Description for Volkswagen Beetle 1973

Vehicle Details

The 1973 model, with its curved windshield and full-sized dashboard, further modified the Super Beetle design.

This Volkswagen Super Beetle uses the same 1,600 cc four-cylinder engine found in earlier standard and Super Beetles sold in North America since 1971. The engine sits in the rear of the vehicle, leaving the front compartment free for cargo space. The engine provides a maximum of 5,500 rpm. Its transmission features a four-speed, manual gear box and a dry plate clutch. The 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle can reach a top speed of 90 mph. It gets approximately 25 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

The Volkswagen Super Beetle uses a MacPherson strut front suspension system, which is the major difference between the Super and standard Beetle lines. The new suspension system eliminates the dual parallel torsion beams used in standard Beetles, resulting in more trunk space in the Super Beetle line. It also allows the spare tire to lie horizontally in the trunk, instead of the upright position found in standard Beetle models. The Super Beetle also uses a full-sized dashboard compared with the flat dashboard included with standard Beetles. The sedan supplies four seats and two doors.

Volkswagen installed three-point safety belts and a collapsing steering wheel in the 1973 Super Beetle. The manufacturer also added a curved windshield to the Super Beetle line to comply with new U.S. safety regulations governing the distances between the windshield and passengers. The redesigned windshield sits further away from the passengers and provided room for a padded, full-sized dashboard.
