Many thanks

No Beetle ever had a fully automatic transmission... They had semi automatics with clutches and a torque converter and operated on vacuum & electric...
Type 3's had fully automatic gearboxes....

Unfortunately info on this transmission seems nowhere to be found... my guess is it IS an autostick for a 1300cc, for a couple reasons:

1. The only reference I can come up with for it is on the samba, where someone asked about it about 10 years ago (no informative responses there either) but the guy who asked about it is in Essex, England, where the 1302 would have been standard during the autostick years:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=721177

2 In looking around for more info I came across a VW of America 1992 parts list inventory, that doesn't list this part number at all:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/info/1992-VWoA-AircooledPartsInventory.pdf

Since it's a VW of America list, I figure this was a transmission mainly used in other markets where the 1302 would have been sold (the US market had already switched over to the 1500cc by the time the autostick was introduced.)

Sorry not much help...

KevM,
       Look here : http://vwar.org/old_forum/index.php?topic=501.msg2457#msg2457
I can't remember the post name where I showed the location and R & P code. This post may have been about something Bruce2 (Bruce on TheSamba) noticed about gearbox internals on early boxes.
