DESCRIPTION

A car like this 1974 VW makes for an ideal classic. After all, you get the improvements of a Super Beetle that makes it a better driver. At the same time, it never loses that unique looks that make the first Volkswagen an enduring icon. So that kind of timeless appeal only gets better at a value price.



The Beetle is all about classic lines, sturdy components, and an overall look of fun. And the way the panels align and the doors close with ease remind you of the reputation of German build quality. The bumpers, wheel covers, and full-length trim all have a nice look that's distinctive against the red paint. And the full package has the look of a classic that's ready to take you everywhere.



We don't see too many tan interiors, and so this one looks distinct. Plus, you can tell there have been investments in fundamentals including the seats and door panels over the years. There are even nice extras, like the soft cover over the dash (the smooth plastic underneath is just part of the feeling of care this VW displays.) This gets all the best classic elements right, including the Wolfsburg crest steering wheel, single VDO gauges, and confident-feeling shifter. And we especially like the added comfort of the high-back bucket seats that came on these later VWs.



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 the way this one fires up and runs reaffirms 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. Plus, as a Super Beetle, you get an improved suspension setup, and this also has been upgraded to front disc brakes. So it really is a driver's classic.



The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, maintenance records, and service manuals. It's the affordable classic for those who really want a great driver. Call now!
