Car description

After 4 years, I have completed this meticulous restoration of this beautiful red 1978 Volkswagen Superbeetle convertible!

This is a western car so it has no rust and has NEVER had rust! I stripped the car down and had a top quality original red paint job done and then rebuilt or replaced nearly everything. Whenever the original part needed replacement, I did so with NOS or lightly used original parts - with a few exceptions.



Top notch paint job

All new body rubber (windows, doors, seals, gaskets).

All panels are perfectly straight and true.

Professionally polished and buffed.

Brand new professionally installed convertible top and head liner. It was done properly and fits right.



All seats have been professionally rebuilt with new upholstery.

All new door cards but original handles and hardware.

New original style rubber floor mats.

Brand new original dashboard (NOS).

Very clean.

New seatbelts etc.


Excellent running engine - not rebuilt because it has like new compression but lots of new parts; fuel injectors, pump, hoses, wires, valve guides, all engine tin is correct, coil, heater boxes, muffler etc. etc.

New brakes, bearings.

Shifts and clutches smoothly. Not sure how many times the odometer has turned over so I guess once - so 113796 miles?

New Gislaved tires on freshly painted rims.

**All mechanics were checked or done by veteran VW expert!**

This car is a future show winner and although you may find a few things that are not perfect and you want to improve/change, they are all the fit and finish (and fun) items. For instance, I can give you the original Blaupunkt AM/FM pushbutton radio or you can create your own sound system.

I am also listing this locally and on CL so may end the bidding if it sells
