Interesting Facts VW continued production of the original air-cooled beetle in Mexico all the way up to the 2004 model year, ending production with a special "Ultima Edicion" (Final Edition) of which only 3000 were made. This particular beetle is a 1998 Mexican production beetle installed on a 1968 pan. The only legal way to posses a Mexican production beetle in the USA is to use an early VW beetle pan and wholly restore it with the body/engine/interior/etc. of a Mexican vehicle. There were a few companies that made a business out of "restoring" older beetles with Mexican cars throughout the years. This beetle was one of about 10 done by a company in the mid west back in 2000. Beetlmex, a company out of Nogales, Arizona is still in the business of bringing Mexican beetles to the US- and is a great source of Mexican production parts for beetles.
