My 72 Super Beetle has mis-matched doors and door handles.

The driver's door and door handle is stock for that year.  But the passenger door has a door handle that is shorter and blockier.  It is stamped 31K012.

Obviously, a previous owner put a replacement passenger door and door handle onto the car, but I can't tell from what year.  From photos in Mid America Motorworks catalog it appears to be from years 60-63 or 64-66.

I'd like to replace the door handle seals on that passenger side, but I don't know what year the door handle was manufactured.   Can anybody tell based on that 31K012 number? 

Thanks for your help.

Hey Bertman, thesamba.com has got a page dedicated to VIN numbers, paint numbers, etc. You may want to try there if you haven't already. I believe it's under the technical category. I was in there just yesterday looking up info. on a 59 that I have.Hope this is of some help! Good Luck man!

Thanks Gary, but it's not the square button.  It's round.  Does CIP sell a seal kit for that model door handle?
