Flat screen, flat hood, a 1200 or 1300. I had these wheels on a 1972 1302 LS

Headlamp style started with the 1300 in the UK I thought? (but I'm no expert on Volkswagen ;) ).

The headlight style started in 08/1968 world wide ;)

The quality of the picture isn't sharp enough to get the year exactly (can't recognize the indicators on the fender).
But it is definitaly NOT a 1302 or 1303. Not only the flat hood or flat windshild indicating that, also the narrow hood.
But the metallic paint speeks for a beetle out of the Mexican production (1982-1985) and could be a special edition 'Silver Bug' (if it is silver) or 'Ice blue' (if it's light blue metallic). Silver metallic was only available on Mexicans only through the 80s

This headlight style started in August 1966 ( 1967 model year ) in US Beetles, although they still had the old-style bumpers. With these type of bumpers, the vertical headlights were introduced in August 1967 ( 1968 model year ).
From what is possible to see, this car has the indicators on the front wings. The indicators integrated in the bumper started with the 1975 model.

I think, that it has the "Weltmeister"-alloy-wheels. It's my impression. But it's definetely not a real "Weltmeister"-special model.

@kaefergarage.de: didn't have the "Silver Bug"-edition black stripes at the bottom of the sides?
