Perhaps one of the most endeared car ever produced was the VW Beetle. Volkswagen literally rose from the ashes of WWII with the Volkswagen Type 1 or Beetle. The Beetle was different, simple, reliable and fun. These core elements would prove to be important as the VW beetle would eventually become to be the most mass produced car of all time; surpassing the Model T in 1972 with car number 15,007, 034 and by 1973 production of the beetle surpassed 16 million units. More amazing than the production numbers, is that the Beetle never became boring. Through Volkswagen's commitment to quality, the Beetle kept evolving and improving over time. The introduction of the Super Beetle in the early 70's demonstrated that fact as VW deviated from their tried and true torsion bar front suspension replacing it with a coil over strut suspension improving usable space under the bonnet, creating a longer wheelbase and improving overall suspension and handling.
The 1973 Volkswagen Beetle presented here is quite outstanding as it has been the recipient of a high quality, highly detailed restoration to its original color combination of Marina Blue over Parchment interior. The car was professionally disassembled, stripped, painted and reassembled using original and NOS parts. Mechanically the car is excellent offering smooth acceleration, excellent steering and handling, smooth shifting and straight and true stopping. Huge attention to detail was exercised during the restoration and the final sorting of the vehicle as the owner enthusiast owner had high demands for the finished product. Since, the car has been routinely serviced and carefully looked after yielding one of the best Super Beetles in existence. The car comes with owners-manual, recent owner history and service receipts. The car speaks for itself and is “As New”, this is a great opportunity to acquire an outstanding Beetle. Call or email for details today.
