1977 VW Beetle
  1977 marked the last year the standard VW Beetle was exported to the United States.  This '77 is as decked out as they get, with a factory sliding sunroof, fuel injection, bumper over-riders, 'sport' style alloy wheels, and dealer installed Air Conditioning.  This beetle is one of a few (reportedly 7) originally purchased by "Big" Billy Barrett of the Big Billy Barrett Dealerships in Texas and stored indoors since it was brand new.  Supposedly these cars were used for shows, display, etc. until the 90's when the VW dealership became a Jeep dealership.  Late in 2003, the Big Billy Barrett dealerships were sold and the last few cars he had stored in a warehouse for years were sold to long term employees of his dealerships.  I purchased the car from one of those employees.  It is brand new in every way, and completely original.  At the time of my purchase the car only has 515 original miles.  Click here to go back.
