Re: last beetle ? what can we do (86_gti_8v)

I'm guessing 1938 was the first Beetle. Anyone can vouch for this? I know there is a '38 Beetle (not a prototype), not sure if there's any earlier.
Just did a quick research:
------------------------------------------
1934
First prototype beetle. 1000 (984) engine, 22hp, 5.8 to 1 compression ratio.
1936
1000 (985) engine, 22hp, 5.8 to 1 compression ratio.
1937
External oil cooler added to take care of cooling problem.
1938
Split Rear Window installed.
