VOLKSWAGEN 1500 BEETLE

2-door saloon.

Last and most powerful of the pre-MacPherson-sprung Beetles, with the old torsion bars at either end. Its 44bhp gives 80mph, and dual-circuit disc/drum brakes are now standard. Also has bigger flywheel, wider rear track (should help handling) and softer rear springs with supplementary stabilizer spring. Improvements as for 1300, with 'stick automatic' available from '67, with semi-trailing rear.
