Beanie embroidered with Beetle isometric ‘stick shift’ decal!
£12.99 Size Guide
Any retro VW enthusiast will instantly recognize this familiar 4-speed stick shift pattern, which was conveniently printed on the nearby ashtray on many cars… so you didn’t forget where reverse was! (down/left/back). We've also updated the Olive Beanie to subtle black symbol as VolksWorld customers wanted it to complement the patina look.
This gearbox layout was standard on many 1960-70s Beetles, Karmann Ghia, T2 Transporter/Camper and many others in the VW range.
Our lightweight Beanie includes a thin inner fleecy layer of Thinsulate™ that retains body heat whilst allowing moisture to escape – for optimal comfort and convenience.
And some rather more colourful, esoteric little snippets for the real enthusiast …
We’ve been reliably informed the ‘N’ (neutral) on the decal was deleted sometime in the 1970s, but when we’re not sure and welcome an evidence based reply from a VW enthusiast/archivist/boffin… so we can update this copy!
As you can see from the image these #StickShiftBeanies are finding their way to some strange settings, keep them coming in via Facebook and we'll publish the best...
Thinsulate™ is considered "the warmest thin apparel insulation" available. When equal thickness material are compared, it provides about 1½ times the warmth of down and about twice the warmth of other high-loft insulation materials. Gaps between fibers not only reduce heat flow they also allow moisture to escape.
