1972 Super Beetle build video
We turned a junk yard vw to a Beautiful Super Beetle. This took about 2
years to do. It is essentially a stock super beetle even down to the
working heat exchangers. I am planing to build a 1641cc engine w/ 110 cam
this winter to have in the car in the spring. These vw projects are great
to father son builds as they are cheep and easy to work on.
Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think, the video of
the car is not great quality because I was using the camera on my phone.
This is a video asking for advice. I'm painting a beetle for a guy that did
his own metal work..........

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
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

victory on Germany who didn't need any car caused of carpet bombing. They
made out sunny cars of them.
Here safe at home they give this severe nasty looking VW a SoCal, a sunny
car look. Now they would be able getting started picking up enthusiastic
girls around the beach area.
