Looking for a cute classic car that is sure to please anyone.This 1978 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible. Made in July 1978 at the Karmann factory in Osnabrück, West Germany, this example is one of the last 1978 models.

Finished in white, the paint and exterior trim are in overall very good condition, but thereis a scuff on the hood and some minor surface rust. The windows are clear and intact and the backlight has a rear defroster grid, while the lights are intact and haze-free. This Super Beetle rolls on radials, sized 165R15, surrounding standard factory vented wheels. All of the body panels are straight and solid. The cargo area is in good order, the engine bay is very tidy and the bumpers look good.

Under that rear hood is a rebuilt 1600cc fuel-injected flat four-cylinder engine that runs perfect and just had a full tune-up. Arebuilt four-speed manual transmission shifts very smooth through all the gears. This car runs and drives really nice. You can drive her home anywhere!

Inside, the seats are near-excellent condition, the matching carpet looks very good, as does the one-piece instrument panel with its VDO gauges. The original, four-spoke steering wheel is present and the inner door panels feature flexible map pockets for small-item storage. Addition storage is available in the cubbies clustered around the shifter and center console. The mirror glass, console and shifter all look good. Completing this interior is aFactory stereo.

This Volkswagen is an ideal summer cruise car, especially with a fuel-injected motor; just flip the top back and go! Late ‘70s VW Super Beetle Convertibles are rare and this car would turn heads at any cruise night or weekend cruise event. People would likely pepper you with their own VW Bug tales. Take this cute bug home today!
