Subaru Boxer Power: 1974 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle

The Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle is a famously cheap car to drive around…mostly because the engineering is simple, parts are cheap, and everything is fixable by a DIY mechanic.  Throw that all away with this next Beetle because it is powered by a watercooled Subaru 4-banger.  Find this 1974 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle offered for $7,500 near Seattle, WA via craigslist.
