Vehicle Description

1979 Volkswagen

Car History

We have a vintage 1979 Volkswagen Beetle convertible here at Adventure Classics that you will want to not only collect, but have fun driving with the top down too!

It has all the right features to make you want to do both with its 4-cylinder and four speed and the nice convertible top.

The 1979 convertible Bug was the final year for that collectable Volkswagen and it looks great from all angles with its pretty blue paint, red accented brakes, and aggression, and the eight-spoke polished alloy wheels.

Engine & Drivetrain

VW's standard 1600 cc flat-four was the only engine available, but while the last few years came with fuel injection, this one has been replaced by a performance carburetor. In the Beetle world this is a welcomed change because it makes the engine more reliable, easier to service, and opens the door wider to the vast catalog of VW cheap-n-easy parts available to you.

Our engine is mated to a tried-and-true four-speed manual transmission which gets the most performance and fun driving out of the engine.

It has great steering box, big brakes, strut front end suspension, chrome open element air cleaner, and a very clean and tidy engine compartment.


The inside features a clean tan interior upgraded to a leather look with high-back bucket seats and headrests that came on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day cruising.

Another nice feature is a newer AM/FM/CD stereo radio and speakers under the dash, factory steering wheel and dash with all the factory gauges and wood grain trim, carpet and floormats.

The interior of this VW has a simple and sturdy feeling that comes from decades of building these VWs correctly.


The exterior is painted in a very pleasing shade of light blue paint with plenty of shine to highlight all the factory curves of the Beetle body. The tan manual Convertible Top is made from long lasting StayFast material and it has a convertible boot and car cover, and it has an overall aggressive look with the eight-spoke alloy wheels.


VW Beetle ownership is a great experience that ranges and a lifestyle that includes social camaraderie and many available clubs. Our vintage 1979 Volkswagen Beetle convertible we have here at Adventure Classics will be a great addition to your collection.
