    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!...

    ^^^Thanks for the detailed pictures @rebel. It surely is a treat to watch these details on her. I maintain, SHE NEEDS SAVING!!! And she is very much there to be saved still, only if the stubborn owner that mechanic lets go of her to someone who could love her right.

    She ought to be a semaphore model as she is LHD as was pointed out by @nmshaikh but then after looking at this shot, I am not too sure...if she really is or ever was.

    Did you talk to the owner about the possibility of letting go off her? Even if you did and he said NO, what is your personal assessment, would he ever consider letting go of her in future if offered with the RIGHT price?

    A later year motor, in molested state. It looks to me as a 1200cc motor probably from early 60s. Did you check on the flange for the motor identification/number? Note the early 6V Dynamo and the Oil Filler Neck with the matching flange!!!

    Note the Vent Wing Latch Position and the Original Huff Ragtop Latch Handle. The Sunvisor and the mirror are correct for pre-60.

    Ragtop is surely Original. The ICE PICK outer door handle and this SOLID Thick Body Trim is another pre-60s feature.

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -306538

    And this street marked with the arrow is where he lives...the owner that is...last house on the left..."hum saray tau uncle jee hi kehtay hain" said the guy nearby whom i asked.

    so anyone who wants to go molest "uncle jee" can try their luck here

    @reezvan..no i didnt talk to the owner...i dint want to irritate him more than he already is...well i did WANT to ...but i thot it best not to ...probably if one goes in a nice pristine VW and makes him a offer beyond what he thought possible he might consider parting with this first wife of his...besides, the way the kids in the street told me as i snapped pics "ye nahin baichain ***" showed he was made a few offers...i neither had a bug nor the money to be in a position to go talk...

    oh and no wasnt expecting to find the decklid unlocked...dint plan ahead and so no engine number pics sorry... thats all the info i have...extract all you can from them

    Thanks for the tip, I saw what you suggested to see...I will have to be sure by standing next to the car before I could pass on any verdict. But yeah, the faded paint may have a story to tell afterall.

    Default Anatomy of VW Part Numbers

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP) - genericpartnumber
    There are probably some exceptions to the part numbering system, but the generalizations below can be relied upon in most instances:
    VW part numbers are composed of nine (9) digits.
    The first 2, and sometimes 3, digits relate to the VW Type and Model and/or Version of vehicle that the part was originally* manufactured for. (*Parts originally manufactured for one vehicle were often subsequently used as standard equipment, or replacement parts, on another Model and/or Type vehicle.)
    TYPE 1 Model Numbers:
    11 = Standard Beetle
    13 = Super Beetle
    14 = Ghia
    15 = Beetle or Super Cabriolet/Convertible
    18 = Thing
    TYPE 2 Model Numbers:
    21 = Van
    22 = Microbus
    23 = Kombi
    24 = Panel Van/Samba
    26 = Pickup
    27 = Ambulance
    TYPE 3 Model Numbers:
    311 = Fastback
    315 = Notchback
    361 = Squareback
    The 4th digit in the nine digit series corresponds to a Main Group Part Category. The Main Group Part Categories are as follows:
    1 = Engine
    2 = Fuel, Exhaust and Heating System
    3 = Transmission
    4 = Front End
    5 = Rear Axle
    6 = Wheels and Brakes
    7 = Bumpers, Levers, Pedals
    8 = Body
    9 = Electrical
    The 5th and 6th digits indicate the Part SubGroup (an itemized listing of Part SubGroups is not available at this time).

    Digits 7, 8, & 9 combined are an arbitrarily assigned Component Number. Digit #9 can also be an indication of what SIDE the part is for, if the part is side specific. Even is RIGHT side, odd is LEFT side.

    9 digit VW Part numbers are sometimes followed by letter combinations (a Modification Code) that indicate options or modifications for that part (i.e. parts that come in different colors or sizes). For example, a certain part # may be superceded by a newer (better) version of that part, so it ends in a suffix "A" for the improved part. further improvements result in a "B", "C", etc. All these parts fit the designated application, but the suffix tells you what "generation" the part is.
