The lights are called "turn signals".

The grilles are commonly called "Horn Grilles".

Both items are available at Mid America (http://www.mamotorworks.com)

If you're going to "restore" it, keep in mind that the '65 had turn signals mounted on top of the fenders. The style shown in the picture was used only through '63.

Apparently I had an older catalog. They don't show those at Mid America any more. It was also incorrect. Those turn signals were used 1955-1957.

You can try Wolfsburg West http://www.wolfsburgwest.com/wolfsburg_new/electrical/blinker_assemblies/5557_turn_assem.cfm

or BFY Obsolete Parts http://www.bfyobsoleteparts.com/volkswagen/beetle/Turn-Signal-Parts-p-1-c-62.html
