Optional open or closed roof panel, US or Euro version bumpers and front signal lights. Full interior with opening front and side doors and rear hatch with detailed 1.2 liter air cooled engine. Decal with authentic factory markings. Molded in white and clear with chrome plated parts and soft black tires.

    I have a friend wiyh a 57 split window you could photograph his car and put it in place of what you are saying is a 55 beetle it would be more convincing than the early 70s model that’s there

    Hello Trent, thank you for pointing that out. I should have seen that myself but was very busy when this page was put together. I will leave your comment here but will just remove that photo.

    Thanks, I appreciate it and I feel silly for the oversight
