Classic Car Overview

This is how you want your VW to be. You start with a final-year one like this 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible and give it the right look of distinction and subtle upgrades to be a terrific total package.

Plus, the bright chrome bumpers, shining trim, mirror-like wheel covers, and upgraded exhaust tip all come together to create the perfect personality for a sunny-day Beetle. And while you want to always be open to the world, the nice black top also looks well-coordinated thanks to the classic black running boards. In fact, with these crisp black elements in place, this Beetle looks more like a bumble bee. We have plenty of receipts showing interior upgrades in 2016.

You get all the right iconic elements in the Beetle, including the Wolfsburg crest on the steering wheel and the single pod for the stylish VDO gauge. This car is also about the thoughtful touches like the dash cover and AM/FM/cassette stereo to keep this cruising machine with the best tunes. But the best feature of this interior is how it continues to carry that simple and sturdy feeling that comes from decades of building these Beetles correctly. The air-cooled motor has a hypnotic hum, and Ferdinand Porsche placed it in the rear to get the most out of the small powerplant. Thats what give this Beetle such an appeal. This 1600 motor was the largest of the series, and so you get the best original style-power to pair with the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission. In total, this package allows you to confidently get the most out of the motor. Plus, as a Super Beetle, you know you get the best of the breed.
