With its triple-white appearance, strong/trusty drivetrain, and
overall sunny personality, this pristine 1979 Volkswagen Super
Beetle convertible is always up for fun - which makes it one of the
most desirable anytime classics out there for the money.
America adopted the original VW as part of the counter-culture, but
this one goes a bit more upper class in its appearance.
Triple-white was a more expensive option only offered towards the
end of the Beetle's run (it's even believed the last Beetle
drop-top was triple-white.) So we love a significant car like this.
The total presentation is quite complete, right down to the sport
wheels. You can see in the pictures that there are areas that need
improvement. But you also know from the market that this is offered
at quite a value price. The idea is to have a car you can have fun
with today, and have plenty of cash left over to make the
enhancements and personal touches that you really want.
Under the factory-correct white roof is the factory-correct white
interior. So yes, the paint, top, and upholstery make this the
ultra-desirable triple-white. These Super Beetles are great for
having the upgraded dash layout, and this looks clean and smooth.
Plus, high-back front bucket seats are all-day comfortable. There
are some nice upgrades like the billet window cranks, modern stereo
speakers, and an Alpine AM/FM/CD receiver. You'll still spot some
areas you can improve, but we all know how there are a ton of
catalogs/parts to really individualize these cars when even on a
budget. And these VWs have a terrific reputation of sturdy
components that are surprisingly easy to replace. And because the
fundamentals are all there, day one will have you taking down the
top, cranking up the music, and going for a fun ride.
In fact, going for a ride is at the heart of this car's appeal.
Power comes from the VW's sturdy 1600cc flat four, and this is a
later fuel injection car. The motor was rebuilt within the last
decade, and the quality of that investment is felt in the way this
one fires up eagerly and runs strong. It's linked to the sturdy and
versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get
the most out of the motor. The Super Beetle also means an improved
steering box, bigger brakes, and an updated front suspension. So
for those who want to drive their classics, this is one of the
nicest ways to experience a vintage drop-top VW.
Complete with build receipts, this convertible is fun on day one.
Plus, the pedigree and potential is irresistible. Call today!!!
