Here's a picture I took of one of the 11 Beetles that were used in the Herbie movies. This example is in Gatlinburg, TN.

maybe khaddu or other delhi guys have seen it.
Which Toyota engine was it. Beetle uses a 'flat-four' engine. Cant imagine how anything else will fit in there.

My neighbour had one in German red Color...I came across another (same color, Soft Top, Convertible) at an Auto consultants place near Cathedral College in 1999, was told it was sold to Sharruk Khan, but not registered in his name....this had Goa Registration...

Goa used to have a lot of old Beetles infact they were a very common sight . Even the driving school cars used to be Beetles with 2 steering wheels. I'd really love to get my hands on the old Herbie movies if i could source them on vcd or DVD
