Description for Volkswagen Beetle-New 1978

After nearly three decades in the United States and even longer in Europe the "people's car" the Volkswagen Beetle reached the end of its remarkable history in 1979. The creator of the entire compact car movement and an icon of culture – both mainstream and counter – the Volkswagen's evolution mirrored the massive changes in the American auto industry as it went from basic transportation in its original 1100 cc split rear window 24 horsepower 1946 form through various upgraded trim levels a...nd higher output engines peaking at 65hp in the late 1960s. 1971 even brought a name change as VW's product line expanded and the Beetle nickname became the model's formal title. The 1978 Volkswagen Beetle offered here was sold new in May of 1978 at Tom Sullivan VW in Southfield Michigan. The Beetle changed hands at some point and has belonged to the current owner for over 20 years where it was used only in good weather and for sunny summer day cruises. It is dressed in copper paint that shows well over a white vinyl interior that represents well. The chrome remains in great shape and shimmers in the sun. The car comes with the owner's manual and maintenance book and car cover. This Beetle just received a new fuel pump and runs and drives well. A Beetle convertible is one of few cars that will always bring a smile to onlookers' faces. VW invested millions to re-create the Beetle mystique in the New Beetle but there's no substitute for the original particularly when it is as original as this 1978 Beetle convertible.
