The Volkswagen Beetle was built to be 'the peoples car'. It was economical, durable, and reliable. Many service men who were returning back to the states brought this car back with them. Soon, the little Volkswagen Beetle had built a reputation for itself in the United States as being a very practical car. The placement of the air-cooled engine meant it was capable of traveling in the winter weather due to most of the weight being over the rear driving wheels. More than 17 million examples were imported into the United States from Germany during during its 41 years import lifespan. During that time, the VW Bug experienced only minor changes both mechnically and aesthetically.

The 1977 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible finished in white with a matching interior was offered for sale at the 2006 Worldwide Group Auction held on Hilton Head Island where it was expected to fetch $20,000-$30,000. It is equipped with a four-speed manual gearbox, drum brakes, and a 1585 cc engine that produces just under 50 horsepower. At the conclusion of the auction, the vehicle was left unsold.
