The VW Super Beetle was a different beast from the very simple original Beetle. McPherson struts at the front and semi-trailing arms at the rear were more sophisticated that the older car and a bigger engine gave it more performance. Long ignored by most restorers, it is becoming more desirable as the stocks of older cars are restored or rust away. This book tells you how to restore a Super Beetle to clean, roadworthy condition with minor modifications to improve performance and handling. It describes a detailed build-up from paint and body to interior and mechanical parts. It is an invaluable guide for any Super Beetle owner or restorer.

Volkswagen Beetles and their variants are some of the most iconic and easily recognizable cars on the road! The classic air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle, officially the Volkswagen Type 1, is regarded as one of the most important and well-engineered vehicles of the twentieth century. It was the most popular imported car in America in the 1960s, and before that it enjoyed a humble beginning as "the people's car" in its native Germany. The Complete Book of Classic Volkswagens encompasses the evolution of the popular Beetle as well as other variations of Volkswagen's air-cooled cars, vans, and trucks. Thoroughly illustrated, this is an invaluable reference to Volkswagen's collectible and iconic cars. The history of VW automobiles is just as colorful as the hues they were manufactured in, and this book illustrates the full story. German automakers originally sought to supply their countrymen with an automobile that was easy to mass produce. By 1938, they finalized the design for the VW "Bug"--the first rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive configured car. In its heyday, the little rounded Beetle was produced at a rate of more than one million per year. Today, with more than 23 million cars built, the Beetle holds the record as the most-produced passenger car of all time. But the Beetle is only one part of the air-cooled Volkswagen story. The rest--from Type 2 vans, pick-ups, and campers to the Type 113 "Super Beetle"--is included here. If you're the owner of a Volkswagen or if you just love their iconic look and you're interested in their evolution, this book deserves a place on your bookshelf.
