    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!...

    Sameer, it is the same one I told you about. The selling price would be around 175000.

    I was about to buy it but have changed my mind and am now looking for decent 1987-1988 LC.

    oh, it's that car. well i have to say that the price seems reasonable judging by the condition in the pics and from what you've told me. it should sell VERY fast as it is a great base car to start with for a VW entusiast who wants a super.

    @all
    1303's in bad condition are the WORST VW's to restore, so this one should be very rewarding to own & drive as it is a very complete car

    I see a knob or so below the rear screen on 1303s, is it a provision for a wiper?.

    I haven't seen that bug personally. The previous bug of the same friend was sold around 250k. Per him this one is far better than the one before.
    I have asked for more pictures of tnterior and engine bay. Let's see what it has got?

    Nice tips about the fill up.
    @Asad WD 40 or "water displacement 40" was a result of a search for a rust preventive solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. It was created in 1953. The "40" in the name denotes the 40th formulation that was found suitable for the purpose. NOW for the best part and an intresting bit of information...WD 40 is composed of ...not kerosene but ...FISH OIL!!!! Apply it to burns and the results are amazing... I read a whole list of uses for it but I remember just a few....oh and if you spray WD 40 on the bait, you can attract more fish...

    nope, that is something INSIDE the car because in the next picture you can't see it.

    Till 1946 the rims were 4.5x16, after that they were 5.0x16 till 1952. in 1952 the rim size went from 16s to 15s and stayed that way till the end.

    On the post 52 wheels (15 inch) most people use some size variation between 155R15 and 165R15 which is as close to stock as you can get with modern tyres.

    yup, but as in the case of my 68 beetle (which had 14 inch rims on it) you can also got for 195/65R14 tyres which are a little smaller than stock but fine for daily use.

    on my 1303 i'm currently running 185/65R15 (front) and 195/65R15 (rear) on toyota rims (which are too wide and incorrect bolt pattern) so hopefully i'll be swapping them out soon and fitting my EMPIs. the correct rim for my car should have the following specs:

    size: 15 inch (max)
    width: 5.5inch (max)
    offset (ET): 23-34
    Bolt patttern (PCD): 4x130

    the above spec is also fine for any post 68 beetle.

    i might have to change my front tyres as well as 185 might be too wide for the front suspension once i fit the thinner rims. so i'll probably be going for the size i mentioned in my last reply (for the front only), rears will (hopefully) stay 195 as the taller/wider tyres will help grip and also improve my overall gearing.

    that interior is VERY clean, you were right in saying that it was a well kept car. from the pics i have deduced that it is a early 73 to early 74 model.

    how do i know? the glovebox knob told me
