Classic Car Overview

This 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is from the final year of the Bug. So to find it such a car with a great color combo and a nice driving attitude means its a classic drop-top 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 arguably the best of a breed. After all, you had German build quality backed by decades of refining the product. The Lemon Yellow paint is a year-correct color that has a bold look and a good shine. Its not a fancy kind of show car, but instead, the right finish to give you carefree cruising all weekend and turn plenty of heads while doing it. Good bumpers, clean lenses, complete trim, good seals, and clean glass give you quality fundamentals. And the stock sport wheels have a cool hammered finish. Plus you have the black convertible top giving a nice contrast against the yellow. The tan interior has a distinctive style that gives this VW a nice cruising attitude. Thats also because it has good details, like good door panels, newer carpeting, and the convertible top cover. We especially like the seats. The contoured buckets gave these later VWs a level of comfort unexpected in a small car, and the upgraded cloth upholstery is a thoughtful touch for when you hop in on top-down sunny days. And a final year VW means you also get the best updates, like the soft-grip factory steering wheel and a proper dash with good heating vents. It all makes for a true classic thats also a truly nice cruiser. Under the rear hatch is VWs hardy 1600cc flat-four. This motor was the largest of the series, and it was converted to an easy-service carburetor setup. So that really goes to the road-ready nature of this Bug. Its a strong-running powerhouse, and you get the most out of it from the versatile four-speed manual transmission. The Super Beetle was given improvements to have a nimbler feeling on the road, and the newer tires help with this cars confident feeling. So its a drop-top you can enjoy to the fullest. Heres a final-year Beetle convertible that loves to run. Its the kind of affordable vintage drop-top that never asks for much but gives a whole lot of smiles in return. Call today!!!
