Hi, I'm hoping someone may know lots n lots about early bugs and can help me out with a few questions.
Firstly if a 1957 Karmann Convertable Bug is made in October 57, is it likely that the car would be made to 1958 spec. and would it be likely registered in 58 in the UK?
If so is it s 57 bug, or a 58!?
Also can anyone tell me the differences between a 57 and a 58 cabrio?
I've looked here: http://www.vw-resource.com/years.html
but not found much help. I'm yet to find a copy or someone with a copy of "The Beetle - the chronicles of a peoples car" or "VW Beetle, a comprehensive Illustrated history" by Keith Seume."
If they contain this information I need I'm more than happy to buy a copy but don't want to go to the expense without it.
I recently bought "Volkswagen Beetle Model by Model - Laurence Meredith" at VW Action but thats not much help either.
If its a 57 or a 58 I need to find the exact spec and equipment etc for it.
Anyone any idea's? Cheers, Al
