1973 VW "Sports Bug" For Sale



This Washington based 1973 Sports Bug is going to make some collector very happy indeed.
It is not often an example of this limited edition car comes up for sale and one in this condition is
an even rarer occurrance! This is original paint!


The Sports Bug was available only in 1973 and it was only available in two colors...the Saturn Yellow you see here
or a blue...the Yellow of course being the most striking.
The cars featured some unique additions like the widened steel wheels, a special steering wheel and special interior as well.
The blacked out chrome is another unique attribute.


The stripe along the body below the windows was optional from what I have heard.
