A 1962 113?
yes a 1962 model not sure of the 113 prefix
more info in here
there was a 8 min doco on you tube cant seem to find it again
Series one (Beetle) 113 was VW's export model to USA. Had hydraulic brakes and chrome trim on body sides and windows. Cheaper 111 model had mechanical brakes and no chrome trim. Was popular in Germany and not legal for use in USA.
BTW, 1962 was last year for the Wolfsburg crest on front hood.
I owned a '61 with 1500cc large port truck motor and fuel tap (reserve). I miss that car.
'62 was also the last year for the pope nose license light, and the first year to come standard with the gas gauge and rear hood spring if I remember correctly.
At a local show
I’m having an aluminum tank made for my Beck Spyder. I looked everywhere for a male thread M12x1.0 bung to have them weld onto it.
Finally found an HD Petcock that has 3/8”NPT on it to match up to their standard 3/8”NPT Bungs.
So, I’ve got to figure out how I can Rube Goldberg a lever from inside the cockpit to make use of the reserve.
IIRC, our ‘61 Kombi had a reserve lever, too.
One thing that is for sure with early Volkswagens is that just about anything was possible. The license plate light you're referencing was used right up to '64 in Canada. We had a "Canadian Custom" that was essentially a standard, with no chrome on the window trim or dash, black knobs for the winders and dash. The deluxe bug got the new flat, wide version of the lamp that year.
Don't remember any type 1 VW's without rear deck lid springs. ???
