1958 Volkswagen Beetle Overview

Volkswagen provided drivers of its 1958 Beetle with a better viewing experience by enlarging both the front windshield and the back window. This year's model, in fact, was distinguished by is new squarish back window, as opposed to the oval back windows in previous models. The '58 Beetle also received an updated instrument panel with a larger glovebox, a redesigned steering wheel, and a flat accelerator pedal in place of a roller type pedal.

The '58 convertible Beetle was available in a range of colors, including black, white, blue, red, silver, and tan, according to VW literature of the era.

As in previous years, the '58 Beetle came with a four-cylinder, four-stroke air-cooled engine that generated 36 horsepower. It was mounted in the rear, so that its weight provided traction to the rear wheels. A four-speed transmission, independent front suspension and telescopic shock absorbers were also part of the Beetle package.

the 1960's beetle was a 1500 cc with a 4 speed gearbox and the whole lot was mounted in the boot.
