VW Beetle 1302 Bucket Seat Guide

The VW Beetle 1302 (71>72)...

‘The 1302 Beetle’  In an effort to make the Beetle more practical and improve sales, VW offered a restyled version alongside the regular Beetle which was badged the 1302 and the 1302S. This had a more bulbous front bodywork but retained the flat windscreen and the torsion bar front suspension was replaced with MacPherson struts with coil springs, similar to the VW Golf.

Once you start using your VW Beetle 1302 for fast road and track use, you’ll soon realize just how much you need new bucket seats to provide more support. 

On cornering, you may find your self holding onto the steering wheel tighter than usual, tensing your thighs and legs against the central console and/or door card. You’ll probably find your weight shifting in the seat and having to re-position your self after the corner. 

None of this is correct. Your seat should provide the right level of support so that you can grip the steering wheel only for steering, your legs should be supported and your weight shouldn’t shift around. The recommendations we provide are to ensure that you feel comfortable and supported allowing you to focus on the job at hand. 

We’ve worked closely with our customers to create our VW Beetle 1302 guide.
The resulting recommendations are based on previous customer car installations.
