The beloved Beetle convertible has endured the test of time and millions of these have been produced over the past 60+ years. Peoples Car, Love Bug, Herbie, Slug Bug, Type 1, and many other names have been used to describe or refer to this iconic model throughout the world. The VW Beetle has been a recognizable car no matter where you are and what year the car is, it is always very easy to notice.

This stunning 1979 Volkswagen Beetle in the very rare color of River Blue Metallic is absolutely stunning in person and a joy to drive. Vehicle was sold new out of Commonwealth Motors LTD in Santa Ana California and remained in California until 2020. The car is very impressive inside and out and shows that it has been cared for and enjoyed by the previous 3 owners. Vehicle was serviced and highly documented by the previous owners and there is a large file of service records that highlight everything from basic maintenance to a full engine rebuild in 1995. Further highlights are a window out two stage repaint in 1995 to the correct specs of factory color.

These lovable Beetles are always a hit at any car show and having the final year of production in your possession is substantial. The final year of any production car always brings a premium. Finding a Beetle like this that is so well documented and in such amazing shape is always a challenge. Then follow that up with a very unique and rare color and you have instant collectible status. Vehicle runs very well, all lights were working along with the horn, turn signals, wipers, heater fan, stereo and rear defrost. Vehicle comes with a newer Kenwood stereo along with new Kenwood speakers. Two sets of keys, clean Michigan title, owner's manual, service records, Stiftung Auto Museum Volkswagen certificate and the original MSRP are all accompanied with the sale of this fine people's car.
