      No original Beetle was anything but air-cooled.

      '68 was the first of what we used to call "late models". It's when they made several changes, but the most obvious are the bumpers and shape of the hood, deck lid and taillights. It wasn't 'til '69 that the swingaxle went away in the U.S., though. Sure, some changes happened in '65, more in '66 and '67, but '68 was the most obvious to the casual observer with the exception of the curved window Super Beetle that hit in '73.

      To many the '67 is the "Holy Grail" of Beetles, but I like the '66 best. It has fewer oddball parts and still has the early headlights, yet has the larger engine compartment that allows the fitment of big/modified engines more easily.

      I could go on and on about the changes, but it would bore everyone to death, possibly even me!
