1972 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Super Beetle Additional Info:

We are the 2nd owners of this beautiful Montana Bug. Very Rust-free and complete. I have restored well over a hundred VW Beetles to various extents over the past 15 years and have to say this car was one of cleanest ever. We did a golden restoration using all original and replacement german parts whenever possible with exception to some 21st Century upgrades. Title is clear and in our name. We even have the Volkswagen of Germany issued "Birth Certificate" of this vehicle stating Vin, Engine Case #, Factory color, sale point, etc... Very Cool!

Drivetrain -

Complete Rebuild of 1600 Dualport with upgrade of 87mm pistons and cylinders, Cam and Cam Lifters/Followers, pushrods and pushrod tubes, all new heater boxes and exhaust, all new intake including heads, German OE engine bearings(case never cut- less than 70k original miles), Oil cooler, Oil pump, Alternator, Coil, Single Advance Distributor with electric ignition(No more points!), Transmission nosecone, IRS side covers and driveshaft resealed, new front and rear mounts, return spring, Clutch Plate and disc, New Engine compartment tarboards,

Interior -

Too much to list!

The story(briefly) -

3 years ago I bought this Bug to restore for my wife. She already owns a restored Blue 69 VW Beetle but, being born in 1972 and entertaining the idea of the slightly bigger, stronger Super Beetle, always interested her. As the Bug got closer and closer to completion she began having strong sentimental feeling for "Herbie"(the 69). 12 years as the 3rd owner of this California Bug, 6 years past all the blood, sweat and tears of a slow costly restoration/upgrade (Freeway Flyer Transmission, Front Disc Brake Conversion, CD sound system, etc.), Herbie means a great deal to her. After restoring and breaking in the 72 she has been torn and decided to let the newer bug go!

Happy motoring,
