SuperBeetles.com featured Michael Hahn’s 1974 Super Beetle called, “Cherry Bomb” for the month of July. Michael went to work right away by tearing out the front suspension and replacing everything with Top Line Parts suspension adjustable struts, sway bar and urethane bushings along with replacing all of the worn-out front disc brake parts.
All of the external components of the 1776cc motor were replaced to squeeze out a bit more power. Modifications for the ignition include a Pertronix Ignitor III Billet Distributor, a Flame-Thrower 60,000 volt Super Coil and 8mm spark plugs wires. Brand new dual Kadron carbs handle the fuel while a brand new 1-5/8″ side-flow stainless steel exhaust handles the burnt exhaust gases.
Michael gutted the interior entirely and refinished the aftermarket dash to set the theme of the interior. He made his own stock door handles and installed Procar by SCAT reclining seats. In addition, stock wheels with 4″ wide BRM wheels and 135/70R15 tires for the front and 5″ wide BRM wheels and 205/70R15 tires in the rear.
