This 1303 Beetle Cabriolet, offered is one of the last of its kind. This " Triple Black " 1303 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet is a one of only 900 units of the "Epilog " special series built, the last special edition of the legendary Beetle Cabriolet in 1980 was sold by Volkswagen. This Triple Black Edition was special in that it was the only 1303 Beetle convertible that was kept in complete black and is therefore a reference to the very first Beetle convertibles in the 40s, as they were all black. Thus, this rare Cabriolet certainly has a good appreciation potential , since it was built only in the limited "Epilogue" edition.

This convertible is very original; unwelded and virtually rustproof without corrosion, it has spent almost its entire life in dry California. For a few years now, it has been in collectors hands here in Germany and was only being used in the summer. The paint is original with some patina, the interior is also original.

There are numerous documents and a Classic Data report.

The car is approved with H-Certification.
