1969 Volkswagen Beetle

Minor and fairly invisible changes were made to the Volkswagen Beetle for 1969. The ignition lock included a steering wheel lock, and the rear-view mirror got a day/night adjustable feature. Double-jointed rear axles were included on all U.S. models. The warning lights on the instrument panel received identifying letters or symbols, and late in the year the speedometer received a 1/10th of a mile indicator.

Little else changed for the '69 Beetle. Power was provided by a 1500cc air-cooled, rear-mounted engine that produced 53 horsepower. A four-speed manual transmission and telescopic shock absorbers were also part of the package.

Standard features included swiveling sun visors, coat hooks, assist straps, an automatic windshield washer, an overhead light, folding rear seats, and luggage space under the front hood and in a three-foot carpeted compartment behind the rear seats. A convertible top was optional.
