Here is an extremely rare and highly
desirable 1979 Volkswagon Bug Convertible.
Karmann Edition - Fuel Injected - Air
This was the last year that VW made the
convertible model so it is the most collectable of all the Bugs.
Although I am a dealer, I have owned this
particular car for several years. It's never really been part of my for
sale inventory. I used to drive it all the time but then I just got into
bigger, better, and much faster cars. The car has been sitting for a few
years and I just don't have the time for it anymore so we have decided to
finally put it up for sale.
The car is originally from Arizona but it has
been in Canada since 1990. Since the car has been sitting for a few years,
it does need some mechanical work to get it on the road. It basically
needs a brake job (shoes, drums, cylinders, flex hoses, master cylinder), a
front right outer tie rod, and a muffler. If your mechanically inclined
and can do the work yourself, great, otherwise I can arrange to have everything
done. The tires should be replaced also as they are a little cracked.
The car fires up no problem and the engine is in great running order. It
doesn't blow any smoke at all.
The top is like new and it even has a rear
glass window with rear defrost.
There are no
signs of any previous accident repair work. The carpet is new. As
with most of these cars, there are cracks on the dash but I have a dash cover
that will go over top. The seats are in great shape. I had them re-stuffed
a few years ago. I put a new fuel pump in last year. The floors are
I lost my indoor storage a couple of years
ago so I had to leave the car outside in the winter. There is some rust in
a few areas which I have photos of below. It is surface rust for the most
part. Prior to the last few years, the car was always stored indoors.
Thanks again for your interest. I look forward to speaking soon.
