One of the most popular automobiles ever produced, Volkswagen's iconic Type 1 Beetle sold in the millions, and one of the best-loved was the Cabriolet, such as this 1970 Volkswagen Cabriolet, built by Karmann of Osnabruck, which also built the svelte little Ghia-styled coupe. The Karmann cabriolet first appeared in 1949 and this quite popular model remained in production until 1980, with almost 332,000 units manufactured. With its fully-padded "baby-buggy" folding fabric top, Karmann .....
Cabriolets allowed four occupants reasonably comfortable seating while soaking up the sun's rays. Cabriolets were more than simply Beetle sedans with their roof removed; Karmann heavily reinforced and strengthened the sills and lower cowling, and added a transverse brace to the floor pan. Cabriolets were generally better-finished than their coupe brethren, including such niceties as twin back-seat ashtrays, a vanity mirror on the passenger-side sun visor and alloy stone guards on the rear fenders.
This classic 1970VW Beetle Cabriolet not only looks great, but it runs and drives very nicely. Finished in one of the prettiest colors ever available on a classic Beetle, Clementine Orange, this car is as fun to drive as it looks. The interior is in great shape with seat belts front and rear so you can drive a full car of smiling kids or adults safely and comfortably. Underneath, the car is solid and the floor-pan in rust-free. There is also an upgraded radio that works, and all the tail lights and headlights work as they should. This car is great on gas and it's easy to park.
