okay here we go. 1. NO. volkswagen did NOT install radio's in oval window cars. actually they didn't start installing radio's until the 60's! you could however order a radio as a dealer installed option. in this case the factory would ship a radio and antenna to the dealer. it was up to the dealership to install the antenna. MOST did this on the passenger side, but a few were put on the driver side. and MOST were installed slightly leaning backward, but it was up to the mechanic at each dealership on how and where they put the antenna. 2. NO seatbelts. these did not become factory installed till the mid 60's. now in the early 60's you could get dealer installed seatbelts, but they were NOT factory.
