We won't mind if you want to take a second to rub your eyes to make sure you're not seeing things. This 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle is quite possibly the cleanest classic Beetle in the world and with 445-miles on the odometer since it was fully rebuilt, it's more than worth the $21,900 price tag.

This '73 Beetle recently underwent a complete restoration from the ground up that likely cost more than twice the asking price. Admittedly the body isn't perfect for an event like the Concours d'Elegance, but it is super straight and the brilliant blue paint finish is stellar. Much of the chrome and stainless steel components were replaced during the restoration process giving it a perfect, showroom shine.

Powering the Beetle is the vehicle's original 1600-cc air-cooled, flat-four cylinder powerplant. When it was first introduced in 1971, it made just 50-hp and has been completely rebuilt. The engine bay has also been restored to showroom new, if not better. The engine is mated to a four-speed manual transmission.

Inside the Beetle there's a bit of modern-age technology including a $2,000 sound system and a custom blue-LED lit interior. The driver and passenger seats have been swapped out with Procar by Scat buckets while the rear features a custom covered bench. The rest of the interior has been refinished with today's finest upholstery and is truly like no other.

Nice looking Super Beetle. Undercarriage is crazy clean and shows off the now bits.

20k just a bit to spend on a part-time weekend car.

Looks well done though.

No offense, but I've owned and restored a number of Super Beetles, and there's just no way that car is worth $21,900. About the only way it'd be worth that is if it were a completely original 79 convertible with like 5 miles on it that has never been dealer prepped. If you wanted a car to make that kid of money on, it's got to be a pre 67 Beetle. It's a nice car either way, I just hope you plan on keeping it.

WOW, that is the nicest looking older style beetle I have ever seen. If I had the money I would buy it in a heartbeat.
But since I am barely keeping my jalopy running I just am able to drool over it.

Nice Beetle.! :bigthumb:

Good Luck with the Sale.

PS: How many horsepower does it have now? ;)
