1979 Volkswagen Beetle ConvertibleRust-Free, California Car, 39k Miles
This is a very nice example of the cute and classic 1979 Volkswagen Convertible that is a rust-free California car that has covered a mere 39,151 miles from new. This is the last year of the Beetle in the US and this example has been cared for its entire life by just two families. This Beetle is offered in our favorite color and is ready to be enjoyed for local shows or tours.
The DeRosa family acquired her in 2006 from its second owner. The Beetle had benefitted from a prior repaint and most likely some interior and convertible top replacement. With such low mileage and limited documentation, we are not certain what is original and which elements have been professionally replaced. Overall, she is in very nice condition and reflects its ultra-low mileage of 39,151 from new.
She was repainted in the original and correct factory color, River Blue Metallic (Paint Code LK6V). The paint has excellent shine and luster and is in touring condition today. There are several small scratches on three of the fenders and on the driver’s door. They’re only noticeable upon close inspection. The black convertible soft top and liner are not original and are in excellent condition. The chrome is original and shows very well.
The Black Vinyl interior is in nearly showroom condition. The black carpet and rubber mats also show very well and are in excellent condition. The dashboard and faux wood grained dash are in excellent condition and appear almost as new. It still shows its Craig cassette AM/FM stereo. The soft top liner is white in color and in very nice condition. The overall interior is in excellent condition reflecting the care and love it has received.
The 1979 Volkswagen Convertible comes standard with a 1.6 L 4-cylinder engine. She produces 48 BHP at 4,200 RPM. The power is transmitted through its four-speed manual transmission which shifts very smoothly. The engine compartment is nicely detailed and originally correct. Importantly, the undercarriage and belly pan all appear very clean, rust-free and in very nice visual condition. This is very important for these Volkswagens and again reflect its dry California life with limited miles.
