1979 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet by Karmann - Restored - As New For Sale


This totally rebuilt 1978 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet by Karmann is an original LHD Californian car which only had 2 owners in California with the second American owner buying the car in August 1986.

When he came to the UK with his job in 1989 he brought the car over with him from California and after 28 years of family ownership and covering just under 13,000 miles during this time, he sold it to the current English owner in 2014 with 73,300 genuine miles on the clock and there are letters in the history file confirming all the details including Californian paperwork.

Although the car was in very good condition overall, the current owner decided to have the car restored and he subsequently commissioned a full restoration on the car by VW Beetle specialist Beetlelink in Farnham, Surrey which started in 2015.

The car was completely stripped to the bare shell with all exterior panels removed and it was of course found to be completely ‘rust-free’ as you would expect for a Californian car and there are photographs to prove in the file. The car was repainted in its original colour of Red and almost everything on the car is new with the exception of the interior trim which is in excellent condition. The list of parts used is extensive, but everything is listed on Beetlelink’s invoices and the cost of this restoration was in excess of £23,000 and was finished in late 2017.

However, the owner was not happy with the way the car preformed and decided to replace the original Fi 1600cc Engine and fit a brand new VW ‘Heritage’ SSP 1776cc twin-port AD-code performance Engine with performance camshaft and big-valve heads and a lightened flywheel, new Dual Weber 40 IDF Carburettors were fitted in place of the original fuel injection, new 4 into 1 Exhaust System plus numerous other ancillaries and it now produces almost 95bhp!

In total, these additional works came to another £16,000 with parts and labour, making a total spend on the car of close to £39,000!

Suffice to say, this Beetle is in near Concours condition throughout and it really is incredible to drive and certainly the best Beetle that we have ever driven.
It is finished in its original colour of Red with its original Black Vinyl trim, new Black carpets, new Black Mohair/Double Duck Soft Top and Hood Bag, all new chrome fittings or re-chromed parts, all new rubber window seals, body seals, wiring, new Wheels and Tyres and much much more.

Since completion of the restoration and rebuild, the car has only covered 650 miles and is still ‘running-in’!

it is truly exceptional in every way and must surely be one of the best currently available for sale.

Car can be viewed @ our showrooms in Mortlake, SW London.
