As far as I know there is no difference they just manufactured it some place else and the emmisions could be different. But back in 1967 there was not alot of emission stuff then. I had a 1969 that was build in germany but all the parts were the same


My fauld Germany is the same as Eurpean. But I have had 3 vw beetles and have never found any difference in the engines


I had a 1966 1300 Beetle which I imported from Germany. There was no difference ever in parts, except that the 1966 still had a 6 Volt system.


The European VW has an open tray or shelf under the glove box that the US models don't have. Fossilized2
