Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1975

1975 VW Super Beetle. Fully restored and absolutely beautiful. Subaru EJ25 2.5L motor with a Stinger EMS. Professionally dyno tuned by a shop that specializes in Subaru tuning. This 200+ bhp on a 1400 lbs car is fast. This beetle is a torque monster. 4th gear, 1500rpm, steep hill, Colorado elevation, it will pull you right up without a hiccup.

Water cooled with twin electric fans on the radiator. It has a few gallons of coolant and will never over heat.

The burgundy interior is flawless. Currently has seat covers.

Bluetooth phone and music


American Racing Wheels


The conversion took a great deal of time. Absolutely no shortcut was taken.

Shorty oil pan

New axles

Disc brakes on the front

Brand new tranny mounts

Custom exhaust

Entire coolant system is custom. No leaks anywhere.

The EJ25 is notorious for head gasket leaks. Prior to installing the engine. Head gaskets were replaced even though they weren't leaking. All cylinder compression is over 150lb. No oil leaks. No seepage or sweating from anywhere on the engine.

The super beetle has a strong main shaft in the tranny which can handle the power just fine.

New 2 stage clutch.

This bug is a complete sleeper. The boxer engine has a similar sound to the air cooled version, just quieter.

You will not find a nicer classic beetle. The engine swap is simply immaculate.

The reliability is that of a Subaru. Love them or hate them, their engines are solid.

This may be one of the most beautiful classic beetles you can find.
