This 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle is everything you love about the legend. That means an iconic style, a hardy motor, and fun features - like the sunroof. And of course, it also keeps the sensible price.

This is a great year to own a Beetle. 1971 was when production peaked and it was the introduction of the Super Beetle. So this one has that little extra bit of significance. But more than just history. The shape is an icon of the road, and this one has the clean look that reminds many people of their first car. And there's a nice hint of brightwork with the bumpers, dual exhaust tips, and classic wheel covers. It has a clean and complete driver-quality finish that's just right for those who like to hop in and go for a drive without a worry... after all, VW upgraded to a Super Beetle for a better driver's classic.

The interior appears to have been given a more recent restoration investment. That means comfy high-back front bucket seats, good door panels, and like-new carpeting. There are even good details, like the black dash, working vent windows, and grippy floor shifter. The classic steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest still gives an excellent view of the simple/elegant VDO gauge. It all makes for an inviting way to go for a drive. And the optional sunroof just makes for a more fun cruiser.

Volkswagen's flat-four motor is a world-renowned hardy powerplant. The 1600cc unit here has a tidy setup thanks to proper care with good belts and hoses. It also has maintenance items like a new Bosch ignition system. It fires up nicely with that unmistakable air-cooled hum, and the four-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly to give you the ideal classic Bug experience. And don't forget the Super Beetle means an updated front suspension to make this nimble classic feel even better on the road.

The Beetle was often sold on the power of love, and that's all this one needs to keep it feeling like a great classic. These are easy to own and easy to enjoy cars. So if you like to drive your classic, call today!!!
