Early '63, I drive it back and forth to work in the French Quarter. One of these days I'll get around to polishing out the paint. Getting new tires put on right now.

Did the math from the production numbers in Progressive Refinements, I put the build date at approximately September 7, 1962.

At what point did they stop adding the Wolfsburg crest on the hood?


Old question, but Progressive Refinements says October 1, 1962 as the discontinuation date of the crest.

I bought this in VT in late June and my adult son and I drove it back 1,700 miles from Albany, NY to Arlington, TX over the 4th of July weekend. It has a 20yr old restoration and around 67k miles, but its a well maintained infrequent driver. Lots of plans to refresh this further and enjoy it for a while.

Here are my two 1962's.

Grey one (Beatrice) - is our weekender. Must change out those fat front indicators for the peanuts.

Green one (Beryl) - starts, 6v, I rescued her from a junking yard 2017 Must have been sitting there for years. I bought her home, cut and polished her, put air in her tyres and he came alive.
