Is it easy to work on a 1974 VW beetle?

I was thinking of picking one up for 2 grand in great condition. Are they easy to work on if something goes wrong? Are parts inexpensive for the most part? What commonly goes wrong with these cars? I'm pretty good with working on cars but have been all domestic. I'm a little scared to purchase this car. Any info on these cars would be appreciated.

Anyone with a decent metric tool set & a good manual can work on their Type I Beetle. I recommend "How to keep your Volkswagen Alive" by John Muir.
BTW...V-Dubs don't leak oil: they mark their territory. And 90% of the time, if they do leak, it's from the pushrod tubes.
