If I were you I'd go for a 61 last year for bullet turn signals and glass tail lights and first year for non bastard 40HP motor unless you ditch that.Last year for tube style metal grab bar on middle seat. Has most refinements of the early bullet style era before they went to fried eggs!

Bullets only went into 63 in Europe and they're for the most part CRUSTY!

Bullets were up to '61 in USA, '63 everywhere else.

What is your VIN you see on the bus in the engine compartment and tag on air vent?
