According to the Oxford Dictionary, an Epilogue is a section or speech at the end of a book or play that serves as a comment on, or a conclusion to what happened. The Epilogue Edition is a fitting name to represent the end of the line for such an iconic world car like the Beetle. This car is one of 900 made before the “original” Beetle's production was ceased. All epilogue Edition Beetles were convertibles that were finished in a triple black color scheme. Not necessarily a happy, bright color scheme for such an easily recognizable car but fitting as the end of production was looming. Although the car is triple black, and represents the end of the line for the “original” Beetle, this is an awesome collector Beetle that is ready to be enjoyed.
The exterior of the car is finished as it would have been from the factory, all the correct moldings, lights, and trim are there. The convertible top is in very nice condition
The condition of the body itself is very good - a few spots of peeling paint can be seen in our pictures on the bottom sides of the doors and on the lower edge of the engine cover. Other than those spots of paint imperfection, the body is solid and so are the pans.
The interior has a little bit of a higher class feel than most other Beetles thanks to wood grain trim on the dashboard. The wood grain trim brightens up the interior which features later style Beetle seats with built in headrests. The interior is in great condition throughout. All upholstery shows well, trim and switches are all in place, and the dashboard is in great condition.
At the rear of the car is a Fuel Injected 1600cc Flat-4 mated to a 4-speed manual. A nice stack of paperwork comes with this Beetle, documenting its service history. Maintenance receipts include regular maintenance items such as; spark plugs, brake maintenance, oil changes, and new tires. Receipts from the purchase of small trim pieces and accessories are also included and a receipt for Ziebart Rustproofing is included.
Despite the somewhat sad name of this Beetle's special edition name, this car is a great collector car that is well documented and in great condition. This Beetle doesn't have to be the Epilogue to your car collection, but could be a nice prelude. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
