In 1979 this Beetle left the factory in a very attractive light blue metallic, trimmed with a black top and black interior. The delightful cabriolet was sold new by Malcom Pray of Pray Motors to its first owner. Throughout his 37 years of stewardship the original owner took fantastic care of the car, using it sparingly on nice days and special occasions. As a result, the car only has 16,830 original miles and presents beautifully. Accompanying the car is a file containing service and maintenance receipts which attest to the care that it has received. Also included are the original tools, manuals, and keys. This wonderful, final year Super Beetle Cabriolet presents an opportunity to own an iconic automobile that is sure to put a smile on your face for years to come.
It's difficult to imagine an automobile that had as great an impact on the world's motoring public than the Volkswagen Beetle. The simple little rear-engined car was intended as a basic family conveyance, cheap to buy and cheap to maintain. Its creators could hardly foresee that the Beetle would eventually become one of the world's best-selling cars, assembled in dozens of countries, adored by young and old alike, a symbol of minimalist, unchanging design. The original Beetle gave way to the longer and wider Super Beetle in 1971. The front suspension was updated with coil springs and McPherson struts. 1979 would be the last year of the Super Beetle in the United States.
