With nothing but black and chrome on the outside, this 1979 Volkswagen Beetle convertible already has premium appeal even before you see upgrades in the interior and engine bay. And it's amazing you can get all of this turnkey ready fun for under $20k.
When it comes to owning a convertible Bug, 1979 was the final year of a legend and the best of a breed. Volkswagen knew how to produce these bodies with a Teutonic tightness that was still simple to maintain. It's this level of fit and finish that makes the Beetle a lasting icon. Adding to this enduring feeling is a professional application of the gloss black that gives this sunshine-friendly droptop a nice hard shine. But there is more to this VW. All the brightwork looks nice, from the mirror-like bumpers to the full-length accent that highlights the Bug's unique profile. This black and chrome is part of a well-coordinated package that looks great on everything, including the Minilite-style wheels.
Take a peek inside. If the exceptionally clean black interior looks slightly different from most other Beetles you've seen, that's probably because this one has comfortable cloth inserts in the seats. You'll instantly know the valuable difference these make the first day you return to your VW from a day at the beach. And because you want to get the most fun out of this droptop, the high-back bucket seats that came on the later models are particularly comfortable for all-day cruising. Another nice feature is a newer AM/FM/CD stereo with more powerful speakers in the kick panels. After all, who wants to hit the road without their sounds, especially in a car that just screams 'summertime fun' like this one. And from the moment you grab the Wolfsburg steering wheel, you'll begin to notice that this one is a true premium VW. It has plenty of great upgrades, from the wood paneling to provisions for factory air conditioning.
VW's standard 1600 cc flat-four was the sole powerplant, but while the last few years came with fuel injection, this one has been replaced by a carburetor. In the Beetle world, this is a welcomed change because it makes the engine more reliable, easier to service, and opens the door wider to the vast catalog of VW cheap-n-easy parts available to you. In fact, the whole engine was replaced around 3,000 miles ago. This is 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 a new MacPherson strut independent front suspension. So for those who want to drive their classics, this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW.
A beautiful black body, a tight black top, and a quality black interior... this is the best of triple black! And you get it all on a heavily invested classic Volkswagen. In fact, we have plenty of receipts to prove all the right maintenance and even the owner's manual for provenance. It's all the best of VW in an affordable package. So don't miss out, call today!
