The photos Larry sent me are of an early VW Type 3 muffler. It's not one of 
the earliest versions, but it has the preheat pipe for the single carb engines 
and also the threaded "nuts" to connect it to the separate rear heat 
exchangers. It's a Leistritz, which is the very best brand, probably the same 
as the OE VW parts.

It could be used in your '68 if you cut off that preheat pipe and brazed it 
closed. I already have one of those in my stock, but have not had anyone 
ask for one in years. They are rare, but the demand is nil. Not many single 
carb Type 3 engines still out there.
