Volkswagen Beetle 1303 S 1972.
In 1971, a new Beetle model featuring MacPherson strut front suspension and a redesigned front end was launched alongside the “standard” Beetle, which continued in production. Officially known (and marketed in Europe) as the VW 1302 from 1971 to 1972, and VW 1303 from 1973 onwards, but commonly called Super Beetle, the new stretched nose design replaced the dual parallel torsion bar beams which had compromised trunk space and relocated the spare tire from a near vertical to a low horizontal position. The redesign resulted in a tighter turning radius despite a 20 mm longer wheelbase, and a doubling of the front compartment’s cargo volume.
This is an interesting Beetle finished in mint green with black interior. It seems it has been sat for a while and so is in need of some restoration. Comes with some bills and old MOTs. Tax exempt.
