- Additional Information
American Autowire Classic Update kits are designed for projects that require more circuits than would have been available in an original chassis harness. Each kit is designed to include all the basics needed to rewire a vehicle from headlight to tail light, and in the case of our Volkswagen Beetle kit, is designed only for vehicles using a 12 volt electrical system.
This kit includes several variations of wiring diagrams for various model years of VW Beetle. Model years 1962-65, 1966, 1967, 1968-69, 1970-71, 1972, 1973, and 1974 each have their own version of wiring diagram included in the instruction manual (also available as a PDF online).
