1961 VW Beetle, Sunroof, Fabulous!, SOLD!
1961 VW Beetle, Sunroof, Fabulous!, FOR SALE
This is a recently acquired motorcar, we've not even had a chance to detail it yet! This solid little bug just had a $3,000 engine and drivetrain rebuild by a VW specialist in Temecula, CA. This little bug performs brilliantly!! Mechanically it is excellent with a dual-port 1600 engine that has been totally rebuilt (less than 200 miles since the mechanical restoration). The paint and interior are average and it has benefited from a new stereo and speakers hidden in the glove box.
Being a Florida and California car it has almost no rust, just a very small section near the drivers door. We even tested it fill the Filler Detective to ensure it didn't have any surprises. The belly pan is in excellent condition. The glass is very good and the chrome and stainless trim are in very good condition except for the door vent window frames could be improved.
The tan interior appears to have been totoally replaced in the last few years and is in good condition. There is one small hole the size of a dime in the drivers seat back. There are four VW seat belts installed in the car as well.

1962 VW Ragtop Beetle Test Drive
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1962-vw-beetle-ragtop/ to see this beautifully restored 1962 VW Beetle for sale from Sunset Classics.
The color on this Sunroof Bug is perhaps my favorite color ever offered on a classic Volkswagen: L380 Turquoise. Amazingly the turquoise on the interior of the car is original paint! The dash face, the inside of the doors, and the area above the windshield are in the same beautifully applied coat of paint sprayed at the factory way back in February of 1962.
The exterior paint is very nice. All of the glass was removed when the exterior of this bug was painted for a very thorough job. New window rubber, new door rubber, new fender beading and new turn signal rubber were all installed during reassembly. This was a thorough restoration and the end result is the great-looking sunroof Beetle.
Please check out the full description, 2 photo galleries and more video at the link above, and then give me a call to take her home!

1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past, I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones you'll see in the BugMe videos.

1961 Ragtop Beetle rebuild
Here is months of footage all rolled down into 8 minutes of me rebuilding my 1961 Ragtop Beetle after an extensive restoration. It was off the road around two years. I didn't film the whole restoration as that could get quite boring but I have got all of the stages photographed which you can find at www.volksworld.com.
I did pop a few in at the beginning but stick with it as the video goes pretty fast!

vw beetle documentary: the shape of quality (3/3)
This australian vw beetle documentary is called: the shape of quality. This documentary focusses on the technical issues of beetle production in Australia in de early '60s.
That makes the documentary less interesting for the general public, butr even more for insiders: people who are 'into the beetle'.
For instance: it strikes me to see that during beetle production the window rubbers are put into place manually with a hammer, with the risk of damaging the fresh painted body. Also the use of a thread to push the rubber in place from the inside of the car is easy to see.
The film was directed by Fred Schepisi.
