The VW Beetle is a true icon of 20th Century motoring and
occupies a significant position in the minds and hearts of drivers
and enthusiasts across the globe. The Beetle is the longest-running
and most-manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in
the world with over 21 million cars produced between 1938 and 2003.
The '1300' model was launched in 1966 and provided the biggest
one-time jump in power output - by a whopping 25% to 50bhp. The
1960's brought great strides in motorway development and VW's
competitors were building ever faster cars to cover the tarmac. The
'1300' was fundamental in ensuring that the Beetle was able to keep
up with the modern pace. With tighter gearing and having been tuned
also for higher rpm. the nimble acceleration of the '1300' was also
more than a match for the later models in the form of the 1500
& 1600 and these characteristics have made the '1300' one of
the most nostalgic and desired classic Beetle incarnations.
Criticised for oversteering characteristics. VW deployed a double
jointed rear axle from 1969 which all but eliminated the problem
making the '1300' a truly well balanced and highly capable
machine.

Finished in silver with a black trim. this Volkswagen Beetle is
fitted with the 1285cc engine. The bodywork is in good order
showing no signs of corrosion and the interior is very tidy. br/>particularly in view of being over 40 years old. We are advised WYR
213N drives well and is a very versatile car that can be used every
day for work or occasionally to exhibit at club meetings. The car
is supplied with a V5C registration form and a current MoT test
certificate valid until 26th July 2016.
