Classics Revealed: The Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) An Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is a
rare car indeed. Well at least rare when it comes to the classic VW Beetle.
While they build over 300,000 of first generation Beetle convertibles, they
built over 21 million of the same basic car but with a hard top. Recently
Volkswagen rolled out the 3rd generation of the iconic Beetle at the LA
Auto Show but at the same time they brought some of the original
convertibles to California. In the exclusive TFLcar video we drive an
original 1979 1500 cc fuel injected model that had only 250 miles on the
clock when we took the wheel. In fact this museum car from Germany is a
time machine straight from the factory floor.

The is a beautiful bright red classic 1978 red convertible Volkswagen

Portland, Ore when the rain finally stopped. My friend Ethan and I had a
great time shooting this video and it's fun to watch!
You may remember me from my old 1958 VW Safari Bus discovery adventure road
trip video series. To date I have restored over 500 of these air cooled
Volkwagens... and still counting. Please feel free to contact me anytime

1979 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible STK 116-ATL.mpg
While some cars are advertised as low miles, this pristine 1979 Volkswagen
Beetle Convertible gives a whole new meaning to the phrase. You want low
miles? How about only 3,772 actual miles? Yes, you read it correctly,
3,772 miles! This 2 owner convertible Beetle was sold new right here in
Altanta at Jim Ellis Volkswagen in 1979. It drives as if it just came off
the assembly line and with the air cooled 4cyl. Bosch L-Jetronic Fuel
Injected 1.6L Dual-Port Boxer engine, it still purrs like a kitten.
1979 was the last model year for the convertible to be offered by VW and
with so few miles on this classic beetle, it needs to be either in a museum
or a collection somewhere. The original Silver paint still looks amazing
and the black vinyl interior is still in fantastic shape and shows that
it's spent its entire life kept in a garage. Sporting a manual top that
boasts the original white headliner and visors, an AM/FM radio, chrome
antenna and a wood shift knob, this gorgeous Beetle is looking for a new
home. The car comes with complete documentation to verify the mileage as
well as the original window sticker, owner's manuals, and even the original
warranty card showing the name and address of the first owner. If you want
one of the nicest and lowest mileage VW convertibles in the world we've got
it right here! Tons of documentation on this one! Call us today!

The new VW Beetle is perfect for those seeking a retro cool soft top whilst
still enjoying a certain degree of practicality and everyday comfort. The
Coupe was introduced in 2012, with the cabriolet joining the range in 2013.
There's plenty of different specs to suit all tastes and budgets, but
thankfully this one that we are in today has head turning looks for the
right reasons and has managed to impress us at CarBuyer.
And that's because it really does look the part with its non threatening
smiley face and distinctive bulbous wheel arches. The small spoiler on the
rear plays up to its cheeky and playful side, too.
But first and foremost we are interested in its practical side. Despite not
having a huge amount of space -- which is to be expected from a car like
this -- the folding roof doesn't affect bootspace in any way thanks to the
fact it folds on the outside of the boot. Thanks to this, you will always
get this much room [point], no matter where the roof is.
And although quite cramped, these seats are brilliant for occasional use --
as opposed to having none at all.
The first thing I noticed when I got in this car was the combination of
tones, there's some tasteful shiny painted, colour coded, trim here, soft
touch materials, which enhance the overall quality and the retro theme we
saw on the outside is very much present in here too. There are six
equipment levels available however the mid-level Design provides everything
you really need including air-conditioning and DAB radio, while the options
list includes a touchscreen sat-nav and a upgraded Fender sound system. The
50s, 60s and 70s versions are a bit more expensive, but if you want retro
flair, those are the cars for you. Anyway, enough tech, let's get this roof
It can be operated of speeds up to 31mph so you can put the roof up and
down as much as the weather fluctuates on your journey.
Bringing me on to my next point, it isn't noticeably noisier to travel in
than the coupe thanks to the multi layered fabric hood that provides plenty
of sound insulation.
Bringing me on to my next point, there is hardly any wind buffeting with
the roof down, as long as you have installed the easy-to-fit wind deflector
thus allowing me to talk to you about how economical this car is.
As expected there are a number of different petrol and diesel engines to
choose from. However the most economical is the 1.6 Bluemotion Diesel
returning a claimed 62.8 miles to the gallon and emitting just 118g/km of
CO2. All can be teamed up with a manual or Automatic DSG gearbox, apart
from the one that we're in today - the 1.4 twincharged engine only comes in
manual and that returns 41.5 miles to the gallon and certainly has enough
pace to complement the comfortable ride.
And that does bring me on to the Beetle's downsides. While it drives much
better than the outgoing model, mainly due to the fact that it shares its
platform with the previous generation Golf and is just as much fun as the
Coupe due to extra bracing, it isn't quite as much fun as the practicality
smaller MINI Convertible. The biggest sour grape in the Beetle fruit bowl
though is the price. It's £2,000 more expensive than the MINI, and that's
quite a lot!
Well that pretty much sums up the new Beetle Convertible, it's an easy to
live with retro inspired cool soft top that turns heads for all the right
