This is how you want your VW to be. You start with a later model one like this 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible, and then you give it good investments for a bright and vibrant style. That's why this is such a terrific drop-top for such a terrific price.

There has been a solid investment in this VW in about the last decade, and that makes for a very nice presentation today. The yellow paint is a quality application that has plenty of gloss and loves to radiate in the sunshine. So you can see why it's ideal for this sunny-day convertible. Even the chrome bumpers and trim add to this bright personality. Plus you have good body gaskets and a newer convertible top that contrast nicely against the yellow. In fact, with these crisp black elements in place, this Beetle looks more like a bumblebee.

This same yellow and black combo is still seen with the roof down. It's nicely finished with a clean/complete setup, including the comfy high-back bucket seats. There are some fun details, like the bug graphic in the floor mats and the yellow piping on the black convertible boot. There are also upgrades that make this a better cruiser, like the center console and modern AM/FM/CD stereo.

Under the rear hatch is VW's hardy 1600cc flat-four. This motor was the largest of the series, and so you get the best original style-power to pair with the versatile four-speed manual transmission. We love these Volkswagens because they are the kind of car that has a terrific classic look, but a better spare component availability than many new cars. So keeping it on the road is often easy and economical. Plus, as a Super Beetle, you know you get the best of the breed. It has an updated chassis that helps keep these feeling nimble.

Complete with owner's manual, a sharp-looking iconic Beetle convertible is already quite appealing. And at this obtainable price, it's downright irresistible. Call now!
