Perhaps one of the most endeared car ever produced was the VW Beetle. Volkswagen literally rose from the ashes of WWII with the Volkswagen Type 1 or Beetle. The Beetle was different, simple, reliable and fun. These core elements would prove to be important as the VW beetle would eventually become to be the most mass produced car of all time; surpassing the Model T in 1972 with car number 15,007, 034 and by 1973 production of the beetle surpassed 16 million units. More amazing than the production numbers, is that the Beetle never became boring. Through Volkswagens commitment to quality, the Beetle kept evolving and improving over time. The introduction of the Super Beetle in the early 70s demonstrated that fact as VW deviated from their tried and true torsion bar front suspension replacing it with a coil over strut suspension improving usable space under the bonnet, creating a longer wheelbase and improving overall suspension and handling. This 1978 Volkswagen Convertible looks amazing in Barrier Blue with white interior and white top is in excellent condition. The new top was installed professionally in 2011. This Beetle has been extensively serviced to retain an awesome stock condition (all except for radio speakers). Its powered by the original 1585cc 4 cylinder engine paired with the manual transmission. Its a great survivor that has been well stored and maintained and it is a lot of fun to drive. For classic top down motoring, it doesnt get much cooler than this (and you get great gas mileage). Please call or email for more details!
