1979 Volkswagen Bug












1979 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible

Why This Car Is Special

We have a sporty bright red 1979 Volkswagen Beetle convertible here at Skyway Classics that was the final year of a legend and considered by some collectors to be the best of the line.

Ours was recently restored and has new shining Orange/Red paint, a Hartz black convertible top, iconic VW power, and at an affordable price.

The Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made. The one we have for sale at Skyway Classics is fully restored. From top to bottom. If you want a like-new VW, this one is for you.

The VW reputation of quality comes from decades of knowing how to build these droptops with precision and strength.
Power comes from the VW’s sturdy 1600cc flat four dual port engine with Dual Carbs with chrome open element air cleaners,
Performance distributor and coil, backed by a Four-speed manual transmission, while sitting in a nice clean and detailed engine compartment.

So for those who want to drive their classics, this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage VW. This car is incredibly solid and the VW runs and drives great. It rides on performance aftermarket chrome/black wheels and performance tires and has a great sound coming out of the rear.


Beneath the Hartz black convertible top is a great black twin bucket seat interior with the matching door panels and rear seat and black carpets.

Volkswagen treated these last few Beetle convertibles as premium machines so it has extra features including wood grain on the dash, pushbutton stereo, factory gauge pod, black padded steering wheel, chrome stick shift, and just like the exterior, it’s clean, complete, and quite correct.


Our Orange/Red VW looks great with good body lines, great chrome and trim, and a professional repaint that makes it really stand out. Get this beauty in the sun and it lights up.

It has great chrome bumpers, chrome trim around the headlights, side mirrors, running boards, dual turn lights on the front fenders, black Hartz convertible top, and the usual side vent wings too.


It is not often you can find a 1979 Volkswagen Beetle convertible as nice as the Orange/Red beauty we have here at Skyway Classics and a great price too.

Come see it today. They are great cars that are a blast to drive, get thumbs up and admiration everywhere they go, and won’t break the bank at the gas pump.
