1977 Super Beetle Convertible   Price: $14000 USD
Two owner car. Price negotiable. 94,000 original miles, 3000 miles since complete engine and transmission rebuild. Mechanically perfect. More pictures and videos available upon request.

History: Car originally from upper New York state. I bought it in 2005 and I am the second owner. Registered in Quebec Canada, passed full safety inspection. I have original bill of sale, and receipts for all repairs and parts I have purchased.

Body and Interior: Car parked in heated garage since new, never winter driven. Rust free, all original high-quality German body panels (floors, rockers, fenders, doors, etc.). Most of the paint is original and in good condition. I discovered after buying the car that the driver door had been repainted. Door is original so must have been cosmetic damage. Original owner had passed away, so I had no way to get more details on repair. Interior and vinyl top fully restored, in like new condition. Dash is original and like new, all gauges, lights and switches work. VDO oil pressure and oil temperature gauges added. Porsche Boxster front seats with heat and power and matching cover for stock back seat. Stock steering wheel covered in leather. CSP high quality German quick shifter.

Mechanical Condition: 94,000 original miles, 3000 miles since engine and transmission rebuild. Over the years I have inspected, rebuilt or replaced every component on the car. Front strut suspension rebuilt with urethane bushings, European lower height front springs, rear has sway bar. Front disk and rear drum brakes like new, master cylinder replaced in 2016. Brand new tires (165/80R/15 front, 195/65R/15 rear) with like new reproduction Fuchs wheels. Engine and stock geared transmission rebuilt in 2018. Engine rebuilt by F&F Fabrication in Montreal using EMPI HD aluminum case (original case comes with the car in case you want it to build a numbers matching engine), 88mm thick wall pistons, 74mm stroker crank, Aircooled.Net L3 performance heads, 8.2 compression, lightened flywheel, full flow oil system. Displacement now 1800cc for approximately 110 HP and 100 ft/lb. (estimate based on similar configurations, engine not on dyno since rebuild). Megasquirt II programmable fuel and spark control kit from The Dub Shop in Washington, USA with VW air valve controlling cold start and warmup. Megasquirt is user friendly and allows you to adjust fuel and ignition settings using any laptop. I will provide software and setting needed to configure your laptop if you want to do your own tuning. Fuel and spark tables mapped by Dyno Doc in Montreal. Engine has been built and tuned for smooth reliable daily driving but with better performance than the stock 50HP. If you want to convert the engine to mechanical spark and carburetors this can be easily done, EMPI case is set up to accept a distributor. I will include the original Bosch distributor and many extra parts including two Bosch throttle bodies, suspension parts, VW tools. Vintage Speed stainless exhaust with like new stock heater boxes.

Last road trip of 2018 season was throughout New York state so I can guarantee the car is in perfect mechanical condition and ready to be driven home by the new owner. Serious inquiries only please. Email me to arrange for inspection and test drive. I have listed car on The Samba and Autotrader.ca so I will accept offers in US or Canadian dollars. Thanks.
