Driven by the private eye (Jon Polito) who follows the Dude around. In this scene a blue/purple Beetle can be seen among the traffic outside, could this be him? :think:

Last thumbnail has elephant foot taillight, but I don't think it is related to this vehicle...

Ingo, when did this color introduced?

I guess, it's the "saphireblue" from the modelyear 1971.

That's what I thought :D

Don't you want to look the extra thumbnails I added (at the top)?

@G-MANN: Okay, I am at home, I found the taillight from third picture does correspond to 1971/72 model year. As I mentioned above about the last picture doesn't match due to different taillight.

:??: About the last thumbnail?

Yes, also for me it looks, like the Beetle there is a different one, a 1973+ version with the "elephant foot"-tail lights.

P.S. You were talking about the third thumbnail, too: no, I don't think, that this one shows a different car. I think, you can see there the US-version (I don't know, if original or aftersales market) of the smaller tail lights. It has a chromated house and side marker-lamps on the outside.
These US lamp-houses are still in production (I think, in poor quality from Brazil or Taiwan), because there are European VW-freaks, who wants to have them for "pimping" theiy Typ 1. The original ones of the 70ies weren't sold outside America.

Yes, I realise now the Beetle in the last thumbnail is not the same one, I just thought it was a funny coincidence since this private eye in a blue/purple Beetle is supposed to be following the Dude around.
