Dan,

I have to differ with you there.  All the type 3's I've had ( 66
squareback, 63 notchback and my current car, a 65 notchback) all
had/h*wrap around turn signals.  In checking catalogs, RMMW lists
the bullet lens as fitting the 62-63 and 68-69 (p/n 315 953 161D, $11.75
each) and the wrap around for 64-67 (p/n 311 953 161D, $14.50 each).
California Imports lists the same years for $10.95 and $12.95 each.  My
63 notch had later fenders on it, which is why it had the wrap arounds.
As far as the bullets looking "cooler", well, that's a matter of
personal opinion.  I prefer the wrap around on the early models much
more.
