By the end of the 1950s, the VW Beetle was already looking back on an existence that had led to two generation changes for other models. Not so with the Type 1, which continued to be built stoically over all decades with a crank-arm front axle and swinging rear axle, apart from the 1302 and 1303 Beetles. All assemblies underwent cosmetic changes, usually several times, and engine output grew from 30 to 34 to 50 hp. Those who think of the Beetle usually have 1200 in mind, the model designation 1200 is due to its displacement. 1955 one celebrated one million beetles at Volkswagen, the world-wide beetle production ended only 2003 with over 21.5 million built vehicles.
