Classic Car Overview

This 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is a low mileage example of the final year Bug. So to find it so authentically presented and in a great color combo means a classic droptop thats exciting for far more than its value price. When it comes to owning a convertible Bug, 1979 was the final year of a legend and the best of a breed. The silver looks nice in the sunshine, and even when its time to button up, the black roof creates a timelessly elegant color combo. This has only about 58k miles on the odometer, and it translates to an authentic look everywhere, including a well-respected completeness and preservation in the details. You also have the later Super Beetle desirable pieces like the sport wheels. And its easy to love a late-model Bug because it has the reputation of quality that came from decades of knowing how to build these droptops with precision and strength. Beneath the roof is a crisp black interior, so the terrific silver on black presentation is seen no matter if top is on or off. And just like the exterior, its clean, complete, and quite correct. The high-back bucket seats that came on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day cruising. Volkswagen treated these last few Beetle convertibles as premium machine, so you got plenty of features, including the wood appearance package on the dash and a rear window defogger. Youll enjoy the classic experience as you grab the Wolfsburg steering wheel, the stick shift is in the perfect VW placement, and even the correct single VDO gauge pod is still in place. It has a nice vintage feeling, right down to the AM radio thats still on display. The air-cooled motor has a hypnotic hum, and Ferdinand Porsche placed it in the rear to get the most out of the small but mighty powerplant. Thats what give this Beetle such an appeal. This 1600 motor was the largest of the series. In fact, the twin-port fuel-injected example seen here was the final evolution for the Beetle. It fires up easily and idles nicely. 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. The MacPherson strut independent front suspension and front disc brakes are welcomed additions to those who enjoy cruising their classics. This a low-mileage final-year Beetle convertible that loves to run. Its the kind of affordable vintage motor youll truly enjoy, but only if youre quick enough to catch this Bug. Call today!!!
