Okay, so the pink says it is a 68...

but here's what makes me think it is a 67 or earlier...

1. tail lights are 67 and earlier
2. wiring diagram matches a 67 not a 68
3. it had stock LOWback seats
4. the turn signal lamps I believe are 67 and earlier
5. not sure if a swing axle/ball joint combo was made in 68? didn't 68 switch to IRS?

First off...The car is about 40 years old. Few of them are even remotely close to original. VW Bugs haven't even been imported into the US in 30 years. A lot of the members on here weren't even born when the last Bug was sold new in the US. Lots of things are likely to have been changed in that time. It may have a 67 body on a 68 pan for instance...

1. tail lights are 67 and earlier
- see above, and it's a Baja with different fenders

2. wiring diagram matches a 67 not a 68
- see above

3. it had stock LOWback seats
- see above

4. the turn signal lamps I believe are 67 and earlier
- see above

5. not sure if a swing axle/ball joint combo was made in 68? didn't 68 switch to IRS?
- In 68s Only AutoStick trans cars got IRS. All other 68 Bugs were still swing axle. All 69s sold in the US were IRS. Original 68 axles were long axle-long spline, and a Z-bar was installed across above the trans connecting the suspension to reduce "Jacking Effect". 67s came with 5 lug wheels while 68s are 4 lug.

To verify the year of your pan, check the VIN on the pink, in the pan on top of the tunnel under the rear seat bottom and on the top left of the dash. If it is a 67, it will start with "117", a 68 will start with "118". If the body has been swapped, the numbers on the dash and under the back seat will probably not match, or the dash tag may have been removed
