In the parking lot in front of the local warehouse store, a few surprises rested among more modern machinery, including this bronze colored Volkswagen. As a Super Beetle, this variation of the iconic “bug” features a wider and higher hood that hides an independent front suspension and an extra four cubic feet of cargo space. The rear of this example housed either a 1300cc flat-four or the 57 horsepower 1600cc flat-four used in the 1302S model. On the decklid were four rows of cooling vents revealing this early form of the Super Beetle to be a 1972 model.
