The 1961 Volkswagen Beetle got a bump in power over previous models. The output of the Beetle's four-cylinder, 1200cc (1.2-liter) aluminum-magnesium engine was increased to 40 horsepower, up from 36 the previous year. Upgrades were also made to the Beetle's fuel pump, transmission, fuel tank, cooling fan, and starter switch. In addition, the brake-fluid reservoir was now transparent, so you could see the fluid level.
Other features of the 1961 Beetle included sun visors for the driver and passenger, coat hooks, assist straps, an automatic windshield washer, an overhead light, and luggage space under the front hood and in a three-foot carpeted compartment behind the rear seat.
A four-speed transmission, independent front suspension and telescopic shock absorbers were also part of the Beetle package.
