The coach builder Karmann in Osnabrück starts production of the Golf Convertible. Its sturdy roll bar and well-insulated watertight top sets new standards for safety and comfort. The customer can choose between two different engines, a 1.5-litre engine with 70 hp or a 1.6-litre GTI engine with 110 hp. The open Golf proves itself to be a worthy successor to the Beetle Convertible and it goes on to become Europe's best-selling convertible.
