A unique edition for Belgium produced in the second half of March 1967 with special Grey Metallic paint (possibly L96D). Advertised with the new specification for the 1967 1300 and 1500s’ – improved rear suspension, ‘black faux leather trim’, front disc brakes, and the optional chrome wheel trim rings. Front quarter panel Mach 1 style stickers ‘1500 SPORT’. The advert states the special paint is available for types 113 (LHD) and 117 (LHD, deluxe with sliding sunroof). Source: D’leteren News nr. 23.

We also know of a 1500 advertised as a Sport by AMAG in Switzerland, apparently using the same VW publicity image but this time in colour. This would make both editions the first to be called ‘Sport’.
