As some of you know, I have been wanting to get my first beetle. I looked at a '67 yesterday but it had way too much rust. I found a great deal on a '73 super that has almost no rust at all! No exaggeration, The only rust I could find is the running boards, and new ones are $30 a piece so no biggie. I couldn't believe how solid the whole car is for what he wanted for it. The interior is pretty nice and the paint is really slick but has a few cracks. It runs great and shifts good, I think the clutch needs a little adjusting but not bad as is. He has papers that show the previous owner spent $1500 at the local VW shop in miscellaneous parts and repair. Not damage just minor stuff. Hes says the guy spent $3000 there on it but only had papers for that. There's not even hardly any surface rust on anything. It has a pretty nice speaker setup in it and an okay radio. He said he has about $4000 in the car total and I believe it. Yeah sure, it's a 40 year old car and still needs some work, but it's pretty dang good as is. Here are some pictures. These are from the ad, Ill take more later. Oh and I paid $2400 for it. Even though it's a super, I still think it's a great deal. The kid just needed to sell it fast.

All joking aside looks like a real nice score especially for that price if little/ no rust.

Lol....Yeah I think it was a great deal. Of course, rust can hide really well, but I couldn't find anything besides minor surface rust in some places. Most places had none. He said it got a lot of complements about how solid it was at the vw shop.

Not sure, aftermarket. It looks alright but I'm going to at least repaint it.

How much gas do you normally have to give it to start off in first on level ground? Just above idle, a good bit? Probably just use to my '71 f100 that has alot more torque, it just seemed like I have to rev it a good bit to get going.
