HIGHLIGHTS: Nicely preserved and desirable classic 1979 VW Super
Beetle Convertible! Super clean high-quality driver vintage VW
ready for a new caretaker! This puppy is turn key!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Beetle is in incredible condition,
and shows extremely well. The body is very straight, and really
shows the level of care this car has received over the years. Even
the underside is in nice condition, which is no small feat for a
classic Beetle! Though some metal repairs have been made in the
past, as seen in the photos, they appear to have been done
correctly. This car appears to be an older restoration, and shows
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Beetle looks to have received a
repaint in years past, but still shows nicely. While there are some
minor paint defects to be found, as shown in the photos, overall
the paint is in great condition and perfect for a high-quality
driver like this for anyone who wants to have some fun and look
good doing it!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Finished in that classic Volkswagen
black vinyl, the interior is a great contrast to the silver
exterior. The vinyl is in nice condition, showing only light wear
and tear. By 1979, the Beetle's reign in the US was coming to an

Karmann-built convertible. Most notable, the simulated wood grain
inserts and bolstered seating helped this car feel modern for the
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Another thing that VW used to bring these
Beetles up to speed was factory fuel injection, which was less
common than you think in the early 1970s when VW introduced it for
the Beetle. Under the hood sits a 1600cc VW engine, and it runs
great! The fuel injection system works well, and this Beetle fires
right up with a turn of the key-not even close to the start up
process for the old carbureted 1600s! This Beetle runs like a
champ, and sounds just great! If you're looking for something to
buy today and take to a car show tomorrow, this just might be the
car for you.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The good overall condition, and
the small factory changes that make these last Beetles feel more
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This one is hard to
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? As one would expect with a Beetle, the
heater is not working.
