I found a cut-off roof from a 65 vw beetle. I have a 74 beetle that needs a roof replacemente. It looks the same, just want to make sure if it fits.

the main section of roof is the same, the rear window is a different size, aprox 2" taller after about '71almost certain that the screen is the same but not 100%

Is the 74 a super beetle? If it is then there are a lot of differences the main one being the windshield profile is completely different curved vs. Flat glass and as previously stated,the rear window is different,I would think that there are enough aftermarket companies making replacement panels for these cars,only the second most produced in the world next to the model T
