    Steve,
    How about a bit of history on Aussie syncros?
    When were the first syncros sold here?
    When did T3s get dual headlights?

  5. Didn't deluxe models also get trip meter speedo, jail bars & black rubber strips in bumpers? Also did they also have the optional heater outlet that goes under the centre seat as standard?? One other thing is did the Deluxe models also have the folding rear seat?

    Yes all true for Deluxe Models - the folding rear seat from 1977, also clock in dash rhs pod, passenger door had button to activate internal light switch, later models had unique paint colours also.

    They finally got an answer to their question! Although they might have given up after 12 years, I still appreciate the information. :D Didn't realise a '77 deluxe had more features than my '76.

    Think they lost some though.

    Didn’t the 1977 loose the glove box lid?

    I thought they gained the lock in glovebox lid.or a turn knob to open.

    Negative Wayne as far as I have seen, two Deluxes from the show room floor - 1977 and 1978 both had the normal hinge spring lid. My 1979 has the same also.
    I'm thinking that the ones that you are talking about might be aftermarket type maybe from the USA.

    On my single cab has one it's a turn knob.As far as I know it is genuine. You could also get a lockable one.From what year and origin like USA ,I'm not 100% sure.I know if you had a convertible beetle they had a lockable glovebox knob so no one can enter your glove box .While you soft top was down.
