Up for sale in our Houston showroom is this 1978 Volkswagen Super Beetle convertible. There were two Beetles for the first time in 1971, the familiar standard Beetle and a new, larger version, The Super Beetle. The new, larger Beetle was sold as the 1302/1302 S, offering nearly 43% more luggage capacity, up from 140 liters in front to 260L. The convertible was now based on the 1302 body. In North America, the 1302 was marketed as the Super Beetle and came only with the L Package and 1600 cc engine. This Super Beetle has a nice white paint job that was completed 5 years ago and shows very well. The interior is in excellent condition & comfortable. The car is powered by its original 1600 cc 4-cylinder engine and is paired to a 4-speed manual transmission that shifts smoothly. The car sits on some cool new EMPI aluminum wheels and wrapped in new tires as well. The convertible top was also replaced approx.. 5 years ago, and it is in terrific condition as well. The owner has recently replaced the old carburetor with a new one. As well as new spark plugs & wires, a CD player with new speakers, new brakes, & a new starter. This is a very cool & fun car that will bring any new owner many years of enjoyment. Everyone loves a VW beetle! Pile your friends into this nice classic and hit the road to your next hang out session with friends! For more information on this 1978 Volkswagen Super Beetle.
