1973 VW "Sports Bug" For Sale


This 1973 VW Super Beetle is a pretty rare find.
Sure...VW made a ton of cars in 73, but this one was a bit of a rarity even when new.
This is a "Sports Bug".


This example is located in Southern California and is a nice clean driver quality car.
Its not restored to over the top levels or anything but it is a truly great runner and as you can see,
it has a lot of curb appeal just as it sits.


The paintwork was redone a while back and it was repainted in the original
Marathon Blue paint color.


Fun car and a pleasing color.


The Sports Bug was a limited edition release with a host of special details that were not seen on other Beetles.
The special seats, wheels and steering wheel were major components, the blacked out bumpers and trim were another detail.
A graphic stripe was also available as a part of the package but I dont think all Sports Bugs got it.


There were just two colors offered for the Sports Bug, the bright yellow and the
"Scintillating Marathon Metallic"
The advertising for the model was hilarious!


The "positively sensual" original Sports Bug steering wheel is here and in nice shape.
