Beetle 1974

Title Status --
Exterior Color Sand Tan

This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle is the one for those who love the classic VW style and love to show it off around town. That's because you'll see plenty of added care and investment in this Bug to keep it a strong runner that has a ton of added driving appeal.

The Sand Tan paint has the right earth-tone vibe you want for a 1970s machine, and it has a good gloss that lets the sunshine show off all the curves that make the VW unique. The brightwork is complete in places like the hubcaps, bezels, and full-length side trim, but there are also areas with added distinction. They left off the rubber insert in the bumpers so that you get the look of more chrome, and the polished dual exhaust tips are a bit larger for added flair. And peaking of distinctive brightness, those LED headlights look cool during the day with their color-matched ring. And at night they give this Beetle a superior way to light the way forward.

The interior has the basic sturdy VW feel, and it has the look of investments in all the right fundamentals. That's why it feels fresh on the door panels, carpeting, and upholstery. The high-back front bucket seats are a hallmark of these later VWs, and they offer the kind of support you want for all-day cruising. And the grippy steering wheel with classic Wolfsburg crest, classic pedals, single VDO gauge, and a sturdy stick shift are all part of what makes a VW fun.

When you lift the rear hatch, the engine bay tells more of this car's story of a solid investment. It will be hard to find a tidier-looking motor, and the way it fires up and runs reaffirms the understanding of plenty spent on good care. The 1600cc powerhouse was the largest of the series. A stock-spec flat-four like this was never about pure speed (although they are very hardy and ready for upgrades.) But Ferdinand Porsche's engineering and the control of a crisp four-speed manual transmission really put the control of this nimble classic firmly in your hands. And as you get this one out on the road, you can even feel it has been geared well for highway cruising.

This is the cool classic that was built for driving fun. So if you enjoy a good VW, you know this is a stand-out Bug. Call today!!!
