Modified 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle   Price: $17500
This 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle was acquired by the seller from his sister in South Carolina and subsequently given a body-off overhaul from 2015-2018. The body was refinished in blue with exterior trim powder-coated to match, while the interior features a custom steel dash, a single-piece headliner, and reupholstered seats. Power is from an air-cooled 1,776cc flat-four with ported and polished cylinder heads, an Eagle 110 cam, a deep sump, a Dell’Orto carburetor, a PerTronix 009 distributor, and SuperFlow headers. Additional modifications include a Freeway Flyer four-speed manual transaxle with a Vintage Speed shifter, Top Line suspension, Fuchs 15″x6″ wheels, removal of intakes and vents from the body, a fuel tank liner and custom filler, and more. This modified Super Beetle is offered with the April 2019 issue of Hot VWs magazine in which it was featured, refurbishment records and photos. The body was separated from the chassis, stripped, and resprayed in its current single-stage Axalta Nason blue with matching powder-coated metal trim. Additional modifications included removal of the front fresh air intake and rear side vents. Porsche-sourced 15″x6″ Fuchs wheels feature black insets and Porsche center caps, and are shod with Cooper tires measuring 195/60 up front and 195/65 at the rear. A matching spare is located under the hood. Replacement suspension parts from Top Line were powder-coated before installation. The cabin features front bucket and rear bench seats upholstered in pattered black vinyl with white piping as well as West Coast Metric door panels with armrests and map pockets. A West Coast Metric carpet kit covers the floors, while a single-piece headliner is mounted over sound deadening material. A wood-rimmed Flat4 GT steering wheel frames instrumentation housed in a custom-fabricated steel dash that is painted to match the exterior and also houses a period AM/FM radio. The five-digit odometer reads approximately 10k miles, with actual chassis mileage unknown. The air-cooled 1,776cc flat-four is said to feature an Engle 110 camshaft, a deep sump, and cylinder heads that were ported, polished, and flow-tested by HeadsUp Performance of Sandy, Utah. A BMD serpentine belt pulley system has been added along with a PerTronix 009 distributor and a single-mount Dell’Orto carburetor. The Vintage Speed Super Flow exhaust system consists of headers and a muffler featuring two chrome tailpipes exiting below the rear bumper. A Freeway Flyer four-speed manual gearbox with a Vintage Speed shifter transfers power to the rear wheels. Additional modifications include a fuel filler neck from a 1965 model braised to a replacement Super Beetle tank that is fitted with a liner and finished in Gravitex underbody paint. The chassis was sandblasted and refinished while separated from the body. Dual "D" carb kit and SB Steering box installed in 2021. The car was featured in a four-page spread in the April 2019 issue of Hot VWs magazine, a copy of which is included in the sale.
