I have a 1973 VW super bug with a flat windshield is this common?
A 1973 Beetle with a flat windshield is a standard Beetle, not a Super. 1971 and 1972 Super Beetles had flat windshields and are distinguished by the MacPherson strut front suspension instead of the torsion bart suspension of the standard model.
My Bug is a 1973, spare tire lays flat, and has the MacPherson strut suspension, AND a flat windshield. trying to figure out why it's not a curved windshield.
Sounds like you have a 1972 Beetle.
title says 1973 previous owner says 1973 one website I typed in vin # said 1973 thus my question why is the windshield flat?
