Airbags For A 1970 VW BUG?

Asked by Nov 18, 2011 at 12:03 AM about the 1970 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Car Customization

I am possibly getting a 1970 VW Bug as my first car. I am 15 years old and my dad
and I wanted to fix one up. The only thing keeping him from doing so was the fact
that the safety is very poor. Is there any way that I could install a steering wheel with
a built in airbag? Along with an airbag for the passenger. Thanks so much.

Go buy a used R-Line Beetle. Safe and fast. 2014 and 2015 great years. I also have a 1965. It will never be as safe as a modern car. However it is super cool and fun to drive!

    Does the 1970 VW Bug get any warmth into the cab enough to keep the windows defrosted and the driver comfortable enough to drive? I live in Washington State where it gets to 20 degrees.
