Volkswagen Super Beetle(1971 to 1979)

One of the most notable variants of the Type 1 Volkswagen Beetle is the Super Beetle. Introduced in 1971, the Super Beetle was available as a hardtop (1971-1975), and a convertible (1971-1979). For ’71 and ’72, Super Beetles consisted of an improved MacPherson Strut suspension setup in the front, and a slightly lengthened body and frame. Starting in 1973, a curved windshield and flatter profile roof were implemented to help differentiate the model from the standard Beetle. While hardtop Beetles between ’71 and ’75 were available as Super Beetles or standard models, all convertible Beetles made between 1971 and 1979 were exclusively sold as Super Beetles, including some that were sold as 1980 models. The easiest ways to spot a Super Beetle are to check for a flat spare tire, or to look for the MacPherson Strut front suspension.
