I can barely see the picture but it looks like a 67 to me so lots of other parts on the car will be one year only oddities such as the door handles. I have always had a thing about the 67 1500 that is me sticking out of the sunroof of one we had just tidied up in 1982 according to the DVLA data base this is blue now.
I think I may have to opt for the Vented Type as I think having a 1600 Engine the 67 Lid doesn't allow for any extra Airflow.I noticed when I was driving it last summer that the Oil Temp went quite high which could be a restricted Airflow issueWith originality not being an issue (or even possible with it being shaved) I would get a 68 on lid to match the rear valence. Don't throw that lid though, even rotten a 67 lid is worth money.
That picture was taken by the seller before the Vent below the window was fitted.I have received my new 68 Decklid which looks shorter than the 67.Will this still fit?Well I was hoping whoever did that work had fitted inner wing louvers and a remote mounted oil cooler. If not it is probably one of the silliest things I have ever seen done to a Beetle.
