1972 Volkswagen Beetle Classic vintage chrome vw bug 1600cc 4speed manual
This 1972 Volkswagen Beetle has a barn find kind of story that lends itself to some cool history. That also means you'll get some original details not found on many other cars that are about to cross the half-century mark. But what you'll really like is that part of its resurrection story includes investments in the fundamentals to keep it a strong-running classic today.

The story we're told on this one is that it was stored away for 30 years before the owner passed away and it was resurrected for the road. That kind of lost generation story is backed up in the details, like the classic dealer tag on the rear hatch. And it has a straight look to the body and trim that tells you it has not been spending nearly 50 years battening traffic. However, they didn't just pull it out of storage and put it on the road. There was time and money invested to make sure this is a solid driver. You can see it on the exterior with newer tires and good window rubbers. You may decide to take the work further with a professional detail of the blue paint or other investment, but we already like how this classic has been properly revived so that it can tell its story out on the road.

The sea of blue continues inside with the distinctly dark blue upholstery on the seats and door panels. It's highly original, and so that excites many Beetle fans. Just like the exterior, you may decide to update a few items, but the unique appeal of this one really has the kind of authentic style we don't see too often anymore. Even the classic Volkswagen AM radio is still cranking out tunes. And when you look under the front hood, this one has the kind of details that usually were lost decades ago. The spare tire looks original, the trunk floor still has its factory cardboard lining, and even the desirable tool kit is still in place!
