Beetle 1303


The Volkswagen Beetle 1303 Cabriolet is a unique variant of the classic Beetle produced by Volkswagen. The 1303 model was introduced as an update to the original Beetle design, featuring significant changes such as a redesigned body with a more modern appearance, including a curved windshield and a higher hood.

The Cabriolet version of the Beetle 1303, often referred to simply as the Beetle Cabriolet, retains the iconic Beetle silhouette but incorporates the updates of the 1303 model. It features a manually operated soft top that can be folded down, allowing for open-air driving and providing passengers with the enjoyment of the elements.

Under the hood, the 1303 Cabriolet typically houses an air-cooled, rear-mounted engine. The 1303 model designation indicates the engine displacement, which could vary depending on the specific model year and market. Engine options ranged from smaller 1.2-liter units to larger 1.6-liter engines, providing adequate performance for city driving and cruising.

The Beetle 1303 Cabriolet is cherished by enthusiasts for its timeless design, simplicity, and the nostalgic charm it brings. Despite its production ending in the mid-1970s, many examples of the Beetle Cabriolet are still on the road today, lovingly maintained by collectors and enthusiasts alike. Its enduring popularity is a testament to its status as an automotive icon and a symbol of nostalgia for a bygone era.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.

As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
