Top of the line in 79, the last year for the German built VW Beetle convertible. A desireable collectors piece as well as being a wonderful fun car to drive. This car was sold new right here in nearby Anaheim California and it is still owned by it's original owner.
The Traction-Lok differential employs a multiple disc plate to control differential action. The side gear mounting distance is powered by 9 shims; 4 steel, 4 friction, and one variant plate steel on one side, friction material on the other. Ones shims are stacked on the clutch hub and along with 4 ear plates are housed in the differential cover. Also barbed in the differential case, between the side gears, is a one-piece pre-load mounting and block and four calibrated pre-load springs, which hinder an initial force to the clutch pack.
It has always been garaged and well cared for and as you can see it looks fantastic. Never wrecked, never rusted, well maintained The car has been repainted once on the exterior only but you would swear it's original paint when you see it.
The top is excellent as is the interior and well Its a very nice example.
Super straight body, nice bright chrome, everything fits and functions properly. Very good runner and driver.
You have to make sure you know what speed you have your cars tuned to. Me, I have all of my cars on not 4. So in HEX all I looked for was 04 04 04 then came them to 10 10 A whole lot of looking through code though lol.
Nice straight front end, excellent hood fit, etc. Original trunk liner still holding up.
In fact, we named it our Commitment Car of the Year when new. Find New Cars for Sale.
Original paper paint code tag Original jack Excellent apron, no signs of damage or repairs. Under the spare is super solid and proper Look at the reflection down the sides The Karmann badge Top down and ready for fun in the sun!
Very stock and proper drivetrain. Runs and drives excellent.
Engine is clean underneath Extremely solid chassis, no rust, no repairs. All virgin German metal! Fender wells are even nice and solid!
Back on the shiny side things look even nicer!
