Hello 1974bug-- The Super Beetle first hit the showrooms in 1971 and I bought one of the first ones. Wish I still had it. Good luck from Bovan.

I got a 71 super, they are alright because 71-72 still have the flatter windscreen like the standards of that year group. the "stupid beetle" has a wider hood and struts instead of theh beam front end. , on the year i got it is the same car from the window pillar back. all that means is they suck to baja but handle really well at freeway speeds, also the transaxle has freeway gearing for really tall gears.

I can confirm that 1971 was the first year of the SuperBeetle. If I recall correctly, SuperBeetle Sedans were made from 71-75. SuperBeetle Convertibles were made from 71-79.

1971 was the first year of production. The convertibles were only available in the "super" model; I bought a convertible and she's still running about today. Her name is Gerta..

If the windshield is curved it's a Super Beetle.
