1973 Super Beetle For Sale!
Okay, okay - this picture was taken in April 1989, when I bought the
car and restored it. The paint job isn't so nice anymore, and there's
some rust. And that adorable little boy has grown into a hulking
fifteen year old. But you get an idea of what the car looks like.
The carburetor needs replacing - about $150 - in order to pass
emissions tests. Plus there's a front end shimmy that needs to be taken
car of. Also, it could use some work on the brakes. Oh, and the
speedometer needs to be replaced and sometimes the starter won't
start in very cold weather. But that's really about it - we're talking
real basic transportation, here. Folks, it runs.
The tires are in good shape, the engine runs well (strong for a Beetle),
and the heater actually works! Plus, I put in a new muffler earlier this
A good deal for someone who needs a cheap car and is willing to do a
little work. Plus, this is a Beetle, the real thing, not that new
overpriced "Less Flower/More Power" imposter. This car does get
stares and attention. (If you're male: chicks love 'em. If you're female:
guys know how easy they are to work on.)
