The classic bug is a rolling icon that loves to mix easy ownership with classic car fun. This 1972 Volkswagen Beetle is a perfect example of that total feeling.
The classic white Beetle just seems to get your mind going. After all, it seems to really drive home the clean VW design that was simple, elegant, and absolutely distinct. And on the other side of the spectrum, we bet there are a few of you thinking about adding some racing stripes for your own Herbie replica. That's part of the fun that's at the heart of Beetle ownership. Everyone has an individual attraction, but we are all united under a seemingly timeless design. So this has a nice stock style where you may choose to brighten up the paint for a weekend project, or this may be the base for your Volksrod project - it's all possible with a well-built car that has a huge community behind it.
The blue interior is a distinctive touch, but at its heart remains the look of classic simplicity and sturdiness. This is the later era for high-back bucket seats, and so you get the vintage button-top presentation mixed with a style built for all-day comfort. There are some handy upgrades, like the cup holder center console. But overall this remains a faithful classic, right down to the Wolfsburg crest on the steering wheel.
In the rear is the era-correct 1600cc motor. This was the largest of the series, and so it's always desirable to have. Part of the extensive VW community includes a long list of easy to install components that increase the power of this hardy motor. But right now, this is a strong-running flat-four that seems to love to show off a very stock style that reminds us of the engineering behind these VWs. The air-cooled motor has a hypnotic tune, and more importantly, no radiator to boil over. The powerhouse is placed over the driving wheels for better traction and there is no driveshaft running the length of the car for a power loss. So these are simple to fix and upgrade, but they also are a marvel of a smart design. And everything from the control of the four-speed manual transmission to the grip of more modern tires gives you the full confidence to enjoy this Bug to the fullest.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the affordable and fun classic that's looking for a new garage to call its home. Call today!!!
