do these sort of bumpers fit on any year beetle
They're meant to go on Beetles with 'blade bumpers' ie not cars with the bigger square-section 'Europa' bumpers.
You can get adaptor bumper irons to use earlier blades/American-spec bumpers on later Europa-type cars but IMHO they look pants :D .

do u no whether they will fit on a 71 without any adjustments
It all depends on what bumpers your car has/originally had, if its a '71 1200 they had the earlier style blade bumpers anyway(ie same profile as the American-spec bumpers, just without the overriders and 'towel rail' bars) and so fitting American-spec bumpers is a simple swap, if it has the square-section Europas (see pic of front end of my car, those are Europa bumpers) then you'd need to buy the adaptors I mentioned earlier.
