The biggest difference is the 74 has energy absorbing bumpers that the 73 is lacking.

The windshield on the super beetle (and all super beetles) is rounded and makes a little dash board. The regular beetles windshield is flat and has no dash.

how do u wire a new jvc raido into a 73 super beetle


super beetles have a little more rounded front end and the main difference is the super beetle has macpherson strut front suspension as oposed to the beam style bug suspension. the macpherson strut is okay for street only and be sure that all rubber bushings are good or else very shakey down the road. the super beetle is muchless desireable and holds less value super beetles have a little more rounded front end and the main difference is the super beetle has macpherson strut front suspension as oposed to the beam style bug suspension. the macpherson strut is okay for street only and be sure that all rubber bushings are good or else very shakey down the road. the super beetle is muchless desireable and holds less value



1973 super beetle comes with 1600 cc motor.


P165/80R15 is the standard size.


I bought a 73 super beetle, sport bug and it was aprox 1800.00



No, the hood will not fit. 1965 is pre-Super Beetle; 1973 is post Super Beetle. The 65 hood is going to be much more narrow and arched then a Super Beetle hood or anything past their early transitions to the Super beetle which started to transpire in June of 1971


Ours is under the back seat, driver's side


That should be the crankcase breather tube.


Under the back seat on the other side from the battery.


No. 1971 and 1972 Supers used different body parts than 1973 thru 1975 Supers.


Yes. An IRS Type 1 transmission is the same across the Type 1 line.


DOT 3 heavy duty works the best


For a 1973 Super Beetle the reservoir is located under the front hood on the drivers side. The two lines that exit the reservoir are for your dual master cylinder. One line fills the front and the other the rear brake lines.


Some of them are, but 1973 is the year VW changed to the curved windshield in the Supers so some of them are NOT.


there are a type 1 and a type 2. both the 70 and the 73 are a type 1.

i own a 1973 super beetle and when i bought it i had the same problem. we fixed it by replacing the speedometer cable on it. the cable runs from the front, driver-side tire and goes in to the back of the gauge it gets a little tough unless you have tiny hands but that fixed it for me.
