How would you like to open up a time capsule back to 1978? Well, sit down in this unrestored, low, low, mileage, Super Beetle Convertible and turn the key and you'll be doing just that! The fuel-injected, 1600cc, flat four, roars to life in the way that only an air-cooled VW can do and then idles smoothly. Push in the clutch and shift into first and you're off, driving in a car that embodies the feeling of a brand-new, 1978 Volkswagen Super Beetle... 40 years later! The late 1970s were bringing more emissions control and that tightening was going to end the air-cooled Beetle's run in 1979. By then, Beetle convertibles were becoming somewhat rare and in 1978, sales of Super Beetle convertibles were a mere 9,932 units for the U.S. After 1979, the air-cooled Beetle was no more in the U.S.
This gorgeous 1978 Super Beetle Convertible has traveled just 17,761 miles since new and drives just like it did when it was new! This one sports original Barrier Blue paint with original Off-White (looks tan) interior and a White convertible top with glass rear window. Needless to say, this car is in excellent condition! Air-cooled Volkswagens have been increasing in price over the years and collector quality examples are really climbing! This one would look great in your collection! If you agree, then don't delay, as this one will be gone soon!
