A Picture Review of the
Volkswagen Beetle

From 1974 to 1979

The People's Car
 

Please Note

The web site http://www.dastank.com/VW-Volkswagen-
1932-1960 which shows up on this search engine has been stolen from
my Volkswagen site. I have contacted the owner of dastank.com
but he will not answer my messages He feels that it is just find to use
someone else's work which I call stealing.
That is one site I would avoid dealing with. If he steals web
sites just think what he does to his customers.


 


 
 



 

I have owned many Volkswagen's starting 
and ending with the ones shown above.
When I started this page I thought a lot about whether or not I would include the front engine/front wheel drive models.
I decided to limit the page to the older air cooled rear engine models that
I remember so well.

 
 

 
 
A complete history of the Volkswagen Please click here.
There are many complete histories of this car posted
that I felt that I couldn't do it justice.
I'll just start it with the following.

It all began at the end of the summer of 1933 when Ferdinand Porsche was summoned to the Hotel Kaiserhof in Berlin for a meeting with the dictator.  Porsche had an outstanding reputation as an engineer. He had been chief designer for Daimler-Benz, Auto-Union, and now had his own engineering consultation firm. In a private conference, Hitler told the engineer his plans for a car.

that they would like added to this page to E mail me a copy.

Victor Ma, a Volkswagen collector from Hong Kong wanted me to pass the following along to my visitors. It has to do with 
ordering parts on line from an unknown source. We all know this can be risky but in some cases for cars like the one shown on page one of my VW web site there isn't much choice. The following is from Victor and pretty well explains what he went through. He realizes that he has lost the money that was paid out but just wanted to make sure that other people don't go through the same thing.
He is what Victor want to tell everyone that visits this page. I don't know what the answer is and we all know that most people selling parts in this way are honest but as Victor found out, not all are.
It all started when he advertised for a need part. 

I put "wanted" VW Kdf VW 87.166 Parts at many classic VW web and Mr Pedro Duran from Spain use the account take103@hotmail.com to e mail me that he got some front axle, gear box and rear hub gear from a lot of VW parts bought from Franch etc.Total Euro 5000, Because I got many Hub gear box already, so no need that 2 parts, he say the best price is Euro 4000 for front axle and rear gear box.
He show me pictures of all parts, Kdf logo and even show wooden box with parts inside and my address and a sticker with my name sticking out side of the wooden box.
He provoded me a Tel No.34 633567376, and address ,Manuel C / San Manuel Nº 3. Madrid-28011 in Spain . but because he told me that he could only use Spanish, he could not use English, so I tell my German shipping Co to call him, the Tel number works before I pay him, they talk on the phone about this 2 wooden boxes, I wanted to give payment via paypal, but he told me that he has no paypal A/C. He told me to transfer cash into this Bank A/C 
Bank name : La Caixa
Adress bank: Escofina nº19. Madrid.
SWIFT CODE: CAIXESBBXXX
IBAN: ES16 2100 4025 0622 0004 1597
I paid Euro 2000 twice in two different transaction into the same account due to the tax rate of Spain.He told me every thing and give me many nice picture, looks he got all parts.
this is why I belive it is ture, after payment on friday,( 15/6/2012 ) he replied on the same day, he told me that he belive he will receive money on 18th this month. if OK he will call my German shipping Co in their Country, Ever since that I have never heard from him, and German shipping Co at Spain office e mail him, called him imstead of reaching him it appears to be voice mail, no more reply , near 2 week already.
I know I will lose all Euro 4000, ( my Kid paid twice from HK Bank to his Bank A/C at 15/6/2012 ) I hope all VW lover can be aware of this person, he will show you all parts picture, nice picture,wooden box with your address, but all not ture.When payment is completed, no goods will be received and all attempts to contact the seller will be unsuccessful.
Anyone attempts to deal with this person should use all the caution possibleI belive many classic
Kdf VW lover will vist classic VW web.

I have been asked many times about towing a VW. In my case it was very simple.
I decided to include my instructions to this page. My Super Beetle is a standard shift so I cant say 
if these instructions would apply to an auto shift or not.
I have been towing my VW like this for two summers and have had no problems at all except
when I tried to back up. That didn't work well at all.
Towing a beetle is very easy but you shouldn't use the bumper.
There are special tow bars available at CiP1 http://www.cip1.ca/SearchResults.asp?Search=tow+bar&Search1=Search

Has a good one and is what I use. The one you choose depends on if you have a Supper or Standard beetle.
Mine is a Super beetle and the bar was very easy to fasten. You will need some grade 8 bolts (metric) the dia. of the ones you remove but longer. I used ones about 1 1/4 inches long. I also used blue Locktight but still check them from time to time.
Once the tow bar is installed,(about an hours work or less) you will need to provide an attachment point for the safety chains.
I used a 4 ft length of 5/16 chain attached with shackles. On the right side of the frame you will see a towing loop welded to the frame. It is about 3/8" stock. that works fine for that side but the left side needs something attached. I used a 3/8 chain coupling and removed one of the bolts that holds the sway bar and using a longer bolt and some strong washers bolted it on.
Seems to work fine.
You of course CAN'T fasten the safety to the tow bar itself. If the tow bar was to come loose for some reason the chains would go with it.
Once that is done I used a magnetic mount tail light assembly that I picked up at Canadian Tire. That allowed me not to have to
tie into the car wiring.
At first I placed the lights on the roof but found some scuff marks so I made a couple of brackets and mounted them using the bumper support bolts. The lights fit there just like if they were made for it.
Now with that done you are ready to tow.
The newer VW's or at least mine has a steering lock that does not lock until you remove the key.
This allows you to leave the steering unlocked but the ignition to be turned off.
If your stearing lock won't allow this you will have to disconnect the battery.
If you don't allow the wheels to turn and follow the corners you will scuff the tires badly and put a lot of strain on the steering components. 
That's about it but don't try to back up. I know that doesn't work too well. I have a dented fender to prove it.
We do tow our Bug with a motor home and have in the past towed it with a Pontiac Van.
When towing with the motor home you may not be able to tell it's back there. In fact you may not even even see it.
I have one of those small flags that are window mounted that I put in the right window and I can see the flag when towing
knowing that the bug is still back there.
Our first motor home was a 24 ft Class C with a 350 Chev engine and the one we use today is a 32 ft Class A with a 454 Chev.
One more thing. Make sure the transmission  is in netural. Guess what will happen if it isn't. Ask me how I know.
Happy towing and if you have any more questions please let me know.

Disclaimer: Please check with you local authorities before towing with a tow bar. (Flat towing)
I have been told that some jurisdictions do not allow them.
Oldcarandtruckpictures.com excepts no responsobility for the use of a tow bar.

This VW is Rick Hoeg, Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.
This car is going to be complete restored this fall for
his two teenage daughters.  August 2009
(From what I can tell this project never got underway
as of July 23 2014)

1974 Volkswagen Thing
This VW is owned by Heidi Andrews and her husband 
from Illinois.
Heidi had the following to say about her VW Thing and his 1978
Westfalia. I thought that if you're still adding pictures, you might 
enjoy a couple of mine. I have a 1978 Westfalia, in restored stock 
condition (outside has been restored, inside is original, but almost
mint condition), and a 1974 Thing.  Both are green and have
appropriately "green" names; The Pickle Bus and Senor Frogg. 
We are in the process of getting SrFrogg up to snuff in the running department. He runs, but not too well at the moment, since he sat
for about three years in a car port in Florida. He just needs some
carb cleanup and fuel system overhauling, and he'll be ready to roll.
After that, we start on the always fun process of restoration, but
since Froggy's virtually rust free, it won't be all that bad.
The PB is my one true love (shhh, don't tell my husband!), and is 
very similar to the 1976 Sage Green Westy my parents owned when 
I was a girl. Every time I climb in the PB I smile and, in no time a
t all, I'm as giddy as a kid on the first day of school break. There is 
nothing in this world that brings back my happy childhood like that 
camper does :-) My husband and I love to pack it up and take it out 
for a weekend. Even in our cold Illinois winters, we manage to
enjoy it. We sneak out to the garage where we sit in the camper,
drinking beer and playing Monopoly. Sounds goofy, but you should 
try it some time! We have such fun in the PB. We take it to local 
cruise nights and car shows, but the most fun of all are our camping 
trips together. Every family should have one.

He had the following to say about his car

Is a five generation VW. There would not be a great notice talking 
about a VW beetle. I think thousands of VW around the world are a 
five generation vehicle.
The difference is that mine is five generation in the same family.
In 1978 my Father in Law bought it. Is a mexican standard 1600 
model. He used it a few months, and then gave it to his father 
in law. That man (my grandfather in law) used "my" VW 
until he died 5 years later. After that, my wife's brother bought
the VW to his father.
He used it until 1989. In that year my brother in law sold it to
my Father.

That VW became on of the most lovely properties of my Father 
until he died on January 2003.
After his dead, I received that car as a part on his heritage
Since that date up to day I use my VW almost daily.
Rarely I give my VW to my son, when his car is on workshop for
service. (By the way I'm a professional Mechanic.
Also a Photographer)
The last member generation in been transported in my VW is 
my Second Wife's granddaughter.
In summary:
1st generation: my first wife's grandfather
2nd generation: my first wife's Father and Mother, and my
Parents. 3 rd generation: Me, my wives (the first and the actual),
my brothers, my brothers in law.
4th generation: My son. My nieces in some rarely cases when
my Father was alive and he let to use it for a while.
5th generation: My actual wife's granddaughter.
All of that five generation persons are related to me.
So that the reason why I feel some special about that car. 
The main reason why that car is so special for me is because
it was a very valued for my Father.
When he died, I began a major reworking job on my VW.
It was on shop almost 8 months.
I changed all bad or in not ok working conditions body, 
motor and transmission parts.
Re-paint and decorate it. The most interesting issues are:
I "upgrade" the engine, making it 1700 cc's from stock 
1600 cc's, increasing his power in almost 15 hp's
Reduce the stock wheel rim tires from 15" to 14"
Put a head protectors over the backs of front seats
Put a retractile seat belts on front seats.
Actually my VW is 115.000 miles (190.000 KM)
Driving it feels so good and smoothly.

Another interesting variation of the Beetle

 1983 Volkswagen Brasilia



 
 
 
 

This car is owned by Ali Fakhroo from the Kingdom of Bahrain
The Brasilia was built in Brazil, is the first Brazilian hatch back with five doors.  Most of the Brasilia were built with 3 doors (one at the back <hatch back>, passenger door and driver door).  Mine is a 5 door, and was mainly used for exports.
The car was built between the years 1974 up to 1982.  It is powered by a VW 1600 air cooled engine at the back of the car.  From the factory it used to come with dual carburetors.  However, mine has only a single carburetor now, as spare parts do not exist in this part of the world.
It shares all the identical parts of the Type 1 (Beetle).  It is actually a Type 1 with a different shell, that is, only the body is different.  Our Brasilia is currently the only one in Bahrain.  It was imported brand new in the year 1983 from the State of Qatar.
