I believe it's the same as the VW part used through Sep 1952. M12 x 1.5 x 82. I have not been able to verify this on my own car though.

Here's one of the rear top shock bolts from pre-A cab 60441. It's an early '54 build but a '53 body.

Standard bolt 12 x 1.5 x 80 DIN 960 has threads 30 mm long. Threads in your photo look to be about 18 mm in the original bolt.

Yes, looks like its the 82mm version as I thought. Thanks Daryl.

It is VW part 111 513 475. The later "A" and "B" versions of this part are different length for post-1952 VW suspension, which was not shared by Porsche.
