For Sale: 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This is how you want your VW drop-top to be. You start with the final year of the evolution - the 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible - and then give it investments to keep this richly-colored car a great all-around cruiser.


This VW has a crisp and clean look inside and out, and so it's at the premium end of classic Bugs. The paint sets the tone for that correctly. After all, we all love a red convertible, and this gives you that boldness, but with deeper and more sophisticated tones. It has a vibrant metallic element, and the glossy finish does a terrific job of showing off Volkswagen's iconic curves. This car is coming off of two decades of ownership, and so as you look through the whole package, you'll see the added carefulness and investment that comes from long-term care. Bright chrome bumpers, clean sport wheels, a snug-fitting top, and full-length trim that looks like an unbroken line...it's all part of a top-quality presentation.


The clean black roof looks great against the darker red paint. And it even goes with the classic black running boards and upgraded tinted windows for a well-coordinated style. But really, a car like this is best when open to the world. That's why the restoration added a unique interior that has a handsome two-tone gray on the seats and door panels. Plush carpeting, good weather-stripping, and a smooth dash complete the full quality feel. There are nice details everywhere from the working clock to the clean trunk up front. And the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo means you get the best in driving music.


The air-cooled motor has a hypnotic hum, and the 1600cc unit was the largest of the series. In fact, the twin-port fuel-injected example seen here was the final evolution for the Beetle. This has the clean look of a well-maintained style. It makes for a car that fires up easily and idles nicely. So you get the best original style-power to pair with the sturdy and versatile 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 have the MacPherson strut independent front suspension, and modern touring tires are a welcomed addition to those who enjoy cruising their classics.


The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manual, and maintenance records that prove a history of well-kept care. This VW offers premium drop-top fun without losing the value price. Call today!!!
