Spar­tan war­rior

Wheels (Australia) - - Next Issue -

Not a lot to re­port on the in­te­rior; that was the point. The flat dash of­fi­cially had only a speedo and temp gauge – with a $15 ‘manda­tory op­tion’ tacho and heater. Seats were light­weight, one-piece buck­ets. Floorhinged ped­als, gawky gear­lever and dak-dak ex­haust note kept the vibe very Volk­swageny. The pre-a se­ries cars, dis­tin­guished by quad ‘bee­hive’ tail lights (A-se­ries had teardrop tail lights), only had three ex­te­rior colours: white, red and blue.
