Mileage: 58,158 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Nashville is proud to present this 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle. The new larger Beetle was labeled the 1302/1302 S. The main purpose of a new larger Beetle was to provide increased luggage capacity, which was increased by nearly 50%. MacPhearson strut suspension was added, similar to what was used in the Type 4, and the front track was also widened. The new suspension layout allowed the spare tire to be positioned flat under the trunk floor, although the car had to be lengthened slightly to accomplish this. This also allowed a reduction in turning radius making the already small platform, even more maneuverable. To gain additional room, the under-dash panel was lowered, allowing the fuel tank to be shifted rearward. From the windscreen back, the Super Beetle was identical to its smaller progenitor, except for having the semi-trailing arm rear suspension as standard equipment. This Beetle comes to us in excellent condition with an incredibly healthy stock engine that propels this bug down the road. This car is so fun to drive. This one is one of a kind. The interior has been upgraded with nicely padded gray high back seats. Equipped with a more modern sound system this beetle not only sounds great but runs with the best of them. This little bug would make a great daily driver! Make it yours today by calling us down at the Nashville showroom at 615-213-1800 or visit us on the web at Nashville@gatewayclassiccars.com
