[T3] '69 Squareback FI, MT, Front Axle Beam

There are people in the UK doing awful things to their Type 3 front ends -
butchering them and replacing with Beetle beams.  I can't think that it
makes them more driveable - must be less stable to have a narrower front
end.  Still, I guess the old beam is any good, ythey can sell it to someone
who cares about keeping theirs as it was built.
