Very nice looking car. If you look at the top of this website click on tech. Then click on tech talk with Rick. Then find the heater channel replacement section. Look that over it will show you exactly where the heater channel is. Basically it is on the outside of the floor pans that sends heat through the car. More importantly it is the bugs "frame" and provides the structural integrity of the car. Another good area to check on Supers are the top strut mounts in the trunk. Check and make sure they are not rusted.
Looks similar to my '72 marina blue super. Look under it with a big enough mirror to look for rust. Check the strut housings in the trunk for rust. How many miles on it? engine, clutch, brake shoes, master cyl, wheel cyl's been replaced? Boots on tie rod ends and struts not torn or missing? Gas lines in good shape? Window rubber seals, door, trunk lid, engine hood seals been replaced? Engine seal (to keep muffler heat out of engine compt.) been replaced? How old are tires & battery? Does the front end shimmy between 45 - 60 mph? Everything work, even the fresh air fan? Bring a friend along that knows bugs. I bought mine 4 yrs ago for $2800, no rust but it needed a lot of work. Put another $4200 into it, now its a great running trustworthy super with only 60,000 original miles on it! Cya, beetledon
