I am on the lookout for a 1971 VW beetle to match up to our 71 Boler, thought they would look good together but I have never driven one. Anybody here ever drive an early 70's bug?

We had several the closest to a 71 was a 72 Super beetle they have a Mcpherson strut front suspension.
We brought our new born son home from the hospital in it, now 43
I would suggest finding a standard Beetle that has the torsion arm front suspension, more popular therefore better parts availability.
Dont know what their towing ability would be though.
