    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together


    Mod edit: thread title changed in May 2008
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    @parapilot
    there are pics of one with a multan number (MNX) on this thread somewhere, it's well done and i think a baja is ideal for PK, however i'd suggest you stick to a "class 5-1600" class conversion and nothing higher since the "class 5 unlimited" versions are tubular chassis cars and will cost a small fortune. do note that the easiest baja class to replicate with a VW type 1 sedan is "class 11".


    @romano
    thankyou thankyou thankyou,.. i win i win i win!!


    @asad
    will post pics of the strap soon

    Hello famalik welcome to Pakwheels and VWCOP thread...
    Hope to see your car here in Rawalpindi restored to originality... You can also join the VWCOP ISB-RWP chapter once you are here and I hope you would become an active member here...

    For VW Beetle in RWP I would suggest:
    1) Khalid Ustaad for a Mechanic
    2) Babar Ustaad for Denting/Painting
    3) Muqeem and Zaheer for New Parts
    4) Pupoo for used parts

    Please join the VWCOP group on this link and benefit with having an online contact with the members and receive lots of information through our mailing list:

    http://groups.google.com.pk/group/vwcop?hl=en

    Now about ur bug: Its amazing... Any pictures of the interior and engine bay?
    Plus are you sure its a 1963? Coz the following items are not right for it if its a 1963:

    1) Tail-Lights
    2) Turn-Lights
    3) Bumpers ( Pre 68 the towel rails one)
    4) License plate light housing(Should be Pope Nose one)

    However that decklid handle sure belongs to a 1963 and is rare

    rear is easy, just play with the settings of the torsion beam. fronts can be dropped with drop springs (available from SSP in the UK)

    @ famalik





    A warm welcome aboard!


    You have a very nice car. As funkycapricorn (Arslan) has already pointed out it is having a few wrong year parts but the good thing is all is easily reversible, rather a simple matter of bolt off and bolt on a few correct for the year parts.


    Do post more pics of the interior and engine bay please.....


    Some suggestions...please lose the sticker barely visible on the side and the fog lights sunk into the front fenders.....now this would need some repairs and paint.





    @ Storm





    The stock steelies are getting hard to find in good shape.......


    Good luck
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    @asad
    i was just wondering, when they scrap a car in kHI what do they do with the wheels? any chance of getting a set of them (4 bolt)? i'm DESPERATE for original wheels on my 1303,.. it looks like a riced out VW with those horrid toyota rims on it.


    let me know if you run accross a reasonable set, cash waiting (i'll even take 2 sets so that i can get at least 5 good ones out of the 8).

    I'm sure many of you are unaware that before VW was working on the beetle, Adolf had asked MB to develop a peoples car. it wasn't too bad to look at and shared alot with the finished beetle,.. some say that VW (porsche) used this car as a template when building the type 1.


    that got me thinking,.. is it possible that my infatuation with these 2 brands is interlinked?


    here she is, decide for yourself:

    personally i think the sides profile is nearly identical to the type 1

    @Storm .... your orignal 170H article wasn't lost. I did read it and was intrigued by it as well.


    Maybe the reason that our fav Type-1s share so much with this car along with Porsche is that Dr. Ferdinand Porsche was the designer of all three and in fact, the type-1 was designed from this car in particular. Mercedes Benz 170H (W28). Google for a comparison for early porsche and VW type-1 and you'll be amazed to know that they shared the platform and many mechanicals. The shell was diff because they were being marketed to different people.

    My apologies in advance for posting this question here. But I need some support from the fellow PWers at RWP/ISB - especially knowledgeable people like storm & Romano. There's a 1975 Mercedez Benz W 116 for sale in ISB (https://www.pakwheels.com/xt_details.asp?CarID=59924) which I am interested in buying.


    Since I am located in Karachi, I would really appreciate if you guys could help me out and determine whether this car is worth taking a flight to ISB for.

    that 280 looks pretty clean and i think that if you can get it in 4 lack it's very much worth buying.
