SMOOTH RUNNING 1600CC MOTOR, 4-SPEED MANUAL TRANS, LONG TIME OWNERSHIP, FUN!!!

This 1972 Volkswagen Beetle has a barn find kind of story that lends itself to some cool history. That also means you'll get some original details not found on many other cars that are about to cross the half-century mark. But what you'll really like is that part of its resurrection story includes investments in the fundamentals to keep it a strong-running classic today.

The story we're told on this one is that it was stored away for 30 years before the owner passed away and it was resurrected for the road. That kind of lost generation story is backed up in the details, like the classic dealer tag on the rear hatch. And it has a straight look to the body and trim that tells you it has not been spending nearly 50 years battening traffic. However, they didn't just pull it out of storage and put it on the road. There was time and money invested to make sure this is a solid driver. You can see it on the exterior with newer tires and good window rubbers. You may decide to take the work further with a professional detail of the blue paint or other investment, but we already like how this classic has been properly revived so that it can tell its story out on the road.

SMOOTH RUNNING 1600CC MOTOR, 4-SPEED MANUAL TRANS, LONG TIME OWNERSHIP, FUN!!!

This 1972 Volkswagen Beetle has a barn find kind of story that lends itself to some cool history. That also means you'll get some original details not found on many other cars that are about to cross the half-century mark. But what you'll really like is that part of its resurrection story includes investments in the fundamentals to keep it a strong-running classic today.

The story we're told on this one is that it was stored away for 30 years before the owner passed away and it was resurrected for the road. That kind of lost generation story is backed up in the details, like the classic dealer tag on the rear hatch. And it has a straight look to the body and trim that tells you it has not been spending nearly 50 years battening traffic. However, they didn't just pull it out of storage and put it on the road. There was time and money invested to make sure this is a solid driver. You can see it on the exterior with newer tires and good window rubbers. You may decide to take the work further with a professional detail of the blue paint or other investment, but we already like how this classic has been properly revived so that it can tell its story out on the road.

The sea of blue continues inside with the distinctly dark blue upholstery on the seats and door panels. It's highly original, and so that excites many Beetle fans. Just like the exterior, you may decide to update a few items, but the unique appeal of this one really has the kind of authentic style we don't see too often anymore. Even the classic Volkswagen AM radio is still cranking out tunes. And when you look under the front hood, this one has the kind of details that usually were lost decades ago. The spare tire looks original, the trunk floor still has its factory cardboard lining, and even the desirable tool kit is still in place!

Part of resurrecting a car correctly means getting the engine right. So the 1600cc powerhouse was given significant top-end work, including new rod bearings, rebuilt heads, rebuilt original carb, and a tune-up. So this flat-four fires up with an eagerness like it's trying to make up for all its decades it was locked away. Even the right supporting pieces were redone, like a new fuel tank, new battery, and new brakes. If this is starting to sound like a great driver's Bug, then you'll also be pleased to know that this has a Freeway Flyer four-speed transmission. As the name suggests, it's geared to better handle modern highways and freeways.

This is the solid driver's car that also has some rare and desirable features still in place. So if you want a great classic with a story to tell, call today!
