1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle
Modified 72 Super Beetle show vehicle. There are
several videos posted of the car that can be seen
on YouTube. Simple type “72 Super walk around”
in the YouTube search bar to view each.

The pictures speak for themselves, this car is super
clean and a real head turner. It went
thru a complete Pan off restoration with
photos to document the entire process. There is
absolutely no rust top or on the underside. All
custom steel construction, no fiberglass parts were

The front bumper was modified with unique LED
turn signals and provisions to hide the wiring. The
original mounting holes in the fenders and trim
holes in the hood were welded shut to complete the
shaved look up front. The rear fenders were
modified to accept 08 VW new beetle tail lights. The
rear license plate frame was relocated to the
bumper and the deck lid was shaved as well.
Center line wheels and BF Radial T/a tires have
less than 500 miles on them. Truly has a unique
one of a kind look!

The exterior body was completely stripped bare.
The heater channels were cut and repaired with
new metal. New front and rear aprons welded on.
The body was epoxy primed & painted
with base / clear while off the car. All of the panels
and trim were removed from the shell during
painting, no visible tape lines or overspray
anywhere. All the windows have upgraded West
coast metric rubber. Door window rubber parts and
fender welt was also replaced. The pan was section
stripped and repainted top and bottom
while the body was off. New brake lines, hoses,
wheel Cyls, master cyl, Steering damper, urethane
front end bushings and tie rod
ends installed.

The interior upholstery is custom with velour
centers & door panels cards etc, new dash pad,
carpet, floor mats. High power sound system, JVC
Bluetooth radio, fan cooled sub amp and box.
Original headliner is in great shape, no sags! Trunk

cleaner refined look.

The 1600cc engine was just completely rebuilt in
2021. New Mahle cylinders, rings & pistons, CB
performance cam and lifters, bearings and CB
performance rockers w/elephant style ends.
041 big valve heads are in great shape and do not
have much run time on them. Dellorto carbs were
also rebuilt while the engine was out. New heat
exchangers, stainless pushrod tubes, ign coil-
Etc. Has a unique sound with the Thunderbird
chrome header system with side exit mufflers.
Lightened 8 dowel flywheel, performance clutch
and quick throw shifter. The transaxle was swapped
from auto stick to a 4 speed unit in the late 90s. I
also have a spare manual transaxle, steering
column and some other parts for this car that I can
include in the sale. There isn’t a single part of this
car that has been left untouched.
