VOLKSWAGEN 1500/1500 VARIANT
2-door saloon, estate car.
A 'better Beetle', but is it? Main differences under the skin amount to more room, the option of a proper, car-type wagon, and round-section torsion bars if you care to look underneath. Automatic choke and all-synchro 'box, but still six-volt electrics and drum brakes on these. Plus: it's faster than contemporary Beetle. Minus: it uses more fuel.
