Hello, my name is Romain, I am French, and here is my First car and my first beetle, an August 60' Swedish DeLuxe in OG paint L390 Gulf Blue on american eagles wheels.

I have the certificate of authenticity issued by the Volkswagen Automuseum and period documentation. The car is in excellent condition except some gearbox problems.. And the interior is not the original..

That looks like a Grubenwerks front beam, they were made in Sweden, now defunct. I have one on my -59. Yours look like mine, 3 inches narrowed, about as narrow as you can get and still keep the shock towers, delrin bushings in the ends of the beam tubes.

Great!! Thank you very much for the information, it's highly possible because my bug is a Swedish at the base, I will try to find information about Grubenwerks! Very Happy
