1979 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Convertible Super Beetle description
This beloved Super Beetle convertible has endured the test of time is is truly an iconic masterpiece. Peoples Car, Love Bug, Herbie, Slug Bug, Type 1, and many other names have been used to describe or refer to this iconic model throughout the world. The VW Beetle has been a recognizable car no matter where you are and what year the car is, it is always very easy to notice.
In 1979 the VW ceased production of the car to the US market and to celebrate the last year of this car, VW only produced the convertible version for the US dealer network. The Beetle remained true to its roots, but each year the car received some kind of tweak or improvement and in 1979 this car gave the owner the best it could offer.
This specific convertible is in quite nice shape and has recently been selectively restored to showcase the car in its best possible way. All new interior seating was installed, new door panels mounted, new carpet kit, new convertible top was installed and fresh coat of paint and many new moldings and trim were installed. The Engine was tuned up, fluids changed, new radio with Aux, kick panel speakers, new Wheels and Tires were installed. This very capable car is always the perfect first car for a driver or collector as parts are readily available and the vehicle is very simple to work on or modify. Classic looks and sexy lines make this a dream car for many and one that should be considered by all who love the looks and history of the VW Beetle. Slug Bug Silver!!!
