With its distinct white appearance, strong/trusty drivetrain, and overall sunny personality, this pristine 1977 Volkswagen Beetle Champagne Edition convertible is always up for fun. So not only is it a special edition drop-top, but also it's a car that's one of the most desirable anytime driving classics out there for the money.
America adopted the original VW as part of the counter-culture, but these first-ever Champagne Edition cars are a bit more about going upper-class in appearance. The professional re-application of the factory-correct Alpine White paint gives this one a nice shine. And the white vinyl folding roof is a nice touch of elegance. And because this car looks like it's ready for the country club's white party, the bumpers, sweeping side trim, and upgraded wheel package is like great jewelry added to the snowy presentation. It makes for a car worth showing off even before you tell them that this is number 820 out of only 1,000 made.
The Cameo White is just a shade different than the exterior white, and that makes for a distinct but coordinated look worthy of the Champagne Edition. There was a nice investment here in making sure everything looks quite nice. And there are well-done vintage details, like the champagne tan carpeting, to the wood-like trim of the dash. But the money invested in this one also added plenty of worthwhile upgrades. There's a cup holder center console, and while the radio has a classic look, it's really a modern AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth for upgraded driving music. And you just know that wood-rimmed sports steering wheel is going to feel terrific in your hands.
Power comes from the VW's sturdy 1600cc flat four. It's a carbureted unit, and the starter was replaced within the last year. So you have a larger and strong-running powerhouse that's ideal for a driver's classic. It's linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most out of the motor. As many VW fans already know, this is a Super Beetle. That means an improved steering box, bigger brakes, and a new MacPherson independent front suspension. So out on the road, this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW.
Complete with maintenance records, this is a vintage drop-top with a premium look and a limited edition pedigree. So to find an affordable example that's ready to be enjoyed right now is an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
