Triple black 1979 convertible with 46,550 original miles. Upgraded stereo system with CD player and AM/FM stereo radio (original radio comes w/vehicle for reinstall, if desired). Vinyl seats and interior in very good condition except for a 6" tear on the driver seat. Convertible top is great considering it is almost 40 years old. Top is fully insulated and seals up well, fitting perfectly into the matching black boot. Body has no rust and paint has been maintained in an ultra smooth condition and finish. All glass, rubber gasketry, chrome etc, is original. Clean and tidy trunk area and engine bay makes this one super nice super Beetle convertible. I am the third owner. The car has been garage-kept all it life and has never seen rain except for that rare occasion when I was out for a country drive and was surprised by a passing rain cloud. The car starts up and drives well and is solid. It runs better than I do, considering it is almost 40 years old.
“Driver seat is solid but a has slight wobble with a 6" tear (see picture), Roof is original with no tears but could use some padding, AC worked but was disconnected it years ago, turns freely, inside liner is all there but it is dingy from age, Speedometer cable broke last month, just got a new one, but it functions properly, No body rust but some minor stuff underneath and in runners (got new ones).”
