The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most popular cars in the world. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche under the direction of a notorious historical figure, it was aimed at bringing mass-market, affordable motoring to the German public. In fact, it achieved this goal in many other countries as well. Beetle production started in 1938 and concluded in 2003. Over 21 million of these cute, lovable bugs were produced, a number that exceeds the population of some countries. Given that the majority of Beetles survive to this day thanks to their simplicity, buying this 1973 Volkswagen Beetle is a decision that doesn't need too much pondering. The current owner will include various extra parts with the sale as well.
Dressed in a brown paint job, this 1973 Volkswagen Beetle showcases Ferdinand Porsche's iconic design, which changed little from 1938 to 2003. Although you may not notice at first glance, Volkswagen improved and optimized the Beetle for every single model year. This particular car boasts its original wheels, hubcaps, and headlight covers. The tires that it wears are said to be new, easing your woes of driving on aged rubber. We also spot an aftermarket duo of twin exhaust tips, giving this Beetle a quad-exhaust outlook on life, as well as allowing the friendly purr of its engine to spread more love far and wide.
