By gosh, Rick, that’s right and I stated it poorly.
What I should have said is that standard (beam front) beetles and super beetles were both produced from 1971 - 1975 and buyers could choose either, with the trend toward more supers as time passed. The dealerships were pushing the supers as their sales margin was slightly better.
Sedans (either model) stopped in 1975 but convertibles continued until 1979 (76-79 ‘verts were Super only)
The standard and super were essentially different models offering different features, but the engines were the same. The supers offered much more luggage space (and those big “elephant foot” tail lights!) along with some interior upgrades, but the big thing was the strut front end and better handling. I can’t remember if the Supers had disks or drums up front - I think drums, but Rick?
Good to see you know your Beetles, @LI-Rick !!
