I'm going to resurrect this one by soliciting some help from the nice folks here.

I too need the shift pattern.  I've got some stickers from the bloke in Oz who made them, they're fine, but of course I don't have Park on my '70 Ghia.

First question, since memory fails me: I seem to recall seeing the pattern overlaid on the wood grain of the dash for my Ghia.  Am I mistaken?  I didn't take any pics of the wood grain before I stripped it off the car.  If it was on the wood grain, then a sticker (white lettering on a clear base) would be fine, and I would investigate repro'ing these here, w/o the 'P'.

I also have pics of various Ghias of my era where the pattern is clearly on the ash tray.  If so, in that case do I understand that it was painted on?  'Cause my ash tray has no trace of lettering.  Would a sticker work in that application?

OK thanks all.

Hmm.... this is weird because our '71 1302 has a Park position! Ours was built in Germany - were the US and Australian semi-auto Bugs different to this? It also has a metal dashboard with no evidence that a padded dash was ever fitted.

I know it has a later 1600cc engine - I suppose it could be possible that the auto trans could have also been changed at some point but our Bug just gets weirder and weirder the more things we find out about it.

Hi,
The park feature was only in 74> on Beetles.
I've only seen one 1973 1303S Beetle autostick in Australia...
I don't believe there are any later models.
The autosticks were all made in Germany, at least the cars sold in Europe Asia, North America and Australia and New Zealand were...

If anyone wants to see the decal - with no park - I can email one to you..

All Autosticks in Australia were 1500 or 1600cc engines.
The most common are 1968 year model.. then 1969-1970-1971
