Asked by Dec 31, 2013 at 03:19 PM about the 1973 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: General

Supposed 73 super beetle for sale near me...good price but has totally flat windshield like my older beetles.  
As there were no VIN's for beetles prior to 1981 can't verify.  Is there any other way to ID year.  Nothing on
door or door post either.

73 standard Beetles had flat windshields. Super Beetles had curved.They made both.

did get it. Must be standard. Runs like a dream at 70 mph, Paint work needed a bit but no dings or dents. Went from $3000 down to $2500 and I am happy with price. Have had 59, 63, 67 and 71 Beetles and kind of miss them. Hopefully you can tell me where to get manuals and maybe parts. Has ignition key, but not door keys. An y help would be appreciated. Yep, thats my 1950 Willys Wagon in picture. Did all that myself, but am now 73 so slowing down.
