1972 Super Beetle!

Postby scottsain » Thu Jun 25, 2015 1:36 pm

I found this car behind a grain silo on Wadmalaw Island earlier this year. I bought it brought it home to sell. After looking at it for a few days I realized that it was a pretty nice somewhat unmolested car. So I decided that I would build a car for the VW Drag Night using this one. Quick rundown: it is a 1972 original paint Super Beetle. I replaced almost every item except the paint. It has new Topline suspension, new brakes, a new Mike PEP transmission, new Continental tires, TMI interior, new headliner, and a lot of other things. Enjoy!

(EDIT: the pics weren't showing up. I'll post them again.)

Serta may claim to be the "perfect sleeper" but this is the real deal. All it needs now is a monster engine. =D>

So the guy that won this at Drag Night 2015 is moving and doesn't have indoor storage for it in Florida. I stayed in touch with him over the past two years to invite him to shows and other events. I really liked this car when I built it. He told me he would sell it so I made an offer and boom he took it! It is now back in my garage. It will be a great daily driver!

SBC for life!

Glad it worked out for you and made it back home with its creator. Nice super! =D>
