For Sale: 1979 Volkswagen Beetle in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is pleased to offer this 1979 VW Beetle convertible with an air cooled 1600cc engine and 5 speed transmission. The 1979 model year was the last year for the convertible Beetle which makes this car even more desirable. There were many upgrades done to the Beetle throughout its long production history and this car incorporates many of those improvements. The Macpherson strut front suspension gives this Beetle better handling and ride than earlier models. Unlike many vintage VWs that have had questionable and not always beneficial "modifications" done, this Bug is just as the engineers at Volkswagen who designed these cars intended. The body looks like it was repainted sometime in the past in a Turquoise, and is what GCC would consider a driver quality paint job. The Black soft top has no tears and works well, and the black interior is also in good original condition. The engine has a complete chrome dress up kit installed and adds a bit of extra interest. This car runs, drives and shifts as it should and is ready to take you on your next open road adventure, so put the top down, let the sun shine and let the good times roll in this classic VW Beetle convertible! Remember yesterday's thinkers are todays buyers so don't wait. Options for this 79 Beetle include: vinyl interior, seat belts, JVC am/fm/cd stereo, argent wheels, whit wall radials.
