The mechanism is totally different and it doesn't seem to trigger the door. Is an ...

I just got a set of door handles that are PERFECT. They have an SC code however and my ignition is SU. Can I just swap the key cylinders or are these completely different keyways?
I know to leave the ...

That would make sense. This is the same mechanism from when the car was rear ended. I'll get a new one from WW. Unless you think originals are better?
My handle is the original, re chromed. I hope I ...

Got to talk to the original owner of my bug today. He's 92 and remembered the car well. The family is looking to see if they have any photos or anything related to the car.

Correct. When I got my car it had the 64 style (the car is a 64)
I liked the smaller peanut style ones, and since they fit the same holes without making any changes to the fenders I figur3d it was a ...

Or you can swap over to the original style headlight plug which doesn't require wire terminal ends. Each wire connection is spring loaded, so you depress the tab, insert the stripped wire end, then r ...

The previous owner of my car had cut the headlight plugs at some point.

Ok. So I need to figure out what I'm missing.
