I have just bought a 1974 SuperBeetle. It has some factory-fitted options.
Among other options it has got a centre armrest in the backseat.... Shocked
I have never seen it on any beetle, anyone of you guys who have seen this?
Or is this an ultrarare option.... Rolling Eyes

No, not of that. a beetle, but thanks.

Thank you Alex857- you know what a beetle looks like. Cool M-code. It looks really easy to modify a bug seat with that option. I feel a mod coming on...

Strange how some People make statements like "not original" and so on, when they don't know it for a fact. What's the point in doing that?

Congrats on Your super rare back seat! Very Happy

Interesting!
Never saw such an option.....

My first thought that due to the lack of real legroom, the arm rest would seriously interfere with comfort when sitting sideways on the seat!
