Re: 2tone? & fender match

Fenders are same from Aug 69 on (they may have extra holes for trim and
side repeater flashers).
Only two tone factory Type 3s I've seen were both Squarebacks with Sea blue
lower and Pearl white roofs.  Order codes have two paint colour codes, but
they are almost always the same number.  i.e. The VW system allowed it, but
maybeč‰ĺdn't actually produce it much.
With the Beetle, the side panels can look good a different colour.  Maybe
the Elm green (L60D) is the colour you saw (on my Type 3 page on the
website).  There is a deep sea green also, but I don't know what it looks
