For Sale at Auction: 1979 Volkswagen Beetle in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

Nicknamed "Edgar," this stunning triple-white 1979 Beetle convertible has undergone a full restoration. The car was disassembled, body panels were stripped to bare metal and the car was treated to a professional paint job. The restoration also included a new convertible top and new period-correct carpets, and the engine was rebuilt with less than 100 miles since completion. The engine rebuild included a new OE engine case, new dual-port heads, new connecting rods and a new 69mm counterweighted crankshaft. As part of the restoration, some modern upgrades were also performed, such as front disc brakes and heated seats. This Beetle is powered by a fuel-injected 1600cc dual-port engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. It rides on Empi BRM wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires. Service receipts since 2012 totaling $15,871 are included with the sale.
