    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!...

    Usman,

    The blue one is a 65/ early 66. It seems in nice shape for a 40 plus year old car. Will need more pics to let you know more, engine bay, dicky etc etc......

    I cannot quote a price however...... lets see the owners demand...if its for sale. It may be reasonable.

    The orange one may be anything from a 68 to a 72. Its a standard model version. Some parts have been changed, like the bumpers. This car would have had the older style thin bumpers.

    If you have more pics I can tell you more. Snap a few shots from the sides, interior (showing the position of the interior roof light and the heater ducts on the floor etc. And pics of the engine bay for an assessment.

    @ all

    Know of two such project bugs in Karachi. Both complete and excellent base for a project resto. Anyone interested??? Preferably from karachi??

    Have some high reso pics of one. Will post when/if I downsize them. If someone is really interested I can mail them the high reso pics.

    Best regards.

    Btw

    The demand for the orange bug seems reasonable.

    The pre 67 beetles are the 'in thing' in the rest of the world. However we here in Pakistan follow the opposite trend and consider the post 68 cooler.

    Ahhh well...

    in deed. squared bumpers, round tail lights, plastic dashes, fat bonnets. no good. frankly in my opinion, most beetles after the flush in front lights look average, at best.

    @ Usmansiddiq:

    A little bit about fuel gauges....

    devilspassion has already beaten me with his explanation about the gauge in the orange bug being in the speedo.

    But heres a bit of info to share here:

    The beetle got the fuel gauge as standard equipment in the year 1961. This means the 62 models got them. Before this the bugs had a fuel reserve tap on the front of the cabin near the pedals which could be flipped to use a quantity of fuel in case the level ran low.

    This means the pre 62 models could only have fuel guages as accessory items!

    Even after 62, the standard models continued to get the fuel reserve tap only. This continued right uptil 1972. Romanos white 1970 standard lacks a guage too and came with the reserve tap only.

    From 1962 to 1967 the fuel gauges were mechanical units attached as a separate unit to the left of the speedo. An interesting exception we saw was the Made in Australia beetle rescued from Karachi which had the older style but electronic fuel gauge.

    In 1968 a new electronic fuel gauge was incorporated into the mid of the speedo. This setup continued till the end of production.

    The orange bug is a 1200 but not the most basic 1200A version. The giveaway is the rear view mirror which is of the detachable type seen on post 68 bugs. (This detaches if knocked hard....a safety feature in case of accidents).

    Only the most basic 1200A models retained the old type pre 67 mirrors which were fixed on by three screws. Romanos Bug is again an example.

    Im guessing that the orange bug in question came with a fuel gauge from factory. Its in the mid of the speedo. Of course there is a possibility that it was ordered with the car as an accessory (rather a neccessity!) or maybe the whole speedo was changed by a previous owner.

    One interesting fact. VW speedos have the actual month and year of production stamped onto the back!! Its a bit hard to spot but its always there.

    Best regards.

    @ ali ashraf

    WOW!! Romano should see this bug!

    You are one lucky person to have this gem. I would love to see it in person sometime. Do you know of your cars history?? It seems like a one/two owner carefully owned example.

    I think you had posted the pics before too??

    @msm

    You meant by 'later models' the earlier models, right??

    Best regards.

    Thanks for the compliment. I bought this beauty from an eccentric old man and a true beetle lover who also happens to be my neighbour. He had this car imported from Brazil in 1977. Was not willing to sell it but I finally convinced him (which he regrets to date).

    No I had not posted the pics in this thread before.

    You're most welcome to see the car in person if you want.
