Re: [T3] Squareback lifgate interchangability


There are three rear license plate arrangements for German-made Type 36
squarebacks (which includes those for the US market):

1.    15 December 1961 to 31 July1967 or '62 to '67 models
2.    01 August 1967 to 31 July 1970 or '68 to '70 models (license plate
light has a seperate bracket from the rear hatch or liftgate)
 3.    01 August 1970 to 31 July 1973 or '71 to '73 models (license plate
indent is wider by about 4 inches or 100mm)
