    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!...

    I have a 1958 beetle that I intended to convert to a genetically modified Oval window beetle by grafting an Oval window section that I imported from the US. To complete the transformation I also have a complete dash section from the same donor vehicle.

    I realize that I don't have enuff time to do justice to this project so am offering here for sale.

    The package includes
    1958 bug, Oval window clip, Oval beetle dash section, complete with speedometer, radio grill, glove box lid, and ash tray.

    Price Rs. 225,000 FINAL

    WILL NOT sell only the car.

    The car is taxed until June 2013 and is registered in my name.

    I also have a complete ragtop clip if you wish to make it into an Oval window rag-top beetle. The rag-top clip would be sold separately for an additional Rs. 40,000

    Pls PM or text message me if you have any questions.

    Please, no dreamers, time wasters, tire kickers, low ballers or Nigerian investors. Check your bank balance, ask your wife / significant other before deciding to buy.
    I'd buy the whole package including the ragtop myself but unfortunately the last few words of your post were a gentle reminder of the NOT so gentle consequences i would have to face if i did go thru with it...

    Good luck with the sale though... Hopefully a VW enthusiast who see's the potential this deal has will get in touch with u...
    My heart is a Flat 4!! 62' VW Type-1, 76' VW Sunroof SuperBeetle... To me my VolksWagen, to you yours...

    I think it would be best if the new owner came forward himself. All I can disclose is that it is a father/son project..more like a gift from a son for his father ..58 being his year of birth!

    Thank you. It is a 1967 - a one year only model and a PIA year if you want to restore it right. The list of the one year only parts is long..many of the parts e.g the decklid is rarer than hens teeth..the hazard switch knob only costs upwards of $100!!!

    The colour is L 620 Savannah Biege.

    Yes I got it Haseeb, Doc. The project will commence once each and every bolt is accounted for. The car will undergo a full body off resto for which I will create a thread when the time comes. The expertise of Nasir Uncle will help give the project the details that would otherwise go unattended. I already have had some welcomed help from him in terms of stripping the car and storing the parts. For now, the parts for the engine are being sourced. Each detail will be disclosed in due time. Would love to get expert input on the details of the year 1957 and 1958 and what "upgrades" would need to be reversed. One can never have too much homework done!

    We were thinking the same, however unlike the Karachi folks, Islamabadi's tend to disappear whenever there is a long weekend. We could do a quick run to the Mian Jee da hotel for their famous daal...Anybody fancy that?
