Why are 1968 Autosticks listed as a unique model throughout the website?


Admittedly this isn't so much a tech article as it is a footnote. In 1968 VW introduced the Autostick transmission in both the Beetle and Karmann Ghia range. Along with this, 1968 Autostick models also got an IRS transmission while the manual transmission-equipped models kept the Swing-Axle for one more year. Both models got the IRS for 1969-on.

As a footnote to the footnote, the Type 3 got a fully automatic transmission in 1968 - models equipped with this also got the new IRS transmission while manual transmission-equipped Type 3's kept the Swing-Axle rear-end until 1969.
