  • The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally designed as a means of transportation for the German masses the same way Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “People’s Car” had to meet four requirements laid out by the German Government; to be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his staff tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” translated as the “Strength through Joy Car.” After WWII, the British controlled Volkswagen Factory was rebuilt and the car slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal in the traditional large car market of the United States eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in Volkswagen producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported VW’s caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change that the American Public had been smitten by the “Bug.” While the Beetle was produced in its original air-cooled form in Mexico until 2003, 1977 would see the last Beetle sedans roll off the assembly lines in Germany. For 1978 and 1979 the only German-built Beetle model available was the Super Beetle Convertible by Karmann. As German Beetle production would end in 1979, the last generation of Beetle’s are highly sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts around the globe, especially in original German specification.

    The 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible featured here is finished in stunning Alpine White with a gorgeous white interior and matching convertible top. This magnificent Super Beetle Convertible has been meticulously preserved and has only been driven 1,058 miles from new. Accompanying this investment-grade Volkswagen is its original owner’s manual, warranty and maintenance booklet, original window sticker, brochures and more. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the most original, low-mile Super Beetle Convertibles on the market today to the true collector, investor or enthusiast who aspires to own one the most correct Beetle Convertibles from the last year of German production. A 1979 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible with 700 miles sold for $66,000 at a 2015 Gooding & Co Auction confirming the value of this low mileage Beetle. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
