Most of us would be proud of a personal relationship that lasted 43 years. So it's not a surprise that when an owner keeps a car that long, it also shows a nice level of pride. It's all about what makes this 1973 Volkswagen Beetle such a pleasant classic.
If you keep a car for over four decades, it's certainly going to capture your heart... and that means treating it with respect. You see it in the way the gentle curves of this Beetle's panels still fit together with German precision. The paint has the right look for 1973's Marina Blue, and the consignor says this was resprayed about 10 years ago. So it has a driver-ready style while still also having quite a nice gloss. The overall style feels radiant thanks to bright chrome bumpers, complete trim, shining hubcaps, and even eyelid-style headlight overhangs. And when you look at the full package, even details like the clean glass and newer weather-stripping remind you why we all seek out a car under long-term care.
The interior continues the well-respected attitude. There's a clean style to the door panels, dash, carpeting, and headliner feel clean and inviting. We especially like the texture of the classic vinyl upholstery and the comfort of the high-back front bucket seats. This gives you the right classic driving pieces, like the single VDO gauge pod and grippy Wolfsburg steering wheel. But this Beetle was not just hidden away for 43 years under his owner. The idea was to have a proper driver, and so there are worthwhile upgrades like a cup holder center console and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input.
Another good reason to keep a car like this for the long term is that it comes from the era of one of the best motors. The flat-four had enlarged to 1600cc and evolved into the dual-port setup. It fires up nicely with that unmistakable air-cooled hum, and the four-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly to give you the ideal classic Bug experience. And as you look underneath, the clean undercarriage is a nice reminder of the added care in this VW, and it also means you feel more confident when driving near or far.
Complete with the owner's manual, we all love a well-loved classic. So when you can get a respected Beetle offered at a value price, you know the deal is irresistible. Call today!!!
