The Volkswagen Beetle set records with production and sales
throughout the world. The car started off as a simple car for basic
transportation and never really moved to far from that initial goal
throughout its life cycle. Yes, there were some improvements and
creature comforts, but VW stayed true to its roots of manufacturing
a car that the average person could enjoy and be able to keep on
the road for a very minimal cost.
We are super excited to bring to the market for only the 3rd time
in its life this stunning 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle convertible.
This car represents the last year of production to the US market.
The very low miles on this car at just under 28k is documented in
several receipts and the condition is very reflective of the miles.
Sold new out of Precision Cars of Grand Rapids, Michigan in Feb of
1979 to Mr. Gus Vandermuelen. The car remained in the Grand Rapids
area exchanging two other owners before getting moved into a very
high end collection. This vehicle represents itself very well and
is a joy to drive. The trim, paint, chrome, interior and mechanics
are all in very good condition and it is evident that this Beetle
lived a charmed life.
All lights, turn signals, horn, radio, clock, and heat work
properly and function as you would expect. The convertible top is
in excellent condition and the proper factory boot cover is in
great shape. Inside the seats are in great shape, carpet is proper
and the dash and trim work is gorgeous. Vehicle starts up quickly
with the fuel injection system and idles with ease. Our test drive
revealed a spirited drive with clutch engaging properly along with
all four gears and reverse.
Very few of these exist in such well cared for condition and with
miles under 28k this might be one of the nicest on the market
today. Vehicle comes with clean title, several service records,
factory original owners' manuals, two keys and front bra cover.
