Michelins, CD Player, Very Fresh

Well Serviced Car. Lifelong Service Records, 113,000 Orig Miles
This week Canyon State Classics brings to market a beautiful 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible. This Bug was sold new in San Diego and spent many years there before spending some time as a summer cruiser in Chicago for a few years before making its way back to Southern California. This car was sold in 2010 by the famous Nickey Motors in Chicago for over $15,000...that was well before over $5000 was spent by the most recent owner making it perfect and totally reliable for his daughter to drive and enjoy! This little Bug has been nicely restored and shows well anywhere it goes, and can be driven just about anywhere as well. It has a look that is unmistakable Vintage VW with its vintage rag top and chrome accessories all around. Don't miss your chance to own a truly spectacular Beetle, which will get looks everywhere it goes.

The following is a list of options as this Beetle is currently equipped:

-1600cc Dual Port Engine Fuel Injected

-4 Speed Manual Transmission

- Refreshed Volkswagon Wheels and Center Caps

-Beautiful Steering Wheel

-Newer White Interior

-Newer Convertible Top

-Newer Paint

-Engine Rebuild

-Period Correct Replacement Michelin XZX Tires (All 5)

The body on the car is straight as an arrow and the pan is totally solid and was originally a southern California Bug. The paint on the car is finished in an eye popping Mars Red on white scheme which looks very nice which is all new trim! I would describe the overall paint as 8/10 quality with a few expected flaws and all original jams and front compartment. The car is riding on nice 15" VW wheels and has really cool Michelin XZX radials.

The interior is also in like brand new shape all around courtesy of the interior refresh. The seats are all in very good condition and look perfect, which shows the quality of materials used in this car. The carpets are all very nice are not worn or damaged. The dash is in good shape and matches the exterior to really set the interior off. All gauges and controls function as they should. All lights, gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. The bonnet is nicely carpeted with at and trunk bonnet trim and matching period correct spare tire.

Mechanically, this VW runs GREAT! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. A lot of time and money was spent under the hood of this little beetle. The motor is a fresh rebuild with less than 15,000 miles on it. It was definitely built to show and go! The clutch and transmission were also overhauled at the time of the engine build so they are reliable as well. I was told total cost of the engine build alone is well over $2000. The fuel injection really makes these bug as reliable as any other car and allows one to enjoy a cruise without any of the hassle of the carburetor.

All in all, this is truly one of the coolest Beetles on the road today. This car can not be duplicated for my asking price, I dare you to try. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owner. This is your chance to get an like new classic Beetle for a fraction of the original cost. The car has a clean title.
