Re: [T3] 1963 Notchback S?



I have a '64 1500S Notch (VIN 259190) and it has no folding arm rest in the back. Was this standard?

By the way, the '63 sounds like a car with swapped pan. I know my '58 Bug has a number stamped in the body, which identifies the body. Comparing the body and pan number, you can decide whether the car is on its original pan. The numbers should not be the same, but
with a table you can see if they match. Does anyone know if the Type 3 has anything like this?
