They really aren't that rare, and pre 67 for many reasons including;
-I love the over all styling of the older bugs and yes there is a difference.
-I am very familiar on how to dismantle the older beetles
-I have access to parts galore for those years

I mean really I am looking between 61 & 67, any older and you get into the splits and ovals and those are pricey in any condition. Besides I never was a fan of the post 67 beetle, super beetle etc, besides I need a flat windshield for the heavy modding I plan to do.
