This might be a stupid question but does anyone know if you can fit different year wings to a different year car? I have a 1968 1300 bug with upright headlights on the wing but I have always wondered if you could buy sloping headlight wings and bolt them straight on. Can anyone enlighten me? Cheers.

It is a straight bolt on job for pre 67 wings.
The only wings you can't use are 1302/1303 ones.
Don't forget you will need replacement headlights (sloping variety) and the earlier wings dont have slots for Europa bumpers as they had the blade or 1200 bumpers fitted.

That's great, cheers. Another quick question, if I got pre 67 wings can I use the earlier irons. What I mean is will the earlier irons bolt on to the iron mounts on the chassis?

I don't think you can use the blade bumper iron but you can convert (attack with an angle grinder) your later irons to mount blade bumpers.
If I can find the article I will post it here
