You have to get rid of the fresh air vents on the front quarter panels behind the front wheels. Those were introduced on the 1950 VW sedans. The fact they weren't built on Type 1 floor pans is a whole other issue that is harder to fix.

There's actually a few other differences, but it would completely wreck the sets you have on offer.

Most visible is the bumper; it is a post-war design. I'm talking post-1949.

Here is a video of a Type 82e:

And using the hand crank:

This vehicle is from the Bulge Relics Museum in Belgium.
