For sale is a 73 super beetle. Last of the small bumper supers. Thinning out the herd.
$2000 without motor i can include a rebuilt 1600 for 500$.
work completed recently: I have completed more work on the bug. All of the welds have been ground down. I adjusted the tie rods and installed the sway bar. Painted misc parts with satin silver (german look) cleaned up and painted the bumper brackets. Finished the sanding on the roof and quarters. Past couple weeks i have collected all of the parts that go along with the sale. Very little parts will need to be purchased to complete the bug. All parts have been boxed up and ready to go. Installed the doors, deck lid, fenders and front hood for easier transportation of the beetle. Project is getting closer to not being sold as a project. I will then sell as a completed beetle.
