Description:

The VW Beetle is as popular today as it ever was, and judging from the work that went into this 1972 Beetle, folks still love the Bug. Showing off a bright yellow paint job and a beautifully upholstered interior, it''s not quite factory-correct, but if you want a VW that drives right and looks great, this is an excellent choice. Bright colors seem to suit the charming little Beetle best, and the vivid yellow paint used here shows off the car''s famous curves quite well. It''s far from subtle, but at the same time, it seems quite appropriate for a car that has become an icon recognized around the world. The paint is fresh enough that you can almost smell it, and thanks to the wonders of modern paint technology, it positively glows. It looks right for 1972, with the right shine and no heavy metallic in the finish to make it look too modern. Practically everything you could need for a VW restoration is available brand new, so it should be no surprise that the bodywork is in great shape with doors that close without major effort and good fit to the fenders. New weather-stripping throughout helps it seal up as well as it did when it was new and the bright chrome bumpers shine up easily and look great against the yellow paint. The tasteful tan interior is a pleasant change from the usual black and works particularly well in a yellow car. Just about everything you can touch is new, including the seats, door panels, and carpets, all of which look factory-correct. Even in the 1970s, the Beetle was delightfully old-school, and offers map pockets in the doors, floor-hinged pedals and a single group of instruments ahead of the driver. The gauges appear to be original and in very good condition, while the shifter has been upgraded to a short-throw unit with a T-handle that''s a massive improvement over the original. Neatly tucked into the dash, a modern AM/FM/CD stereo head unit looks like it was born there, and powers speakers throughout the interior, including a big subwoofer enclosure neatly hidden behind the back seat. In front, the trunk is upholstered in matching tan carpet and offers reasonable storage space. The 1600 cc flat-four is the heart and soul of the Beetle. Recently tuned, it runs superbly and offers an obvious host of familiar upgrades that improve performance without sacrificing its basic virtues. There''s an electric fuel pump to keep it fed, an upgraded carburetor, and an electronic ignition system, all of which ensure that it''ll fire up quickly and easily without harming its bulletproof reliability. The heater tubes are still in place, an important consideration anywhere outside of California, and there''s a recent exhaust system with chrome tips that only serves to amplify the familiar whistling exhaust note that''s unique to the Beetle. The floor pan appears to be new, which is not a big deal to VW owners, and there are numerous suspension upgrades, including coil-over shocks and a front disc brake conversion. The wheels resemble period Minilites, but they''re brand new and are shod with fat 205/60/15 radials that give the Bug a sturdy look. Nicely finished and ready to enjoy, this is the future of the VW hobby. No longer cheap beaters, Beetles are finally getting the respect they have always deserved. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
