After successfully presenting it at VW in Wolfsburg the Beetle Cabriolet began production in 1949 by Karmann in Osnabrück. The last of 331,847 cabriolets came off the production line on the 10th January 1980.

Nice looking car. My first car was a Beetle, Not a 1303 though, they were a little bigger than the 1200 and 1300’s

VW say they may revive the name at a future point, no doubt be electric by then and lost all of its character from the original.
