I have found a 74 bug that has some of the Baja conversion done. I have not looked at it yet as it is over a hundered miles from us. It is NOT a super beetle., and he says that because it is not a super, it does not have the strut front end. Would this be correct for a bug of that year that is not a super beetle?

Not all supers had curved windshields.

Both standard and Super beetles were made until 74

But a 74 Super would have a curved windshield.

Yes mykul is right. The 1st 2 years of Supers were 71 and 72 and they had flat windshields like regular Bugs, but had the strut front suspension. 73 and later Supers had curved windshields. Beetles were sold in the US as standard and Supers through the 1978 year model, and Super Beetle convertibles were sold in the 79 year model. They continued to be sold in other parts of the world until somewhere around 2003 when the last original model Beetle rolled off the assembly line in Mexico.
