Volkswagen Beetle: Buying guide and review (1945-2003)

Volkswagen Beetle: Buying guide and review (1945-2003) Classic and Performance Car
VW Beetle buying guide VW Beetle buying guide
Volkswagen’s Beetle represents so many different things to so many people. With 21.5 million of them built around the world for more than 50 years, chances are you have either owned one at some point, or know someone that has. 
 
Born out of a need to quickly get German people mobile and onto the rapidly expanding autobahn network, this small and functional car was designed in the 1930s by Ferdinand Porsche, and was championed by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi government. Full scale production of the Type 1 didn’t start until 1945 though, after World War 2 came to an end. 
 
It was of course developed over the years, with huge improvements, larger engines and improved trim and interior. European production continued right through to 1978, however the Brazilian and Mexican cars carried on for much longer, taking the production right through to 2003. 
 
Today many look good but are rotten; others have been badly restored. Most Beetles have also been modified in some way, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing as it often makes them more usable; bigger engines, later brakes and newer gearboxes are all par for the course. What matters most is that you don’t buy a liability. 
 
Few cars are as easy to maintain or upgrade as the Beetle, with a ready parts supply and plenty of specialists. Running costs are low, ride comfort is great and performance isn’t bad; this is no road burner, but ample low-down torque means the Beetle is easy to drive. But perhaps the best aspect of all is the social scene that goes with the Beetle; if you want to kick start your social life, just buy a classic Beetle. 
 

Which classic Beetle to buy?

 
Although the Beetle didn’t seem to evolve much during its lengthy production run, nothing is interchangeable between the first and last cars. Indeed, there were changes of some sort just about every year. 
 
Most available Beetles are from the 1960s or 1970s; earlier cars rarely come onto the market, especially in right-hand drive form. As a result you can expect to buy a Beetle with an 1192cc or 1285cc engine, although by 1967 there was a 1493cc unit too. Even the biggest standard Beetle engine displaced just 1584cc, so running costs are brilliantly low.
 
The 1200 was always aimed at those on a budget; it was last to get brake, suspension and electrical upgrades. The 1302S and 1303S are more usable thanks to their 1600 powerplants, bigger boot, MacPherson strut front and semi-trailing arm rear suspension. The sloped-headlamp design is the purist’s favourite; buy a 1966 or 1967 car and you could have this with 1500 power, making it the pick of the bunch for some. However, pre-67 cars tend to rust less; whatever you buy, if it’s RHD make sure it’s genuine, as many cars have been converted. That’s fine if done properly, but such cars are worth less than original RHD examples.
 
Non-factory convertibles are best avoided, as they tend to leak badly, but if safe they can provide affordable summer fun. Finally, the Beetle is popular with young drivers, plenty of whom have learned or practised their restoration skills on a Bug. As a result, amateur rebuilds abound, so check for uneven panel gaps, wonky welding and distorted panels.

Common problems

 
• Check the jacking points, wheelarches and floorpans for rot, along with the spare wheel well and bumper mountings front and rear. On later cars with MacPherson struts, scrutinise the strut top mountings. Also check the running boards – particularly where they’re mounted to the bodyshell and the sills. The latter incorporate the heater ducts, so wholesale repairs are needed rather than patching. 
 
• Inspect the rear body supports ahead of the driveshafts under the wings, and significant corrosion in the rain gutters is bad news. Lift the back seat; the sound deadening absorbs water, then rots the floorpan. 
 
• The Karmann Cabriolet’s roof wears or gets damaged while the frame rots. From 1972 an all-metal frame was fitted, but earlier cars featured some timber sections. 
 
• All Beetles feature an air-cooled flat-four engine. Noisy when cold, these engines are tough, plus cheap and easy to rebuild. Minor oil leaks are normal, but anything more means a full rebuild is due. Parts for pre-1960 powerplants (1131cc and 1192cc) are scarce, with these engines completely different from later units. Swapping to a later engine will give you better usability and cheaper rebuilds, but you’ll also need to swap to the later gearbox and final drive. 
 
• A four-speed manual gearbox was fitted to most Beetles, but a three-speed automated manual was offered with the 1500 engine. These latter boxes are extremely rare now though. The most likely issue is with worn synchromesh or layshaft bearings, but rebuilt gearboxes are readily available. 
 
• From 1974 rack-and-pinion steering was fitted to the 1303; other cars got a box. Play should be minimal, except for 1972-74 cars. These suffer from rotten inner wings which flex when the steering wheel is turned; it feels like a worn box but it’s actually a weakened structure. 
 
• Axles rust from the inside out. If there’s much clonking and rattling over poor surfaces, assume a replacement axle will be needed. 
 
• Most Beetles have drum brakes all round, but from 1967 the 1500, 1302S and 1303S got discs up front. Everything is reliable, available and affordable, although pre-1960 parts are scarce. 
 
• Butchered interiors are common, so check for damaged trim. Most cars have a painted dash, but some late-1970s Beetles and the 1303 featured a plastic fascia that cracks and splits after years of exposure to the sun; repro replacements are expensive. 
 
• Until 1967, all Beetles featured a 6-volt electrical system; then it switched to a 12-volt set-up. Any car can be converted to 12 volts; for more reliable starting, and for the easier fitment of ancillaries it’s worthwhile.

Summary and prices

 
Not only is the Volkswagen Beetle one of the most iconic cars of all time, it’s a cultural icon that goes beyond the automotive world entirely. While it might be hard to find original or unmolested cars for not a lot of money, the great thing about the Beetle is that it continues to offer the kind of cheap, accessible and DIY motoring that endeared them to the masses in the first place.
 
Prices have moved in recent years, with many people paying a premium for clean original cars, while there is still a thriving scene for the modified cars. Early cars are difficult to find, and rarely come up for sale in the UK, and when they do often sell for upwards of £25,000 in top condition. Oval screen cars (1953-1957) are again quite difficult to find, and start at around £5000, rising to £15,000 for a perfect example. 
 
If you want something fun and easy to look after, then it really has to be one of the later cars. Spares are plentiful, and there are many more around to choose from. You can still find a viable project from the £800 mark, while there are decent runners from around £2000. Pay around £6000 and you should be able to get something really presentable.

    The room for luggage in smaller cars such as the Beetle is not too large. To resolve this issue, Westfalia produced after the war a special trailer for the KdF-Wagen, it was the model ' Wolfsburg '. Unfortunately there not many left of this type. This beautiful aerodynamic shaped trailer had a wooden frame and a large lid, sometimes covered with artificial leather. The weight was 150 kg, and you could put 250 kg luggage in it. The model was produced until about half way the 50 's. This beautiful Westfalia Wolfsburg is from 1956. With the trailer the original German "Anhängerbrief" is included. The Volkswagen Beetle 1200 from 1963 is imported from Sweden in 2015. The APK (Dutch MoT) expires on 20 January 2019. More information on: www.kucarfa.nl

EQUIPMENT Chrome window trim, chrome bumpers, quarter lights, VW bonnet emblem, chrome headlamp rings, bright belt line, ashtray with gear pattern diagram, internal bonnet and fuel filler release, chrome door handles, running boards, hazard lights, interior light, headlight flasher, fresh air vents, sill vents, glove box, twin sunvisors. Dealer options; Seatbelts. EXTERIOR The unmodified and original nature of this delightful UK RHD Beetle 1200 remains a huge testament to the cherished ownership this example has enjoyed. Finished in Volkswagen Marina Blue, (Marinablau - code L54D), the gleaming paintwork boasts a bright pure shine and is guaranteed to please onlookers. Faint blemishes are detectable upon scrutiny and minor remedial cosmetic work has been carried out to uphold the very pretty finish. The vehicle is structurally excellent and the panels are straight and free from corrosion or damage. All chrome bumpers and trim pieces are beautifully bright with the exception of light pitting to the quarter light surrounds. Having avoided the common modification trend, this wonderful matching numbers example remains exactly how Volkswagen intended and represents all that is special about this true motoring icon. INTERIOR The original and unrestored Alabaster Leatherette upholstery and matching door cards remain in excellent order with only a light marking visible on the rear bench. The factory fitted thin two spoke steering wheel along with all switchgear and controls are in superb order and all functions operate perfectly. The headlining is fully intact, tight and free from the common discolouration. Original features such as the dashboard ashtray with gear shift diagram and tyre pressure chart on the glovebox lid are a delight to see. The tidy front luggage area houses the spare wheel sited in a solid and clean front compartment with factory chassis plate still in place. The chassis stamp is also clearly visible underneath the rear bench seat and denotes a build date of August 1970. The correct washer bottle fed off the spare tyre pressure remains fitted and complete but an electric washer upgrade has been carried out. A humble yet functional classic interior, hugely reminiscent of a more modest motoring era. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The original air-cooled rear mounted engine affirms the cars matching number credentials with the engine number prefix ‘D0’ correct for the year and model and matching the V5 document. The spotlessly clean engine bay with an emphasis on originality and meticulous maintenance is clearly evident. A power output of 34bhp and 65ib.ft of torque from its 1192cc displacement delivers performance at a relaxed pace, whilst the unmistakable VW Beetle engine note is delightfully pronounced. The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox is positive, light and smooth. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The original pressed steel wheels with as new stainless steel hubcaps are pristine and are shod in matching Toyo 155 R15 tyres, new in 2014, with excellent tread remaining. Dual circuit drum brakes front and rear operate freely, offering modest stopping power when compared to modern vehicles, exactly as they were made! HISTORY FILE This German built 1971 model year example was manufactured in August 1970 and registered new on 5th November 1970. The supplying Volkswagen Main Dealer, Weir Lodge Garage of Surrey, along with other main dealers serviced the car extensively in the early years with 12 VW stamped entries in the original VW Service Record. An order form from VW Dealers Colborne Garages Ltd dated February 1973 and made out to second owner Mr Geoffrey Clark outlines a purchase price of £720, less £150 for his Morris 1100 Traveller taken in part exchange! Furthermore, a colossal history folder contains a huge collection of receipts and invoices for service and maintenance throughout the vehicles entire lifetime. The dealer supplied instruction manual and operating handbooks have been kept along with the original VW Diagnosis Punch Card Booklet. Evidence of enthusiast ownership extends even to the factory paint code sticker removed and preserved inside the Service Record cover! A delightfully genuine example, one which offers a real testament to the devoted ownership and careful upkeep bestowed upon the car. MOT July 2017, HPI Clear.

This is the only year the 1285cc engine was used in the Beetle with a power output of 50bhp at 4600 rpm to deliver a top speed of 74mph and 34.5mpg. The unmistakable VW Beetle engine note is delightfully pronounced but completely unobtrusive. The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox of single plate dry clutch type operates perfectly offering light and precise progression throughout the range. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Five pristine pressed steel wheels painted in original pearl white and black centres, feature the ’66 model year ventilating slots for aided brake cooling and are shod in matching period looking Firestone F-560 165 R15 tyres with masses of tread still remaining. The chrome hubcaps are factory originals and show only the faintest pitting. Single circuit braking system with drums all-round offer modest stopping power with a firm pedal action a necessity, exactly as they were made! HISTORY FILE This unmolested example was bought by a Mr Ian Hudson on 5th November 1965 and has remained in his care throughout. A now retired Volkswagen mechanic with a reputation for outstanding VW knowledge, the car was transferred into his garage name, Hudson Autos in 2008. A cherished family vehicle that has only covered 61,715 miles in its 51 years evokes strong memories especially with his son, Darren Hudson, who would dearly love the car to go to a caring home. Darren would be happy to share his memories with any would be new custodian. With the history file containing the original owner’s handbook, old tax discs and MOT certificates. This brilliant and unmolested beetle is ready to be enjoyed and preserved for many years to come. MOT January 2018, HPI Clear.
