1978 Volkswagen Beetle Karmann Convertible
Registration No: DGH 873S
Chassis No: 1582067215
Engine No: A5605627
Estimate: £13,000 - £17,00

The VW Beetle has seduced many a first-time buyer, collector and classic car enthusiast. And for obvious reasons; the parts network is huge and inexpensive, the ability to convert the base model into many different variants was always available and the cost of the car itself presented a gateway into classic car ownership. In fact, Wilhelm Karmann first applied himself into converting his own Beetle into the four-seat convertible we all know and love today.

This wonderful Beetle Karmann convertible was imported into the UK in 1989 and is offered in the desirable European specification. Stored in a dehumidified heated garage for many years until 2012 at which time it was extensively restored and professionally converted to right hand drive. Also completed was a comprehensive repaint to the coachwork in an eye-catching Florida blue. It sits on a set of beautiful 15-inch Fuchs alloy wheels and comes complete with a brand new mohair hood. In the last 12 months it has had an extensive service costing over £1,800 and is supplied with a valid MoT test certificate, various sundry invoices and the UK V5C registration document. This is a very well presented example and we are sure it will be huge amounts of fun for the new custodian in the coming summer months.
