Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1970

Take some time to look over one of the coolest bugs around. This 1970 Volkswagen Beetle has interesting features like a sunroof and AutoStick transmission wrapped around a distinctive color combo. But even a standout like this is still everyday affordable.We all love the Beetle because these are classic cars with a sturdy German-engineered base. It provides for a strong foundation to build an individual spirit. This one seems to go for a premium stock appearance in a nicely rendered shade of Pastel White. In fact, the cream-colored paint has been laid by a professional hand to give it the quality of a crisp button-down shirt. But even the finest dressed people have room for jewelry with the mirror-like chrome bumpers, full-length trim, bright dual exhaust tips. And the details are great, too, like the factory stock wheel covers that have the VW logo colored in with the matching off-white.Inside, the high-back bucket seats that came on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day cruising. The bold red cloth on these nicely coordinates with the door panels to really stand out every time someone peeks inside. And when they do, they'll also spot plenty of cool factory features. You have the original-style dual spoke steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest, correct VDO gauge, and even a period-correct AM radio. Plus, this Beetle might look like it's a stick shift, but if you count the pedals, you don't have to be intimidated. VW's optional AutoStick does all the clutch work, and so all you do is row the gears with zero worries about stalling. And because this is such a great cruiser, you even get a great hand-cranked sunroof to let the sunshine in for those Sunday drives.Under the rear hatch is what's believed to be this Beetle's original powerplant. It has been treated to the right maintenance over the years, which means you will be hearing that iconic ticking from VW's 1600cc flat-four for many years to come. Volkswagens sometimes were off-putting to people who didn't know how to drive manual shifts. So their solution was adapting the Autostick transmission that has a vacuum-operated clutch. There's no third pedal, but you still get the control of rowing through the three forward gears to get the most out of the VW's hardy motor. And since the 1600cc was the largest VW displacement from the series, it feels a bit nippy in the lightweight coupe. The experience behind the wheel is all smiles, and you'll get plenty of nostalgic looks as you cruise around in this sunroof bug. Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this is a great looking VW with the features that will always attract attention. So when you want an easy, affordable, and standout classic, this Beetle is the one. Call today!
