Very cool find! You probably already know but I'm on the hunt for Savannah Beige fender beading, a 67 generator, and an original German dome light lens.

Generator Gen: part number 211 903 031/Bosch 0 101 302 067/Rebuilt Bosch Exchange GR 15X through July 1967. However, And, Volkswagen also sold via their Autobahn program Part Number 113 903 031 PX from August 1966 through January 1973-don't know whether they retrochanged the original part number on the generator itself-as it should be the 211 number. If one is searching for a generator to match their vehicle or engine birth date, then it becomes more interesting and supply limited.

Just to clarify, which generator model/part number would be correct for a 67 bug built in October of 66?

Part Number on generator 211 903 031 with date code if you are looking that closely for October 1966 of 610 (September 609 & November 611). Date code is above Bosch and perhaps slightly to the left on Generator. Date codes are on Samba also.

More Generator Gen: Checking Volkswagen Exchange Catalogue explains some of the quirks of the VW parts numbering and marketing system. The 211 903 031VW/Bosch 0 101 302 067 part numbers for 1967 were initial outfitting (and correct for the discriminating owner) but as time moved along, different part number generators also came along. When one bought from Volkswagen a rebuilt/exchange generator, you received 113 903 031 PX. Volkswagen took in some five different part numbered generators (211 903 031/113 903 031K/211 903 031A/113 903 031M/P/113 903 031G and processed them through the rebuilding process--they were then issued with the 113 903 031 PX part number, although the generator casing itself still had the applicable original VW and Bosch part number/date code. I have for illustrative purposes a rebuilt Bosch generator of later vintage-in addition to the original part numbers it also has imprinted in the generator casing running fore and aft "rmanufactured" and also an apparent new date code. On eBay are some GR15X generators, however the one I could see the part number was a 113 number-so if one wishes to stay true to what came on the vehicle from Germany, ensure it is the correct part number. Additionally, this explains also why Windshield Wiper motors can be marked with one part number and have an entirely different part number per Volkswagen. Most likely other parts meet the same criteria

Quinn, what would date code 712 represent?

Hello, Art...Oh, the search, the search! The challenge of the search is what drives us crazy aficionados of Beetles! If you have not done so, place a Wanted Ad on www.thesamba.com These things have a way of staying in collections--then, presto, popping out onto the open market. Also, go through all of the appropriate '60s Beetle Convertibles on thesamba to look for parts cars (how many years used the same mirror?). Contact Chuck's Convertible (Google Chuck's shop) to see if he might have some leads for you. Watch eBay auctions regularly. I hope that you will find one soon, Art. jay

I KNEW IT! The correct handle has black escutcheons, not chrome. And I looked high and low for a black handle with chrome escutcheons. Oh, well, I like it. (Sigh!)
