Super Beetle 1972

Exterior Color Red

A car like this 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is an ideal classic. It has been under long-term ownership for over three decades, and when you look at the actual mileage odometer, it averaged to about only 1,800 miles annually. It makes for a solid classic offered for a value price.

This Beetle has been under the same ownership since 1989, and you can tell the difference that comes from long-term care. The sheet metal remain crisp, doors close with authority, bumpers/trim shine brilliantly, and everything is complete. The red paint is a part of a professional respray later in life, and today, it retains a nice gloss in the light - exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly convertible. Plus, the clean white convertible top gives this full color combo the same appeal as a Coca-Cola bottle.

The black interior continues the well-respected style. The high-back bucket seats, clean door panels, and good carpeting with upgraded color-matched floor mats make this a nice place to spend some time. And the classic dash reminds you this is the rare year for the Super Beetle but with the flat/vintage windshield setup. There are even nice extras, like the AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette stereo and a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel.

In the rear is the classic Volkswagen powerplant. This 1600cc motor was the largest displacement from the series, and this era-correct block looks quite correct in the engine bay. The motor is famous for being hardy, and good belt, hoses, and wires reaffirm the feeling of proper care. Having a rear-wheel drive vehicle with the engine over the back makes for the right weight distribution and better power delivery. It doesn't make the Beetle a sports car, but it does give it that feeling of a clever package out on the road. And the control of a four-speed manual transmission means you and the machine feel like a team getting the most out of the motor.

This VW represents a sold car with a cared-for history. It makes for an ideal convertible for an ideal price. Don't miss this deal, call today!!!
