swapping Engines from one model year to use in another model year

Asked by May 31, 2018 at 01:03 PM about the 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1964 vw beetle that needs quite a bit of restoration work from the
belly pan up.  The motor/engine however, is pristine.  I have the chance to
obtain a 1972 super beetle which requires very little restoration work, but has
head gasket issues.  Can I take the 64 engine and put it in the 72?
