This 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is part of that big tradition of fun top-down cars made to hit the road. There's even been a recent full servicing making sure this one runs strong to give you that unmistakable air-cooled tune that makes the VW a legend.

We always love the Beetle because it looks like nothing else out there on the road. It makes you part of a special camaraderie every time you spot another classic Bug out on the road. It's a culture that thrives on individual style, and the value price leaves room in your budget to really personalize this one. Nerf bar bumpers? Electric-level paint? Full Volksrod conversion? It all lets your imagination wonder. The first step is even in place with a brand new convertible top that comes with the sale.

The black roof looks good against red paint, and so you'll be happy that there's also an all-black interior underneath. This Super Beetle was the final evolution of the VW's interior. It gave you a dash with a logical layout and vent upgrades, but it never lost the classic spirit of the single large VDO gauge. This was even the first year for the larger wraparound windshield. The great thing about the Beetle is that they are small in size, but are done to be surprisingly accommodating. These later models also had exceptionally comfortable high-back bucket seats. Plus, this one already has some nice driver-oriented upgrades, like the wood-rimmed Grant sports steering wheel and EMPI shifter.

The heart of this car's appeal is in its engine. The 1600cc motor was the largest offered in the series. Plus, this one was just given a full professional service. It included investments everywhere from the wires to the carburetor. So you have a hardy motor that really knows how to remain a strong runner. The rear engine layout is great for engineering, and the four-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over it all. This one really is built for driving. The Super Beetle gave you an upgraded front suspension and improved braking. Plus, the upgraded EMPI GT-style wheels also lets you mount better modern tires.

This is the strong-running open-top VW that gets your mind thinking about all the different ways it can be fun to make it an extension of you. Call now!
