Selling a 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible - rare "Epilogue" edition, only 900 made. Black paint/black interior/black top, with deluxe woodgrain Wolfsburg interior and rare dealer-installed A/C (the only way to get it in 1979.) Also, it still has the correct "sport" wheels that came on this edition.

I bought this car in February intending to restore for my son, but he has lost interest in it. It was purchased from the 2nd owner, who had owned it since 1981. She had in it storage for the last 5 years before I bought it. The odometer is working and shows just over 31k miles: Given the condition of the car, and various old registrations that came in the glovebox, I'm sure this represents the accurate mileage. Car includes the original title from 2nd owner (see pics), but Georgia doesn't issue titles for cars this old. Will issue bill of sale to buyer.

The car is in "original" condition - it's basically intact and a great candidate for restoration or spend a few bucks for a daily driver. It will need some typical beetle repairs:

  • Vehicle has been in Georgia for 30+ years and is relatively rust-free. There is some rust around the windshield and lip of the hood, but pans & heater channels appear to be solid. (The back window still has original rustproofing sticker on it & I would imagine this helped a bit) Also, the window seals are perished, and the bottom of the passenger door is pretty rusted.
  • The convertible top will need to be repaired or replaced. (Originial black tonneau cover is included with car.)
  • All parts of the A/C are present, but not currently connected & I have no idea whether it works.
  • The driver's seat cover is worn, but no tears. All other seats are good.
  • Original dash has no cracks. Clock still works. No cracks in glass.
  • Paint is original and has faded some over time. Paint cracked at hinges on driver's side door.
  • Engine was running when I parked it, but smelled of gas. (I believe one of the gas lines is leaking and will need to be replaced.) For this reason, the car will need to be towed.

This car is a great opportunity for the right person, and this model sells for top dollar when restored. I'm listing it at NO RESERVE, so happy bidding.... and feel free to ask me any questions.

VW investigating Golf water leak discovered by car magazine

Sat, 07 Sep 2013 17:02:00 EST

Volkswagen is in a spat with German magazine Auto Bild over claims that its new, seventh-generation Golf may already need a recall. The German weekly reports that new Golfs can leak water into front-passenger footwells due to a faulty drainage tube in their air conditioning systems.
And while the fix itself doesn't sound too terrible, because Volkswagen bases so many cars off the same platform as the Golf, Auto Bild is claiming that 300,000 models could be affected, including the Audi A3 and Seat Leon. That's a very bold claim. For its part, VW is vehemently denying that number, according to Reuters, saying it's aware of the problem and claiming only 46 Golfs need fixing. In addition, it denies that any Audi or Seat models are affected by the issue.
Either way, regardless of how pervasive this leak issue is, North American buyers should rest easy knowing that the problems ought to get fixed by the time the Mk VII Golf finaly reaches our dealerships.

VW readying CC Shooting Brake?

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 10:58:00 EST

This was bound to happen. Volkswagen's relentless drive for big volume has the brand mining seemingly every niche it can find for additional sales worldwide. And with its CLS Shooting Brake, fellow countryman Mercedes-Benz has already shown that a wagon based off of a "four-door coupe" can look dead sexy and command extra dollars. So it follows that the Volkswagen CC (whose existence is all but directly attributable to the success of the original CLS sedan) will also get a load-lugging variant. That's according to the UK's Autocar, which notes that the five-door will come in the CC's next generation.
According to the report, the next CC will be available in front and all-wheel drive variants with the usual assortment of gas and diesel four-cylinders found in the Wolfsburg empire, with the possibility of a gas plug-in hybrid model, too. The rakish estate will ride atop VW's MQB architecture, a shorter variant of which is also found underneath the new Golf. The scalable chassis is set to spread like kudzu throughout the company's lineup, but the CC probably won't happen until after the launch of the next European-market Passat in 2015.
Will we get it in North America? Hard to say. Volkswagen sells the standard CC saloon here, but not in particularly large numbers, and when the company moved to a North American-specific Passat, it dumped the wagon variant. The traditional VW estate apparently continues to pick up sales momentum abroad, however, making the CC Shooting Brake a seemingly natural fit for buyers who still want the utility of a two-box form but can afford to sacrifice a bit of cargo room in the name of style.
