I have an odd ball inbetween 71 and 72 super beetle

The big issue with them is certain parts are regular beetle and certain parts are super, and it's inbetween the two on certain things.

The super beetle will ride better, I love the way mine rides and it cruises up to 50mph without much hammering on the gas and on the original non-rebuilt engine with 86,000 miles on it..

There is stuff that if it gets damaged on the super are a bitch to get, Defrost setup, front hood, and the damn dashboard... I have a dashboard that won't fit. A defroster that wont work cause it wasn't setup for a motor as it is off of a 71 regular beetle. The dashboard I bought doesn't actually work on a super even though it says it does.

The suspension of the super kicks ass...mine rides much smoother than a regular beetle..

I like mine and I bought it like it is for 500 cash because it had sat in a carport since 85... in 07, I only redid the brakes and greased everything else and changed all oils and all and it was on the road. I drive it more than 30 miles a day...
