Period-Correct Security Device
If you own a classic VW, then there is a very good chance that your car was fitted with one of these dealer-installed security devices, designed to prevent the spare tire from being stolen. Back in the sixties, many U.S. VW dealers would add this device to the invoice for about $6 extra.
