Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1974

1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle Karmann Sun Bug Cabriolet Convertible
This vehicle has been fully restored and maintained. Everything is in excellent working condition! Paint is clean and shiny and interior is clean. There are no dents or dings on the body, no rust, no tears or holes in interior seats, etc. Engine runs strong and starts on the first or second try, even after sitting for several weeks. Many older parts have been replaced and the inside of the engine compartment is VERY clean and to stock (have pictures if necessary). Convertible top is original with the white interior and dark brown exterior, with the dark brown canvas cover. There is minor wear in the original top at the linkage joints. This is a 40-year old bug so there are minor leaks that is inherent with owning a bug. Vehicle is in excellent condition and great operational order. Has the spare tire and jack in the trunk. No additional modifications inside or out from the original stock condition.
This bug is a frame off restoration to near original factory condition and everything is in excellent working condition! New clutch, heater boxes, muffler, oil cooler, valve covers, engine mounts, hoses and gaskets, etc. have been replaced. This is a vehicle with regular maintenance, low miles, and only driven on weekends and non-rainy weather. Vehicle is kept in a climate-controlled garage. Includes any spare parts available, original owner documentation and sales pamphlets. Any materials that I have removed will be provided with the sale of the vehicle. This vehicle is a Super Beetle with a 1600cc (60 Horsepower) air-cooled engine and manual transmission. There is no additional custom interior or exterior work outside stock - all original configuration. This vehicle has been entered into numerous Bug Out car events and wins either first or second place in Bug Convertible Stock every time. This is a non-smoker, second owner vehicle.
Sun Bug History: The 1974 Karmann Super Beetle Cabriolet was manufactured at the Wilhelm Karmann plant in Osnabruck. Sun Bugs were finished in metallic gold paintwork and interiors that included rosewood dash panels (on the Super Beetle versions), simulated leather padded four spoke sports steering wheel, adjustable sports seats with special Mocha Brown needlecord and leatherette, matching door and side panels and loop pile carpets. They were also fitted with the familiar SEB finishing touch of Lemmerz “GT” sports wheels which in all cases were 4½J x 15. Some wheels were finished in gold color to match the vehicle bodywork paint while others were in standard aluminum-silver finish. This bug includes the upgraded painted sport wheels.
