Description for Volkswagen Beetle-New 1971

Cruisin Classics is proud to introduce a worldwide icon in the form of a 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle Convertible. This apropriately painted Metallic Purple Beetle with white interior has been completely restored. In simple terms...the restoration is superb. The NEW, White convertible top with boot is easy to maneuver, has a glass window in the back AND looks outstanding. Volkswagens have quite a history and it should not be overlooked if you are considering one for yourself. A brief tid-bit...Part of Volkswagen's master plan was to bring the handling and ride of the Beetle up to North American standards with improved front suspension and updated rear trailing arms. MacPherson strut-coil springs were coupled with transverse control arms and a better turning radius was one of the results. This strut front suspension also offered precise steering and a comfortable ride. This type of independent front suspension was used by a number of manufacturers at the time and continues to be used widely to this day. The new suspension was lighter than the traditional torsion-beam design, the inner fenders were now heavier and the anti-roll bar was made much larger. The chassis frame head had to be substantially modified and made flatter to accommodate the new suspension changes. This suspension setup was similar to that used on the Type 4 Volkswagen. In the rear, double-jointed half shafts were introduced. These were formerly only available on the Beetle with the semiautomatic transmission. The 1302 would now handle more like a Ford than a Beetle. The first Super Beetle sedan rolled off the assembly line on August 11, 1970 for the 1971 model year, during which some 700,000 were manufactured at Volkswagen plants in Wolfsburg and Emden. The 1302 sold surprisingly well despite Volkswagen enthusiasts giving it mixed reviews with comments like ugly, swollen, bulging and pregnant. Having Volkswagen's excellent reputation for quality and value dating back to the 1950s didn't hurt sales either.This particular VW came with a 1600cc, 4 cylinder engine that was paired with a manual 4-speed transmission. Inside you will find a clean look and feel. White bucket seats with purple accents take the interior to the next level.
