Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1971

For millions of people, he Volkswagen Beetle was their first automobile. Today, he Beetle is an equally great starter hobby car, ith examples like this 1971 model still available for a very affordable price. It gives you a great old car feel, nparalleled parts and knowledge support, nd an undeniable appeal that puts a smile on everyone's face.Simple is good when you're a Beetle fan, nd while this lovely Bug shows just the right amount of patina, t also carries a handsome color combination that's just a bit out of the ordinary. Well, ight blue isn't all that unusual, ut the matching blue cloth interior is seldom-seen. But before we go there, et's take a closer look at the bodywork, hich remains quite good. Fit and finish on the lowly Beetle were actually above average, nd while rumors of them floating because they sealed up so well were probably slightly exaggerated, here's no denying that this one fits together very well. The early Beetle styling cues such as the small taillights, hrome-rimmed headlights, nd simple chrome bumpers are all present and accounted for, nd still in great shape. You can tell it's an original Beetle and not a Super Beetle by the flat windshield, nd the big chrome bumpers dress it up nicely. If you like the traditional Beetle look, ou're going to love this car.As I mentioned, he interior makes this Bug something special, ith blue cloth in place of the usual black. The interior is likely original, o it's showing some wear, ut nothing critical beyond a small split on the bottom of the driver's seat back and some wear on the lower cushion, ll of which I think I'd leave alone. Instrumentation is simple, ith a round speedometer with an integrated gas gauge tucked above the odometer. Simple gray carpets with rubber floor mats make it durable, he headliner fits quite well, iving the car a well-tailored look. The trunk area is also correctly finished with proper cardboard liners, full-sized spare tire that might even be original, nd absolutely zero signs of accident damage. If you're looking for a clean Bug, his is it.Mechanically, he Bug is familiar to anyone who has even a passing interest in cars. The air-cooled flat-four starts with the characteristic exhaust note, nd under the deck lid shows a lot of originality and recent maintenance. All the heating tubes are in place, hich you don't often find on older Beetles, nd it looks quite original. Beetles are famous for their bulletproof reliability, nd this one is no exception, s it starts every time and drives extremely well. Performance is modest, ven with the 4-speed manual transmission, ut that's the whole point of an old car: to be transported to a different era. This one still carries its original floor pan, hich is solid, nd all the original suspension and brake components have been serviced properly over the years. Recently restored steel wheels with bright hubcaps carry skinny blackwall radials with a lot of life left in them.A very clean early Beetle with lots of personality and a great color combination.
