FUEL-INJECTED 1600CC MOTOR, UNIQUE RIVER BLUE METALLIC PAINT, DROP TOP BUG!

This 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible comes from the final year for this long-running iconic line. So for many of us, this drop-top is sought after for its history, as well as some of the best pieces of evolution - like premium features and fuel injection.

We like that this one is wearing a respray of its factory-correct shade of River Blue Metallic. It's a distinctive look that also properly shows off the history of this significant VW. You've undoubtedly noticed the value price for this drop-top Bug. It's there to leave room in your budget for a respray and any updates/upgrades/personalization you may want to do down the road. But make no mistake, this one is a ton of fun from day one. The body panels have a good look that shows off the classic silhouette. The black folding roof is a newer piece that fits nicely, and we love the way it coordinates with the EMPI-style wheels for an almost two-tone appearance. It's a true classic cruiser.

The black interior continues the two-tone style even when the top is down. There are nice details like newer carpeting, a grippy steering wheel, a proper convertible boot, and newer covers for the high-back front bucket seats. Just like ... Please ask for the full description.

FUEL-INJECTED 1600CC MOTOR, UNIQUE RIVER BLUE METALLIC PAINT, DROP TOP BUG!

This 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible comes from the final year for this long-running iconic line. So for many of us, this drop-top is sought after for its history, as well as some of the best pieces of evolution - like premium features and fuel injection.

We like that this one is wearing a respray of its factory-correct shade of River Blue Metallic. It's a distinctive look that also properly shows off the history of this significant VW. You've undoubtedly noticed the value price for this drop-top Bug. It's there to leave room in your budget for a respray and any updates/upgrades/personalization you may want to do down the road. But make no mistake, this one is a ton of fun from day one. The body panels have a good look that shows off the classic silhouette. The black folding roof is a newer piece that fits nicely, and we love the way it coordinates with the EMPI-style wheels for an almost two-tone appearance. It's a true classic cruiser.

The black interior continues the two-tone style even when the top is down. There are nice details like newer carpeting, a grippy steering wheel, a proper convertible boot, and newer covers for the high-back front bucket seats. Just like the exterior, there's room for improvement for those looking to elevate this from an easy anytime cruiser to a more car show kind of style. But there are the right kinds of features that will excite anyone who loves a good classic Beetle. These were premium vehicles in their last few years where only the convertible was available at your Volkswagen dealer. This one displays that correctly with details including the wood-like trim and stock AM/FM radio that's still there for a display. There are even provisions for air conditioning. It will need servicing to restore the function, but how cool is that to find an A/C Bug?!

The 1600cc motor in the rear was the largest of the series. In fact, the twin-port fuel-injected example seen here was the final evolution of the Beetle. It fires up easily and idles nicely. So you get the best original-style power to pair with the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission. In total, this package allows you to confidently get the most out of the motor. Plus, as a Super Beetle, you know you get the updated suspension for the best of the breed. Those upgraded wheels even allow for better cruising tires.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. This is the value-priced VW convertible that lets you enjoy it today and plan all the best ways to personalize it for tomorrow. Call today!!!
