Dear bunda-- Volkswagen has used the designation "Wolfsburg Edition" on several of their models through the years as a way of honoring the city where Volkswagens were originally built, Wolfsburg, Germany. Added features for the Wolfburg editions have always been limited to trim or color and never changed engines available for that year and model. I was unable to find exact details of the 1962 Wolfburg Beetle, but the following link is an interesting read-- http://everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=1404569. Zehr gut? Good luck from Bovan.

The '62 crest did not have special meaning as all '62s had the badge; however, in the mid-'60s two versions were marketed in the US - standard and deluxe. The deluxe usually had rear quarter pop-out windows and carpeting rather than rubber matting, but that's it. In 1970 VW marketed a "Formula Vee" edition with a few notable inclusions - a faux wood and brushed chrome steering wheel, pop-outs, vertical bumper guards, faux wood dash, some had beauty rings, mud flaps, but no "special" edition ever had a different engine than the standard Beetle. The standard Beetle continued but a new version of a deluxe model appeared in 1971 - the Super Beetle. Hello fuel injection, goodbye reliability.
