This 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible is from the final
year of the Bug. So to find it such an authentically presented car
with a great color combo and solid recent investments means it's a
classic drop-top that's exciting for far more than its value
When it comes to owning a convertible Bug, 1979 was the final year
of a legend and the best of a breed. The white looks nice in the
sunshine. When it's time to button-up there's a newer black
convertible top, and that creates a crisp and timelessly elegant
color combo. You also have the later Super Beetle desirable pieces
like the added trim, easier gas fill, and sport wheels. And it's
easy to love a late-model Bug because it has the reputation of
quality that came from decades of knowing how to build these
droptops with precision and strength.
Beneath the roof is a crisp black interior, so the terrific
tuxedo-like presentation is seen no matter if the top is on or off.
There have also been some nice investments in fundamentals like new
carpeting and a new dash pad. The high-back bucket seats that came
on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day
cruising. You'll enjoy the classic experience as you grab the
Wolfsburg crest steering wheel, the stick shift is in the perfect
VW placement, and even the correct single VDO gauge pod is still in
The 1600 motor was the largest of the series, and it was placed in
the back for better power delivery and traction. Plus, the
twin-port fuel-injected example seen here was the final evolution
for the Beetle. There was even a new distributor and ignition
system recently installed. The flat-four fires up easily and idles
nicely. So you get the best original style-power to pair with the
sturdy and smooth-shifting four-speed manual transmission. In
total, this package allows you to confidently get the most out of
the motor. Plus, as a Super Beetle, you get an updated front
suspension for a better cruising classic.
Here's a final-year Beetle convertible that loves to run. It's the
kind of affordable vintage drop-top you'll truly enjoy, but only if
you're quick enough to catch this Bug. Call today!!!
