Selling a 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible - rare "Epilogue" edition, only 900 made. Black paint/black interior/black top, with deluxe woodgrain Wolfsburg interior and rare dealer-installed A/C (the only way to get it in 1979.) Also, it still has the correct "sport" wheels that came on this edition.
I bought this car in February intending to restore for my son, but he has lost interest in it. It was purchased from the 2nd owner, who had owned it since 1981. She had in it storage for the last 5 years before I bought it. The odometer is working and shows just over 31k miles: Given the condition of the car, and various old registrations that came in the glovebox, I'm sure this represents the accurate mileage. Car includes the original title from 2nd owner (see pics), but Georgia doesn't issue titles for cars this old. Will issue bill of sale to buyer.
The car is in "original" condition - it's basically intact and a great candidate for restoration or spend a few bucks for a daily driver. It will need some typical beetle repairs:
- Vehicle has been in Georgia for 30+ years and is relatively rust-free. There is some rust around the windshield and lip of the hood, but pans & heater channels appear to be solid. (The back window still has original rustproofing sticker on it & I would imagine this helped a bit) Also, the window seals are perished, and the bottom of the passenger door is pretty rusted.
- The convertible top will need to be repaired or replaced. (Originial black tonneau cover is included with car.)
- All parts of the A/C are present, but not currently connected & I have no idea whether it works.
- The driver's seat cover is worn, but no tears. All other seats are good.
- Original dash has no cracks. Clock still works. No cracks in glass.
- Paint is original and has faded some over time. Paint cracked at hinges on driver's side door.
- Engine was running when I parked it, but smelled of gas. (I believe one of the gas lines is leaking and will need to be replaced.) For this reason, the car will need to be towed.
This car is a great opportunity for the right person, and this model sells for top dollar when restored. I'm listing it at NO RESERVE, so happy bidding.... and feel free to ask me any questions.

Volkswagen still has its eyes set on becoming the top global automaker by 2018, and to get there, it's apparently going to need more boots on the ground. Automotive News Europe is reporting that VW is looking to increase its staff by 50,000 over the next five years - an increase of nine percent - which does not include an increase in its US dealer network.

According to the report, a majority of the growth will come from China where the automaker is also looking to double its production capacity in the same time frame. The Volkswagen Group is already expected to rival General Motors for the top sales spot in China this year, and such a rapid expansion in the region could make a good springboard for sales increases in other countries.
On the eve of the Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen chief executive Martin Winterkorn has confirmed the imminent arrival of a new crossover. The model, previewed at the same show last year by the CrossBlue concept pictured here, will be unique to the North American market when it arrives here in 2016. The new three-row, seven-seat crossover is part of an ambitious expansion plan on the part of Volkswagen and Audi in North America, where the two brands aim to sell a million vehicles by 2018.

That's a mighty big increase over the 600,000 vehicles which the Volkswagen Group sold here last year, but it's moving in the right direction: That number is already a 100-percent increase of what it sold here just five years ago. At that rate, VW should have little trouble meeting its goals, particularly with the arrival of the new crossover and the introduction of Golf production at its assembly plant in Puebla, Mexico. Read the full statement below for more.
We've reached a new step in the ongoing drama at Volkswagen's factory in Chattanooga, TN. The United Auto Workers recently dropped its opposition to the union vote and agreed that it wouldn't hold another ballot for at least a year. Now, the new question becomes where VW is going to build its forthcoming midsize SUV.
Earlier, it had been considered all but certain that the SUV, likely a production version of the CrossBlue concept (pictured above), would be built in Tennessee. However, it seems the Chattanooga factory might have competition to produce it. In emails obtained by The Detroit News, VW's lawyer wrote to the Tennessee economic development department in January saying, "While we understand there are some 'non-deal' issues that are causing a delay in the TN solution, VW has been successful in reaching agreement on terms at the alternative locations."
As previously reported, the state of Tennessee allegedly offered VW about $300 million in incentives to build the vehicle there and create an estimated 1,350 jobs, but it later rescinded the deal. Newly leaked documents from NewsChannel 5 (WTVF-TV) in Nashville allegedly show just how close that offer was to being completed. It appears that VW actually sent the government the first draft of a memorandum of understanding agreeing to the incentives, but the state removed the offer in late January.
