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.
