Super Beetle 1978

Exterior Color White
Interior Color White


This 1978 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible has an awesome sense of style and the right subtle upgrades for true individuality. It makes for the ideal wind-in-your-hair classic.

The original Beetle had a spirit of camaraderie and this one seems to embody that. We\'re told it was restored by a father and son some time ago, and then it was with a family friend for the last dozen years. The overall presentation has its attraction rooted in being a driver-quality and driver-ready car. The idea with this one is being about to enjoy a fun classic drop-top from one of the final years for this icon. They have given it some personal touches, including the turbine-style wheels that are great for fitting better modern tires. And we bet you\'ll also budget to upgrade other features to make this VW even more personal. So you may update the color to something more vibrant or add custom tail lights, but the heart of the appeal is a drop-top built on automotive passion and German build quality.

The white roof looks good against the white body, and when you take it down, the creamy white interior is even more distinctive. So you have a very unique take on the triple-white presentation. These Super Beetles have an updated dash that gives you a better layout without losing the classic VW single VDO gauge. And there are some nice details upgrades, like the dash pad and parquet floor layout. And there\'s a nice driver\'s feeling from the well-contoured high-back bucket seat and sports steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest at the center.

The air-cooled motor has a hypnotic hum, and the 1600cc unit was the largest of the series. In fact, the twin-port fuel-injected example seen here was the final evolution of the Beetle. It makes for a car that fires up easily and idles nicely. Plus, you\'ll really like the confident feel of the clutch action and four-speed manual transmission. It makes for a quality cruiser, and this was made for driving. After all, you have the modern cruising tires, and the Super Beetle was built with an upgraded front suspension for better enjoyment.

The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and restoration photos. This is the drop-top VW that has a history of love, and now it\'s looking for you to give it some love, too. Call today!!!
