This incredibly cool 1973 Super Beetle is the perfect car for a budget-minded collector or someone who is new to the hobby.

Sporting a vivid coat of brilliant blue paint, this fully sorted and completely road ready '73 Super Beetle is fresh out of a ground up restoration which likely cost twice as much as we're asking for it. The restorers began by stripping the car down to its bare floor pan and fully prepping and rebuilding the body. Once the body was aligned to better than factory standards, it was disassembled and evenly covered in two-stage basecoat/clearcoat paint. The end result is a very clean, well-aligned bug with a smooth finish and outstanding appearance that will provide years of worry-free fun.

Powering this sharp '73 Super Beetle is the cars original dual port 1600 cc air cooled, flat four cylinder, which upon its introduction in 1971 made a bristling 50 horsepower. Completely rebuilt during the cars restoration, it runs beautifully with that famous and distinctive VW sound, and will likely putter along forever with a minimum of fussing and tuning. At the top of the engine, a mirror-like air cleaner feeds air to a new Bocar one barrel carburetor. To the left of that carburetor, a Bosch coil supplies a traditional points distributor that's equipped with Bosch plug wires. And to the right of that carburetor, a chrome generator sits above a body-matched oil filler tube and chrome dipstick. At the back of the engine, a Claudes Buggies ignition system is affixed to the cars blue firewall, and in front of the engine, a new belt snakes around blue Scat pulleys and an aluminum Scat tensioner. Exhaust is handled by fresh VW branded headers; and, like the rest of the car, the entire engine bay has been restored to show quality standards.

Take one look underneath this VW and you'll see just how much work went into its complete, nut and bolt restoration. Both the front and rear suspensions have obviously been completely rebuilt and feature fresh bushings, fresh shocks and an aftermarket anti-sway bar. At the front of the car, new disc brakes are equipped with fresh hardware and new pads, and at the back of the car, rebuilt drum brakes are outfitted with fresh hoses. Power flows from the motor into a 4-speed manual transmission which turns four chrome EMPI eight spoke wheels that are wrapped in 175R15 Nanking front and 205/75R15 Republic Ensign rear radials. The bottom of this Beetle is spotless and looks spectacular with all-new stainless hardware holding together straight and solid floors which display a great looking coat of gloss black paint.

Pop open the door and you'll find a completely custom blue LED lit interior which features a $2K sound system and is the perfect spot to spend the afternoon cruising. The driver and front passenger enjoy firm Procar by Scat buckets, rear occupants ride on a custom covered bench and all passengers are secured with new, correct lap belts. At the front of the car, a new for 1973 padded dash shows no warping or fading and, with the exception of an MP3 compatible Alpine CD player, features the same minimalist readouts and accessories found in all Beetles. Below the seats, brand new black carpet lies under custom kick panels that have been outfitted with large Infinity Reference speakers and a chrome EMPI trigger shifter. At the sides of the seats, completely painted door jams and window frames contrast well to custom two-tone door panels which feature new armrests, billet window cranks and billet lock knobs. Above the seats a thick and tight custom headliner stretches from door to door and leads the eye to a reworked package tray which has been professionally upholstered and houses two more massive Infinity Reference speakers. In front of the driver, a familiar Grant GT steering wheel makes good use of the cars reduced turning radius, and in front of the cockpit, a spacious, by Beetle standards, fully restored front hatch holds a horizontal spare tire.

If you're looking for fun, practical transportation, this fully sorted Super Beetle looks awesome and is ready to go. Call, click or visit RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome car!

      Who ever restored that beetle fucked it up. Beetles after 1970 had a 3point seatbelt not a lap belt. And that is a modified 75 engine and muffler which sounds like shit.

      la parte posterior del vehículo no corresponde al año 1973 y la máquina está súper modificada, más potencia, pero pierde en su estado original que es hermoso, más que las modificaciones, yo tengo un 1973 y me encanta, sencillo, eficiente, excelente trabajo, Felicitaciones y un saludo cordial desde México.

      For USA models the large curved windshield and raised dashboard were first introduced with 1973 Super Beetle. 1973 SB had a one year only rounded top for front seat back. Sometimes when close to model year end , changes are started for what is "new" for next model year.
      1974 SB bumpers also had a raised rubber center strip.

      Well, it has a 74 dashboard then. I own a 74 and it's the damn same thing, but you are right about the bumpers.

      Bumpers are from a 1973.
      1974 model year had torsion type bumper brackets and
      the bumper was much bigger. Bumper for a 1974 also had
      end caps.

      Love the paint job. Not so sure about the interior are the exhaust system. Prefer the twin pipe original. What really caught my attention was the total lack of sound insulation in the engine bay. All that bare metal must make that a noisy car to drive. ( Not that it matters now as it was 3 years ago now. :-))

      Where's the motor insulation---the tar panels that go behind the engine and side firewalls or whatever they are using for that nowdays?  Must be a might warm and noisy in that back seat.
