I acquired these with the 69 Bug I recently purchased. I am thinking these may be 1968 only? Since they have the built in gas gauge but have the older style look to the numbers and colors. Am I correct on this?
PS: they will be listed for sale once I confirm their identity

Thanks!

Have you checked for the date stamped on the backside?

they have a month/date code stamped on the back- something like 10/70 or similar.

One is 10/67 and the other is 4/68. Just looking to confirm these are 68 Beetle speedos, since I know nothing about Type 2s or other models.

The one that the odometer is zeroed may have been worked on...the light cluster is held on by screws instead of the rivets that the other one has
