Vehicle Description

1979 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE CONVERTIBLE EPILOGUE EDITION, ALL ORIGINAL 911 ORIG MILES Last year of production for the German-built Beetle 1 of 900 produced Unrestored with 911 actual miles 1585cc engine 4-speed transmission VDO clock Radio delete Books and records Original tool kit Previously owned and ordered new by a Chevrolet Dealer in North Dakota Having covered only 911 miles since new, this 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Epilogue Edition is presented in unrestored condition. The final year for the German-made Beetle, 1979 saw only 900 Epilogues produced. This one is equipped with the fuel-injected 1585cc engine, 4-speed manual transmission and VDO clock, and it will be sold with books, records and the original tool kit. A radio-delete car, it seems only fitting that a final-edition car, particularly one representing such a well-loved automobile, be in reflective silence without a radio. After all, for many, it wasn't a party. Previously part of a private collection, the Epilogue Editions are very important to the company history, marking the segue between original concepts and new ideas. By the time the last German-made Beetle exited the assembly line in January 1980, 21,529,464 had been built, marking it as the longest-running production car ever using the same platform. It provided transportation for countless people around the world, and it was popular and inexpensive to purchase and maintain, largely a part of the Beetle appeal. Times were changing rapidly by the mid-1970s though; demands on auto makers were fierce-emissions and safety standards led the charge and Volkswagen realized the end was near for Beetle. With competition from all sides eroding sales, it simply wasn't feasible to continue production; it was time to introduce a modern vehicle for modern times. The last Beetles were convertibles, and all Epilogue Edition examples were produced in 1979. Each wore a triple-black motif with thin-line whitewall tires, again, rather fitting to mark the occasion.
