GREAT LOOKING BEETLE W/ ONLY 2324 MILES ON THE RESTO, RUNS/DRIVES VERY SMOOTH!!!
By now you've noticed the trend in Volkswagen Beetles, and they're not getting cheaper. This 1975 VW Super Beetle convertible is a great example of still-affordable fun, though, with a cheerful color combination, a solid structure, and all the charm that came standard with every single one they ever built.
This jaunty little Beetle convertible should look instantly familiar to just about anyone, and painting it light yellow (called "Ivory" in the brochures) gives it an eternal summertime look that suits it just fine. It sure looks like this tidy ragtop has lived a good life and with extensive service by the pros at the Bug Stop, it remains one of the better specimens we've featured. That means paint that shines up nicely without looking over-done, nice fit to the doors that's typical of these sturdy little cars, and shiny chrome bumpers that look great against the pretty yellow paint. There's quite a bit of trim on the '75 models and it all looks quite good, from the chrome bumpers to the bright headlight rings to the VOLKSWAGEN emblem on the engine cover. Both the taillight lenses are in good shape, as are the fender-mounted parking lamps, so obviously it's been indoors and not cooked in the sun, and the rubber components throughout are in good order.
All Beetles had vinyl upholstery when they were new, but in a convertible, the usual black upholstery can get sticky and hot. Instead, this car carries handsome tan upholstery that looks comfortable and inviting, and with matching door panels, it has a very finished, high-quality look. The dash is in good condition and the single pod ahead of the driver carries the big round speedometer with integral fuel gauge that's the extent of Beetle instrumentation. The entertainment system has been upgraded to an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit and a leather rim on the steering wheel makes it easy to grab. Overhead, there's a very clean tan convertible top that fits as well as any we've ever seen on a Beetle, and includes a correct glass rear window and interior headliner that makes the VW feel a lot plusher than you'd expect. The front trunk compartment is also nicely finished with correct black cardboard and side panels, suggesting that this car was owned by someone who loved it, not merely someone trying to make a buck.
The traditional 1600cc VW flat-four engine is about as simple and reliable as machines get, and thanks to a freshly rebuilt carburetor and recent tune-up, it runs as well as you'd expect. It isn't detailed for show, but it does have a well-maintained look that doesn't show leaks or other issues and it hasn't been modified like so many of its siblings. It starts easily, idles well, and pulls the cute little Bug around with enough enthusiasm to make it fun to drive. Underneath, there are clean floor pans (possibly replacements, which really isn't a big deal for VW lovers), some new suspension bushings, and a 4-speed manual transmission with that somewhat vague shift action that will be all-too-familiar to Bug fanatics. Color-matched wheels add a sporty look and carry slightly oversized 165R15 radials that fill the fenders quite nicely.
Just a well-loved and well-maintained Bug ragtop that's ready to enjoy. You could get one for less, but why bother fixing one up when you can have one this nice as a turn-key package? Call today!
