if the goal is to restore a top shelf appearance, rest assured that the cars historical significance and singular presence will have no trouble attracting plenty of attention just as it stands. Its well aligned exterior suggest that its had the good fortune to have been steered clear of any immovable objects - the front and rear bumpers sit level and show no marked blemishes, with black rubber centers that are still pretty fresh and the collection of cabin glass is nice and clear. The sizable luggage rack gracing the roof is a definite conversation piece. The black vinyl interior has seen the needed attention to regain its former glory and still retains its thoroughly vintage aesthetics. The high-backed vinyl buckets show very little wear, with no creasing on their bolsters and are bracketed by door panels that are in excellent condition. An aftermarket steering wheel takes the place of the original on the column and as you peer beyond it youll see the models signature single display instrument cluster, still fully functional. Every control knob and switch is securely in place and an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod compatibility - along with the steering wheel the only deviation from stock youll find inside the cabin - is on hand to tend to your audio needs. Despite their compact dimensions the VWs of this era had a respectable amount of interior room - the front buckets are fairly widely spaced for plenty of shoulder clearance and theres a good amount of legroom in back. Abundant storage capacity up front will accommodate luggage for weekend getaways and the solid running condition of this classic makes them a definite option. As a 74, this Bug is powered by a 1600cc engine that not only offers more displacement than its early counterparts but is also equipped with twin port cylinder heads for more efficient combustion, as well as a vastly improved oil cooler to keep operating temperatures under control. Still fed by a period correct one-barrel carburetor, the engine pairs with a 4 speed manual transmission that rounds out a drivetrain supplying steady acceleration and smooth shifts. Everything inside the rear compartment suggests the car has received consistent maintenance - the surfaces of the components are nice and clean and the belts and hoses appear fresh. An independent rear suspension helps smooth out rough roads while front disc brakes provide fade resistant stopping ability as this pivotal German classic cruises on a set of 15 factory wheels that are in surprisingly clean condition. The undercarriage appears well-positioned for plenty more future miles. Few models can match its evocative appearance and storied heritage, so this 1974 Volkswagen Beetle presents a very compelling opportunity. Call today!
