Hi,

Just bought a beetle, and wondering what model it is, its a 1285cc 1976 P reg, and has a metal sunroof, chrome bumpers (with indicators), looking at the insurance sites they want to know if its a 1300,1303,S etc.

cheers,

Matt.

Let see if I can add a photo?

well it would either be a 1300 or a 1303, the difference is the front suspension and windscreen, if it has a flat windscreen its a 1300, if it has a curved front screen and has proper spring macpherson struts(like a modern car) at the front its a 1303.

If it has a curved windscreen, it's a 1303/1303S. If it's flat, it's a 1200 or 1300.

The windscreen looks flat, so I guess its a 1300, not picking it up till next week, so cant look under the wheels. Cheers for all the fast replies!!!!

Ah that's true, I know its had a new floorpan and recon engine last year, but the paint does look very flat in the photo's. I guess VW may be able to give me more info if I send them the vin number.

This is a picture from behind, do you think it has the correct engine lid, it looks to have been replaced at some stage as the paint is shiny!!



Its the black plastic vent that looks odd to me!
