The Volkswagen Beetle is a true automotive legend, with over 20 million examples made. The all-too-familiar sound of an air-cooled powertrain chugging along is no surprise. With so many examples made, finding a custom build that stands out is rare. However, the 1972 Volkswagen Beetle Street Rod we have today is a sight for sore eyes among the factory spec, and complete custom builds that lose entirely the essence of what makes the classic Volkswagen Beetle special.
While it might be a street rod, this 1972 Volkswagen Beetle Street Rod retains its factory features. The bright yellow exterior stands out, regardless if you are on track or cruising. While the original design is kept, slight design upgrades like the removed front bumper, Stinger tailpipe, LED lights at the front, and custom rear lights blend in well. The factory hubcaps have been swapped out for a set of deep dish center line wheels with skinny tires at the front and wide wheels at the rear. The "racing" theme continues to the interior of this 1972 Volkswagen Beetle Street Rod. the interior sees a significant weight loss journey with the back seats removed, a new helms tooth racing seat with 3-point red racing seat belts, and a roll cage in place for added safety. The metal dashboard in place is home to aftermarket gauges to measure performance and a reported new audio system with Bluetooth capability. The current owner reports a new interior which includes carpets, a rearview mirror, and sun visors.
Make your way to the rear of this 1972 Volkswagen Beetle Street Rod, pop the engine compartment, and you will find a Volkswagen 1600cc motor chugging along; no cutting and chopping on this classic German machine! A first glance, the upgraded air filter and ignition system come to view, and there's some minor freshening up which comes in the form of new spark plugs and a recent rune up. The current owner reports that the engine present is new and has less than 14,000 miles run. A four-speed manual transmission sends power to the car's rear wheels.
