Yeah in 1973 the 1302 was replaced with the 1303, the one with the big panoramic curved windshield and the dash board big enough for good ol plastic Jesus stand on.
Another piece of trivia, all beetles have a slightly curved windshield. If you don't believe it just lay a straight edge across the front of any of them.
Also there's no doubt in my mind that Ferdinand Porsche took a few design ques from Ford.
I'm gonna be away from my computer until tomorrow so since redsdad, and Brian did get the 1302 correct I'm going to let them decide on who should take the floor.
Oh but you better read up on beetles for when I come back.
