1979 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible - Karmann Edition
The Volkswagen Beetle took the world by storm. By the late 1960s, the small car transcended the automotive industry and became a pop-culture giant. Volkswagen's "Think Small" campaign changed the way Americans looked at cars, shying away from the luxurious land yachts of the '40s and '50s and instead choosing the efficient and compact offerings from foreign manufacturers. The Beetle, the car that started it all, captured the hearts and minds of young Americans as an affordable and fun. This 1979 Volkswagen Beetle marks the end of an era, as the final production year of the Beetle for the global market. The Karmann Edition nomenclature is a nod to the first Beetle convertible, coachbuilt by Karmann in 1949. With only 6,899 original miles, this stunning example of a final-year VW Bug was owned by a well respected VW collector for many years before being purchased and enjoyed by one of our own clients. Finished in a light blue over white interior with a matching white convertible top, this is a Volkswagen that will receive adoration everywhere it goes. The fuel injected motor, mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, runs strong and starts right up without hesitation. Whether its destination is the beach, town, or a private collections, this ultra-low-miles VW Beetle will be a welcome sight.
