The lovable little bug was the longest running production car in history using the same basic platform and sold around the world. Between 1938 and 1980 some 21,529,464 had been built. Americans have a special fondness for these prolific beetles, considering that the majority of them landed on US shores during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and most baby boomers have a Volkswagen story. The final year for the Beetle was 1980, of which all cars were all Cabriolets including 900 special edition versions.
Volkswagen produced 900 Special Edition Super Beetles. They all came in triple black with styled steel sport wheels and white wall tires. The interior features twin map pockets, dual rear ashtrays, full carpeting, a passenger-side visor vanity mirror, burled wood dashboard applique and this car was ordered radio delete. This car is 100% original right down the original owner’s manual, original tires and date coded wheels and up until recently was part of a private Volkswagen Museum collection. The engine was service in 2017 and runs flawlessly. Over the years these adorable Volkswagens have touched more lives than anything else on wheels with the exception of perhaps a bicycle. They are more popular now than ever before and have achieved true cult status. The “Epilogue Edition” is fittingly painted in black and is must for any collector of German classics.Register To Bid On This Vehicle
