This is pretty weird to me... some very conflicting parts used.

Agreed. Wheel/tire mismatch, wing with a roof rack.

But a sharkmouth makes up for a lot.

Edit:
So here's a wrought-iron Beetle, but this one is covered in star/diamond tessellations.

No the shark mouth just adds to the confusion. All I can get is "What were they thinking?"

I suppose it needs the evap cooler on the passenger side to be complete

Just A Car Guy: Maurice just blew my mind... so, I'm wrecked for the rest of the day while drs try to stuff my brains back into my head...... how have I never seen a "Passing Eye" before?

I remember there was a passing interest in these a few years back.

From an Ecomodder point of view it's terrible aerodynamically; but from a VW modder point of view, it (being a German accessory) fit's a VWs door lip, where an American peep mirror doesn't.

I have one on my '59.

I saw it at a swap meet and had to have it even before knowing what it was.

Makes me happy like Jiminy Cricket.

That's too square to be Murican import. Must be a 411 or later year European

The closest match I find is the Polo Variant. It's front engined, prolly South American. The wheels and bumpers look right.

While I was looking:

This could go under Aerodynamics, but it's VW specific:



Thumbnail says it all. They only test 1/3 of the width of the roof.
