The 1300cc and, in particular, the 1500cc from 1966 and ’67 respectively were a big step on from the flaccid 1200cc in terms of overall driveability. The switch from torsion bars to McPherson struts initially on the flat windscreen 1302 in 1971 also made a big difference, as did the arrival of the Super Beetle with its rounded screen and curvy plastic dash two years later. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Volkswagen repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Volkswagen Beetle repair manual is the ideal partner when you’re servicing or repairing your car.
