Super Beetle 1979

Title Status --
Exterior Color White
Interior Color Black


This 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is from the final year of the Bug. So to find it such an authentically presented car with a great color combo and solid recent investments means it's a classic drop-top that's 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 white looks nice in the sunshine. When it's time to button-up there's a newer black convertible top, and that creates a crisp and timelessly elegant color combo. You also have the later Super Beetle desirable pieces like the added trim, easier gas fill, and sport wheels. And it's 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 tuxedo-like presentation is seen no matter if the top is on or off. There have also been some nice investments in fundamentals like new carpeting and a new dash pad. The high-back bucket seats that came on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day cruising. You'll enjoy the classic experience as you grab the Wolfsburg crest steering wheel, the stick shift is in the perfect VW placement, and even the correct single VDO gauge pod is still in place.

The 1600 motor was the largest of the series, and it was placed in the back for better power delivery and traction. Plus, the twin-port fuel-injected example seen here was the final evolution for the Beetle. There was even a new distributor and ignition system recently installed. The flat-four fires up easily and idles nicely. So you get the best original style-power to pair with the sturdy and smooth-shifting 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 get an updated front suspension for a better cruising classic.

Here's a final-year Beetle convertible that loves to run. It's the kind of affordable vintage drop-top you'll truly enjoy, but only if you're quick enough to catch this Bug. Call today!!!
