BTW the bumpers on yours are for the 1970 model.

Which bumper is for a 1970? The one on the 65 or the 69?

Have a look at the sticky "Karmann Ghia Progressive changes 19551974"

Shortened bumper rails accommodate the corner reflectors introduced that year

But also note cars made after August 1966 have a different sweep of the rear wheel arch. So If you swapped the bumpers from the '69 onto the '65 they'd be a little too short. But then, the '70 bumpers probably already are.
