The American market was always a little different, or ahead of other countries, with their Beetle upgades. It was they who demanded the upright headlamps, that became the norm everywhere else after. Their early ones were still 6volt it seems. I have known of base models of around 1968 in Europe with uprights but 6volt. Has anyone here ever owned such a car:?:

I have not but a friend of mine did have a 68 many years ago it seemed just like a 12 volt but was 6. I am going back to the early 80s here the color was a dark blue four stud wheels on drum brakes 1200cc. That's all i can remember about her.

I remember years ago Harvey Simpson telling me he'd seen such car in Belgium. Model was the 1200A as I think he said.

I owned a 1973 ex german army beetle which was 6 v ,fuel gauge was a 60s mechanical type .looked like a base model 1200 with minimal headlining ,no chrome and blade bumpers.Also a lack of bonnet badge and trim ,only anodized side trim in black.Obviously it was olive drab being a military car.Sold it many years ago.
