West Coast Classics is proud to present an absolutely exceptional and beautiful example of this 1972 Volkswagen Beetle!
The decision to produce the Super Beetle in 1971 was going to prove a costly one. Never before had Volkswagen spent so much time or money on the Beetle. The new suspension design required a new chassis and every panel in the front end had to be redesigned as well. This meant new round fenders, a larger wider hood, redesigned front valance, a new spare tire well, other changes to areas of the body and new inner fenders to accommodate the mounting of the new struts. The newly designed Beetle was to be sold in North America with a larger carbureted 1600cc engine featuring dual port cylinder heads for better performance, with an external oil cooler. Crescent-shaped air vents were designed to allow more fresh air into the interior. The rear deck lid was increased in size to accommodate the new larger engine and had two banks of five louvers cut into it to help keep the new power plant cool. Released in August 1970 for the 1971 model year, the new sales brochure stated the Beetle to be 'The most powerful, most exciting , most comfortable Beetle ever!'
Absolutely no rust and obviously always well maintained and looked after! This car must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears, including reverse, the car brakes and steers great and the engine temperature always remains cool.
