1972 Volkswagen Beetle – Standard - Auction Closed

1972 Volkswagen Beetle – Standard


The “people’s car,” VW Bug, officially known as the Volkswagen Type-1, the Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most recognizable vehicles across the globe; there’s a reason it is called “the most popular vehicle in the world.”  In fact, 1972 is the year the VW Beetle surpassed the Model T Ford as the world’s most-produced vehicle.

The 1972 Beetles feature an 11% taller rear window than previous models, as well as the now famous convertible engine lid with four rows of louvers that have been used in all Beetle models since. Also first featured in the 1972 model is a four-spoke energy-absorbing steering wheel.

This classic, standard 2-door 1972 Volkswagen is featured in Saturn yellow with a black vinyl interior. The vehicle is nearly original, found at the current owner’s friend’s mechanic shop without an engine; the current owner bought the vehicle with the desire to restore it to the best of their ability. Recently furnished with a brand new 1600 engine, an updated 12-volt alternator, new door panels, a new copper gas line, and brand-new brakes and battery, the VW can be seen in the driving videos included in the listing. The newly installed engine has covered approximately 975 miles since installation. The owner claims the original radio is not in working order, but the new antenna has been purchased and installed.
