    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!...

    @Sabiho7, pls don't buy from a mechanic. Yr best bet is to trawl the ads on PW and other websites. Beetle owners can sometimes help you find an orphan. You can also post yr request on the Facebook/VWCOP page as well as our Google groups site. Karachi cars WILL need a frame off; the finished product will to a great extent depend on the panel beaters expertise. We can help by sending you pre cut and stamped floor panels from Rawalpindi. We can also supply you with the frame to body rubber seal.

    its a 68 economy 1200cc. i just got its engine overhauled as it had sealed due to no engine oil. earlier the tapot kit had probs thus engine oil leaked alot. now tht is solved. the engines sound has improved, car aint leaving any smoke anymore..
    the engine aint giving probs now.. bt other probs hv started to appear. like on the 2nd day of eid the condenser gave up, had to get a suzuki one installed.
    the mechanic claims the carborator is putting to much petrol in the engine... causing it to b over.. its happened once tht i open the engine lid d petrol ws leaking frm the carb..
    all i want tht the car cn act as a daily driver. nt gv me these kind of probs..

    Holy smokes it looks great. Needs a slight drop from both ends. What's the story behind the 1641cc?

    Yup... It needs to be dropped at least 2 inches i reckon...


    The story behind the 1641 is that this 1303 came with a 1300cc originally and during its time here was swapped with a 1200cc... Dont know why as there is no scarcity of 1300cc motors or parts at the kabaria's...

    Since i bought it, it felt way too underpowered for my liking and luckily i came across this gentleman name Aamir Tirmizi who happened to be swapping out this 1641cc from his car with another 1600 having hydraulic tappets... i drove his bug while the engine was still in it and fell in love with the performance...

    Its currently running 87mm pistons and crank is at .50mm... Carb is a 28PICT with larger jets and will be swapped with either a 30 or a 32 PICT one...

    Yes, at least 2'' inches.

    Woah, sounds really good. Any big plans for it? Engle cam? Merged headers?

    A bigger carb will do nice. Last time I visited Iqbal at Cheap Autos he had a few brand new ones left, Solex's to be exact at 12K a pop.

    Nope... No plates... The Rims are 6" wide and wouldnt have fit if there was an adapter plate...

    Had atleast 2 holes in each drum filled and then re-honed to adjust 5 bolts... New studs on all corners...

    No plans as of now for changing the internals... Just a bigger carb, simota air intake and plugs along with plug wires to be changed... 12k a pop is a bit expensive... Khalid sb has a few bigger carbs with him... lets see if we can re-furbish one and work with that...

    The Simota air intake won't give you any performance gains. It'll just make a not that good of a sound while accelerating. I would suggest you stay with the oil bath cleaner.

    Yes, 12K is a bit high. Good luck with that!

    Iqbal uncle does have bumpers coming in about a couple of months, I think he told me 10-12K for a pair. I have to reserve one pair for myself once I get the chance to go there.

    I'll ask for the trim set too.
