The VW Beetle is one of the best-loved of all classic cars, with many thousands preserved across the world, many in regular use. Over the years countless changes were introduced, together making a mid-'60s Beetle, for instance, very different from one built in the mid-'50s, or mid-'70s, despite the obvious similarities. With the aid of hundreds of color photographs, this new paperback edition of VW Beetle: Specification Guide 1949-1967 documents all the Beetle's specification changes and model differences during the classic period 1949-67, making it possible to determine the original specification and fittings of any Beetle from this period.
