1979 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE

1979 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE

This car was owned by an Air Force Chaplin who purchased the car when stationed in Nellis, NV and was garaged & adult driven since purchased in 2005.

Paint was stripped to bare metal and repainted at experienced VW Air-cooled restoration shop and painted the original color, Mars Red.

All new rubber seals and gaskets, new windshield, new top and headliner.

The car use has been limited to nice sunny days and will provide many days of fun in the sun driving.

MODEL HISTORY

The Volkswagen Beetle—officially the Volkswagen Type 1, informally in German the Käfer (literally “beetle”), in parts of the English-speaking world the Bug, and known by many other nicknames in other languages—is a two-door, rear-engine economy car, intended for five passengers, that was manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003.

Lead engineer Ferdinand Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalise the design.

The influence on Porsche’s design of other contemporary cars, such as the Tatra V570, and the work of Josef Ganz remains a subject of dispute.

The result was the first Volkswagen, and one of the first rear-engined cars since the Brass Era.

With 21,529,464 produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made. [WIKIPEDIA]
