A great way to start or add to a classic car collection has landed at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. a 1978 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible. By 1978. droptops were the only Beetle models that were still in production.

Dressed in a Pearl White exterior with a black folding top. this car looks fantastic. The paint is overall very good order. with just some slight blemishes visible on the front passenger fender near the fuel filler door. The windows are clear and in one piece. including the rear glass panel in the convertible top. which is equipped with a rear defroster grid. The vehicle's lights. including the taillights with amber turn signals are in overall very good order except for the passenger parking light. which shows some moisture within.

This Bug rolls on four radial tires surrounding vented steel wheels topped with full moon VW wheel covers. There are minor blemishes on the driver's side front wheel cover. All of this bug's body panels are straight and solid and the roof looks fantastic. The engine bay is very tidy and its bumpers look great.

Under that hood is a 1600cc flat inline four-cylinder engine with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection. backed by a four-speed manual transmission.

Inside. the black front buckets and rear bench seats look fantastic and have no rips or tears. The matching carpet is in very good order. as is the black instrument panel with its VDO gauges and burled elm-grain trim that lends some warmth. The factory four-speed steering wheel is in very good order. as are the inner door panels with map pockets and the mirror glass. Rounding out the extra clean interior is a JVC AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.

The convertible was now based on the 1302 body. In North America. the 1302 was marketed as the Super Beetle and came only with the L Package and 1600 cc engine. While it lacked the front disc brakes that normally accompanied the larger motor. it was fitted with brake drums that were slightly larger than the standard Beetle.

1973 models featured significantly enlarged "elephant foot" taillamps mounted in reshaped rear fenders. In the engine bay. the oil-bath air cleaner gave way to a dry element filter. and the generator was replaced with an alternator. The 1302/Super became the 1303 with a new taller wrap-around windscreen. The changes to the cowl and windshield resulted in slight redesign of the front hood. The instrument panel. formerly shared with the standard Beetle. was all-new and incorporated a raised speedometer pod. rocker-style switches and side-window defrosters. In 1975. the "Volkswagen" script on the engine lid of all North American Beetles was replaced with a "Fuel Injection" badge.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis. Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows
84. 57 miles. It is sold as is. where is. on a clean and clear. mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!

MotoExotica. com is a licensed bonded dealer through the state of Missouri. We have been in business since 1988 selling high end. special interest. pre-owned and exotic vehicles.

With the advent of the Internet and EBay Motors. we have found an avenue that allows us to sell cars we normally purchased for ourselves. We have owned just about every exotic and luxury car known to man; such as ISO Grifo to Jaguar XKE. Lamborghini Countach and Rolls Royce.

In the past. these cars were sold primarily through Hemmings Motor News and through word of mouth. We would normally keep a car and enjoy it personally for 6 – 18 months. However. with listing cars on EBay Motors. our turnover has tremendously increased. Now. the average time we hold a car is 4 – 6 weeks!

With the increase in turnover has come the increased need of fine automobiles. We are constantly looking for exceptional cars and travel the country coast to coast in search of the rare and unusual. We find our cars through individuals like yourselves as well as classic car and dealers auctions. We do not purchase vehicles that we would not be proud to own ourselves.

For a quote on shipping anywhere in the world. please feel free to email us at sales@Motoexotica. com or call 636-600-4600.
