"Complete and good car with some paint touch ups and partly repainted, some rust around the lower body, and a dent on the right wing. Jack brackets on both sides are missing/removed, and rust holes must be repaired (see pictures)."


Introduced and marketed to active rally drivers as a single-type class only in 1973. Around 100 Cup cars with the distinctive pihl green color were ordered ready-made by Volkswagen's Swedish importer. On presentation of a racing license, the cars were sold. The model had a front air intake that could be used for an oil cooler, among other items. On this model, the map reader lamp on the passenger side was also ordinary. Two rally spotlights are also present in the front.

Since new, the car has only had three owners and has spent most of its time in Kil (near Karlstad). Except for the replacement of a front wing and spring leg tower, it is unrenovated. Several paint enhancements can be found around the lower bodywork. The engine is fine, but it does leak a few drops of oil onto the garage floor. Overall, we can say that the car is in good working order but could use some work to make it really nice. The car has 78,000 kilometers on it, but it could have gone 178,000 kilometers. but it appears to be the original 78,000 km

Unsure if it was driven in a rally? Only a few of the original "cup cars" beetles are still alive today, but several replicas have been built over the years.
