For sale in our st. Louis showroom is a 1973 vw super Beetle sports bug. The sports bug was a one year only model and was only available in saturn yellow and marathon metallic. The sports bugs were equipped with recaro sport bucket seats, a thicker leather wrapped three spoke steering wheel, wider steel wheels to house the wider tires and matt black exterior trim. Optional equipment consisted of a short throw shifter, accent stripes and fog lights. This sports bug received a full body off restoration in 2012. The body was removed from the pan for a very detailed and correct restoration. No panel replacement was needed for the floor pan as it was very solid to start with. The front suspension was totally rebuilt including new ball joints, tie-rods, struts, strut carriers, urethane bushings and a bronze idler bushing. The engine was also rebuilt during the restoration. During the rebuild the rods and pistons were both balanced and the valves were also replaced. The body was finished with an epoxy primer and a base coat/clear coat by sikkens.
