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.
