    Regards
    Faisal Khan
    Welcome on board here!

    I have just responded to Munawar Sb's email and cced all concerned too. Pl add to the discussion via group email so we may all consolidate ideas and have our agenda ready to present to the Sailing Club Admin. Hopefully, if we can coordinate, the four or five of us would try to meet the Club Admin along with Munawar Sb.

    To most people, all VW bugs are the same. To a VW nut, every single nut, bolt or part is year significant.

    The front boots are different on (not going into the finer details):

    -pre 1967 Beetles......longer front bonnet
    -Post 1968 Beetles......shorter front bonnet on the standard and deluxe versions (excluding Super Beetles)
    -1302 Super Beetles......these are 1971 and 72 vintage. Shorter, bulbous front bonnet.
    -1303 Super beetles......1973 to 78 vintage. Similar but not the same to the 1302. Front profile almost the same.

    The headlights and tail lights are different amongst years. Again this is a long story.......simplified:

    Headlights.....slopping on pre 67 models (like you see on the silver 65 here) or upright like you see on the rest of the cars.

    Tail lights:

    -Pre 1961. I would not cover now.
    -1962 to 67 (plus Standard Beetles uptil 1972) oval tail lights
    -1968 to 72 (excluding Standard models) 'tombstone' tail lights
    -1973 onwards.....'elephants foot' tail lights.

    Hope that answers your query.

    Have seen your thread....shall respond there as well.

    Are you able to get a "kabli" engine??? If so from where??? According to what I know, imported VW engines do turn up occasionally at Shershah. Most come in as lots or occasionally as an odd piece. Nowadays it is getting very very difficult to come across these however.

    We used to get lots of industrial VW engine till some time ago. I guess most have been put out of service now thus this is becoming a rarer by the day occurrence. If you get an industrial VW engine, there are good chances you end up with a good unit. Most of these were run as backup units coupled to emergency Fire Fighting pumps on ships and such. Since fires do not occur everyday (thankfully!!), there was a good chance to have a 'like-new' engine.

    Other industrial units which came in saw use powering generators, water pumps and other applications. Its ones luck how many hours (as opposed to miles!!) of use each engine was subjected to. Anyway, since these engines ran at more or less constant/stable RPMs and were serviced regularly, most are super clean as compared to an engine taken off a running car.

    If you are lucky enough to locate such an engine, I shall say go for it. They do need a thorough checkup though, to judge internal condition and likely damage caused by the journey during which they were thrown around (literally) as scrap. BTW, industrial VW engines are identifiable by a variety of minor differences so make sure you discuss here before you purchase.

    On the other hand, overhauling your existing engine is not a bad option provided the starting unit is not damaged/worn out too much and you have a sensible mechanic handling the rebuild (or you yourself are sensible enough to knock sense into him during each stage of the rebuild)

    @ Mods

    My text disappeared when I posted here. I had copy pasted before posting (due to previous lessons on PWs) so I tried to post the same again but got a message to the effect of 'your text would be posted after approval from the mods'

    How long do I have to wait?? Am not at all happy.

    You may want to check with shops that sell alloy wheels and new tyres for Hondas. If they don't have them in stock, leave your phone number or get theirs and check back. A lot of owners change to alloys and Jap tyres and part exchange theirs with these shops. A good set of Eurostars would cost from Rs.8,000 upwards. I bought a set for 12,000 but they had only done 65 km.!
    Invest in precious metal.....buy a Volkswagen!
