I'm familiar with the differences.


My doors really look like 68 doors. My question is did VW maybe use later
style doors at the end of the 67 model year? I know such things happened in
the other direction with left-over previous year parts making it into the
new model year.

At this point I'm not changing doors. These have been completely redone and
are about to be painted. And there are plenty of things about this car that
are not year-correct.

So it's just a curiosity question.
