1966 Volkswagen Beetle with 2187cc IDA motor 4;37 close 3&4 gear box Volkswagen bug drag racing on the 1/8 mile drag strip racelegal.com. The Volkswagen Type 1, widely known as the Volkswagen Beetle or Volkswagen Bug, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured automobile of a single design platform anywhere in the world. The same body appeared during 1966, with a 1,300 cc engine in place of the 1,200 cc engine: it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that the Beetle acquired an obviously curved windscreen. The flat windscreen remained on the standard Beetle.

VW drag racing, Outlaw Turbo class, BUG-IN 35, 2010
VW drag racing from the Fontana BUG-IN #35. This is the M-Spec Motorsports Outlaw turbo class, which is also run at the Irwindale Drag Day races. Racers in attendance included Roger Crawford from Heads-Up Performance, in his Nitrous-powered Karmann Ghia, Hector Urias(R.I.P.) running his VW Beetle with the Type 1 transmission, Eric Calabrese in the Red Baron Pro Mod VW, etc. There are also a couple of license passes in this video. Other VW drag racing clips from the event being posted later.
VW drag racing: Tar Babe, Underdog, Dyno-Soar, Hater Maker, BUG-IN 35
VW drag racing passes, including Jon Schweers in the former Dan Lawson CE notchback, debut of the VW Paradise Hater Maker VW Pro Mod beetle(?), with Kris Lauffer behind the wheel, making TNT passes, and Mike Cruz in the insane Nitrous-powered VW single cab bus. Is this the fastest Volkswagen bus on the planet? He's running deep into the 11's, with lots left. Trick or Cheat takes the wheelstand title of the event, with Larry Hanson getting air coming out of the waterbox. R.I.P. Les Navales, from the Trick or Cheat team. Jesse Hardin also makes a pass, in the blue VW Der Renn Kafer Cup bug, with Shawn Geers crewing. This VW drag racing video wraps up with the Fleming and Aronson Tar Babe, Underdog, and Dean Lowry D.D.S. Dyno-Soar cars all squaring off against each other. These VW bugs have been meticulously restored, but mechanical problems made it rather anti-climatic. Ultimately, it was Lee Leighton, at 80 years old, who really put the hammer down in this VW nostalgia drag racing segment. http://www.DragRacingTV.com
