Where are the serial numbers on a beetle, that match up? I'm just wondering about the legalities of swapping pans. Also, What years most match a 63. I've read 60-64 are pretty much the same.

On a '63, there will be one on the VIN plate behind the spare tire and one stamped on the chassis under the backseat just forward of the shift coupler access panel.

If I recall correctly, there was an change made to the front transaxle mount which occurred right around '60 or '61.

'65 went to the balljoint front end. It might work with the '63, but there may be some clearance issues as the '65's body work was clearanced higher over the tierods.

I thought ball joints were a 66 thing.
I'm sure my 65 is king.
Pffft doesnt matter when you narrow them anyways I guess.

They went to ball joint in late '65, but most '65s are k/l.
