It's an illusion!

Those are Vanagon hubs, not Beetle. I think the EMPI five spokes were just drilled with a different PCI.

Speaking of EMPIs, I just ran across these I'd never seen before. https://www.jbugs.com/product/10-109...85100929598111



There was an aftermarket Maltese Cross design. Rader, I think.

Ewan McGregor has a 54 Beetle for a daily driver in LA... I love that.

Don't know who Ewan McGregor is, but I'm sad for him since it doesn't have the three-fold four-square sunroof.

The front corners were rounded and the rear corners were square.

It appears to be a Standard. It could be either Kansas Beige or Shantung Gold, there's hardly a difference. In fact, just like mine, it looks like it's Beige ahead of the A-pillar and Gold from there back. Can anyone else see the difference?

Also looks like super front fenders but yeah there's a color mismatch. Cant tell you what the color is,(yellow blind) but the tone is way off

Thanks for the confirmation.

Scroll down about 3/4ths to: August 1970 up to July 1971, from Chassis No. 111 2000 001 up to 111 3200 000
www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/info/paintcodestype1.php

Here's mine:


I should mask off a reverse flame paint job and spray the back of the hood and fenders in Shantung Gold, then fade in red or white behind the bumper. With blue tips.

Flames in either ghost pearl or flip flop would be really interesting
