The classic bug is the true example of a vintage car that's affordable to obtain, easy to maintain, and great classic to give an individual touch. This 1971 Volkswagen Beetle is a great example to fully uphold that tradition with a few investments in upgrades for both fun and functionality.

The Beetle has an instant personality that comes from looking like nothing else that came before it. But the heart of the culture is the distinction that comes with individual flair. That's why these are so fun to customize. This one starts with an upgrade to a bright blue with a modern metallic element. There's even extra shine from the added trim and polished wheels (these even seem to lift the stance a little for a sporty attitude.) There's also better function with additional lighting under the bumper and added third brake light in the rear. As you look over the whole car, it just shows you a cool mix of sturdy German build quality and individual American style.

Inside are a ton of upgrades, but they're all done in a thoughtful way. For example, the three-spoke sports steering wheel still has VW's Wolfsburg crest in the center. And the auxiliary readouts under the dash are from VDO, so that they coordinate with the main one from the factory. And if you're a Beetle fan, you know the parcel shelf under the dash is a callback to the early Bugs. This is also built for added comfort with upgraded front bucket seat, cup holders, and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo.

Volkswagen's flat-four motor is the secret to the car's success. It has the hypnotic air-cooled hum that makes motoring fun. They built this 1600cc unit to be stout, and that's why it still runs strong today. Plus, you have nice upgrades like dual carbs for power and wider tires for road holding. This isn't a muscle car, but smart engineering with the motor over the driving wheels makes this feel more substantial. And the control of a four-speed manual transmission means you and the machine feel like a team getting the most out of the motor. It's this full driving experience that adds to the personality and why the Beetle has such a loyal following.

This Beetle shows off the fun of an individual personality. So to find it on a value-priced classic, you know you want to make it yours. Call today!!!
