The classic Bug has the appeal of a classic that was built for driving and easy to keep it that way. And this 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle goes beyond just a solid-looking icon to deliver a value-priced car that also has some noticeable upgrades.

We love the Beetle because it has a silhouette that is instantly distinguishable from the rest of the herd. And while the evergreen styling was the opposite of Detroit's model changes, this example can't help but have a little American-style flair with an excellent shine on the chrome bumpers, dual exhaust tips, and hub caps. But this is a true German, and the fundamentals like the body seals, rubber side steps, and body gaps continue to have the precision quality look. It's all dipped in a vivid red that has the right shine to show off the curvaceous body, but it's also nothing too fancy to keep you from taking this classic to an outdoor concert and parking under a shade tree. That's the beauty of a VW, it gives you distinction without worry.

Volkswagen practically invented the idea of the basic black that's clean, stylish, and functional. High-back bucket seats up front and sturdy components that don't easily show dirt make this everyday useful. And we've grown to love the style of pieces like the steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest and single VDO gauge pack. This even has a touch of modern comfort with a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner stereo w/aux input.

Volkswagen's flat-four motor has a hardy reputation, and we even have receipts documenting a comprehensive tune-up in 2016 that included the clutch, main seal, hoses, fluids, and brakes. This is the 1600cc motor, which is the largest of the series. And since this is a strong-runner, it makes for an ideal setup that still remains faithful to the classic VW style. You'll love the air-cooled hum that's unique to these Beetles, and the four-speed manual transmission gives you full control of this motor's soundtrack. There has been suspension maintenance over the years, and this is a better-handling Super Beetle. So really have a classic that wants to be driven.

The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and service manuals. This is the sharp-looking and value-minded classic that delivers the heart of the original VW's appeal. Call today!!!
