Has anyone seen a Volkswagen Beetle with the turn signals that flipped out from the door posts?

Asked by Jun 02, 2013 at 08:24 PM about the Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: General

My dad had a Volkswagen Beetle in 1967 - 1968 that had turn signal bars that flipped out from the door frames behind each door. I would like to find another one if possible. I am not sure what year the car was. Any help would be great.

Memory say it was an Europeon model. They stopped using them in US models in the 50's

http://www.vw-resource.com/years.html Looks like pre-1955 is your target...good luck.

the nomenclature for the part is "semaphore". California Import Parts may have the exact part for your Beetle. Is your Beetle 6volt or 12volt?

Pretty sure it was not a VW and was a Morris Minor. Looks close to the same design.

Sorry, Joe...VWs had the semaphores back in the early 50's.

I had a 1960 straight from Germany. Everything was in liters, kilometers and had the flip out blinkers. My Dad worked at the cape during Apollo 13, bought it from a fellow there.

I had one also!!! Owned it for a year or so In 1968.

My dad had a used VW in 1954 that had the flipper signal. Then a couple of years later with another VW the signal was with the lights. That first VW had the split rear window if that helps at all.
