This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle is the right mix of classic style, the right well-placed upgrades, and the overall appeal of an affordable way to be a part of the classic car scene.

We like classic cars with a story, and this one starts with knowing that it had only two owners in the last four decades. That's how you get a car that comes with the little extras, like a car cover. And while you're likely to find areas for improvement (because personalization is part of the fun of Beetle ownership,) the overall appeal is that everything that you see already has some history. So making improvements also feels like adding your own chapter to this VW's legacy. From day one this car has a cheery style with the light blue paint, bright bumpers, and a matching shine on the wheels. And while you may not take this one on a cross-country journey, the classic roof rack will make people think you have.

The interior is well-fitted with good door panels, a clean dash, and nicely detailed floor mats with blue piping to match the exterior. These later Beetles have some of the most comfortable bucket seats around. Plus, this one has been upgraded with pieces like cup holders and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette. So it's more than just the roof rack that will have you thinking about real trips in this classic VW.

Volkswagen's flat-four motor is the secret to the car's success. It has the hypnotic air-cooled hum that makes motoring fun. They built this 1600cc unit to be stout, and that's why it still runs strong today. This isn't a muscle car, but smart engineering with the motor over the driving wheels makes this feel more substantial. 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. It's this full driving experience that adds to the personality and why the Beetle has such a loyal following.

This is a classic with a history and personality, and all for a great price. Call today!!!
