The VW reputation of quality comes from decades of knowing how to build these droptops with precision and strength.
Power comes from the VW's sturdy 1600cc flat four with fuel injection linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most out of the motor.

As many VW fans already know, this is a Super Beetle. That means an improved steering box, bigger brakes, and MacPherson independent front suspension. So for those who want to drive their classics, this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW.

This car is incredibly solid and the VW runs and drives great. It rides on color matched VW wheels and performance tires and has a great sound coming out of the rear tip.


Beneath the black convertible top is a new grey twin bucket seat interior with the matching door panels and rear seat and grey carpets.

Volkswagen treated these last few Beetle convertibles as premium machines so it has extra features including wood grain on the dash, aftermarket stereo, correct single gauge pod, clock, Wolfsburg steering wheel, the stick shift is in the perfect VW placement, and just like the exterior, it's clean, complete, and quite correct.


Our Silver Metallic VW looks great with good body lines, great chrome and trim, and a professional repaint that makes it really stand out. Get this beauty in the sun and it lights up.

It has great chrome bumpers, chrome trim around the headlights, side mirrors, running boards, dual turn lights on the front fenders, and the usual side vent wings too.


It is not often you can find a 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle convertible as nice as the Silver beauty we have here at Skyway Classics and a great price too.

Come see it today. They are great cars that are a blast to drive, get thumbs up and admiration everywhere they go, and won't break the bank at the gas pump.
