Lot #152 - Completely unrestored original car with 6,900 original miles. Mileage not indicated on the title. 1979 was the final year for the famous Super Beetle with production ending in Germany early January 1980. This particular car has a build date of December 1979, making it one of the last Super Beetles made. It has been meticulously maintained throughout its life. In its unrestored state, the Bug's paint is nearly flawless. The 100% original interior shows only very minor wear and still contains the original factory installed BlauPunk cassette radio. The 1585cc, 48hp air-cooled motor runs as smooth as it did when it built 36 years ago. The front compartment contains all original cardboard and retains all original warning stickers. With the low mileage, this car drives as it did when it was new. The highly desirable triple white car (white paint, top, and interior) is very unique. 4-speed manual transmission.
