Ragtop! This classic collector car is 46 yrs old with stong engine ~ she's an AUTOMATIC STICK. ~ I've owned this for over 25 yrs. The car has always stored in the winter months. Very good condition and whoever wants to be the new owner will LOVE this car. It's a must see! ***One peculiar option offered during this period on both the Beetle and Karmann-Ghia was a clutchless semi-automatic transmission called an “Automatic Stickshift.” Fortunately, the famous VW quality remained to the end by which time only the cabriolet was offered in the U.S. Production continued in Brazil and Mexico until recently. Parts are quite inexpensive and easy to find. Any Beetle makes an ideal first collector car.***
