I have a 1965 ruby red 34hp VW 1200A Standard Beetle which I bought from the widow of the first owner in 1991. It had only 40.000 kilometers run and also the complete history was included in the price of DM 1800,-.
Interesting is, that the first owner was pensioner when he ordered the car. He ordered the 1200A with Saxomat automatic. The Saxomat takes the function of the clutch pedal.
After he had the car, the Volkswagen dealer installed a turn signal switch with headlight high beam function of the 1965 T1 Bus. The factory installed foot headlight high beam switch was removed.
I guess, the high beam switch was changed and the Saxomat ordered, because the first owner had problems with his left leg.
Below you see scans of the order, order confirmation, invoice, registration and a bit of history of my VW 1200A Standard Beetle.
