Bug in the 'hood

I grew up with these cars and I just don't like the noisy, cold, drafty underpowered things. But they did have a hand in my education. Building dunebuggies out of them taught me about the effects of abusing and repairing machinery. When you break something due to misuse and then beef it up so it won't break again, the next weakest part breaks. And so on and so on up the expense chain till finally everything is broken and you have to find another one and start over. 
This one seems to escaped that life and is a nice little toy complete with its metal flake orange paint and flashy chrome bits. I'm guessing 1972?
