This is a special edition Super Beetle. The "Sun Bug" was built in very limited numbers in 1974. Available as a couple or convertible, the convertibles were the most desirable and produced in the most limited numbers. These cars were equipped with rosewood finish dash panels, simulated leather padded four spoke sports steering wheel, adjustable sports seats with special Nut Brown leatherette and corduroy upholstery, matching door and side panels, and loop pile carpet.
It's an outstanding example that has been restored to the highest quality. Everything on this car is exceptional from the paint, to the rubber seals, to the chrome. It has the optional bright steel wheels that are exceptional with no blemishes. Fitted to the wheels are Kumo tires that are in outstanding condition. While the exterior does show some petina, its overall in outstanding condition and shows exceptionally well. The Convertible top is close to perfect as well.
Inside the brown leatherette seats are excellent. All of the operating controls on them work so they can be adjusted in any position. The door panels, carpets, and dash are all of the highest quality. There are no cracks anywhere and are close to perfect. The same for the headliner. We dont know how old the top is, but we can say its also close to perfect. Overall everything is extremely impressive on this Sun Bug.
All of the operating controls work as they should. The clutch is perfect with no slippage and the gear box is tight. All of the fan controls work as does the horn, lights, and AM radio. Driving this Super Beetle is a thrill. Although, not a quick thrill! It fires right up, idels smoothly and is a ton of fun. In driving the car for our pictures, we were stopped everywhere with onlookers asking questions.
We have seen many Beetles. Several times we attempted to buy them but they weren't in the condition that met our standards. This Beetle is a true Pedigree car. Hagerty prices these cars up to $28,100 for a number 1 car. They feel a number 2 car is $21,500. We are offering this Sun Bug for sale for $19,900. We are pricing is aggresively for a fast sale.
