Sir I would say just let the matter go.We know the real value of these cars and know how to nurture them.Some people just don't know how to appriciate things.You know and I know what goes into getting them on the road.So on a lighter note just ignore these small matters and carry on doing the great work .

Yes sir. IGNORED

One more nice VW in the club.

This Beige 66VW is a great example for originality, every nut/bolt/screw and even paint is original. Has the original Becker radio and a perfectly working sliding roof also. Only eyesore being those ORVM's

The other Blue 66VW also is good, but not as original as the beige car, but still a good example.

Wow congrats for one more bug.

One thing that caught my eyes the moment i say the pics of the beight car and that is the side (door)rear view mirrors.Are they ment for this car?I am not saying that it isn't original.It may just be a period accessory.I found a pic of a 1966 VW beetle on the net and compared and say the mirrors were different.I am attaching a pic of it.Please shed some light on this.

No offence meant on what you said.

Those are both lovely bugs. The first one as you say looks mint, I cant believe that is original paint. Besides the mirrors, I would say the stickering too can be removed.

Are you sure it is a 66?

Yes indrojit, thats why Kadam said "Only eyesore being those ORVM's" (outside rear vierw mirrors).

Incidentally the reference picture you have posted is of an 'Ultima Edicion' - dating to 2003.

My friend did not even know that it was your bus when he saw it in that garage,but he mentioned very clearly that it was having a Zen carburretor when it was involved in the fire mishap.
It may be correct that you are having a 34PICT carburretor with you /and you may have later replaced it.

If the statement in bold above is substantiated by Karl,Prabhal,etc I would say" HATS OFF"' to kadamjee.
Firstly the 66 VW sedans came with oval headlights not round.
second,the hubcaps are that of post67 models.
third, the wheel discs are 4 lugs,when 66 models came with 5 lugged wheel discs.
four,the bumpers are post67 bumpers(it should be blade bumpers with towel rails)
There may be more non original things which can be said only after seeing the interior/engine bay photos.
Please dont get angry with me for pointing these out and lament''This guy seems to know more about the car than its owner"".I fully understand and appreciate the time,money,effort involved in maintaining/restoring classic cars, but only when people make Bold and Boastful statement like this car' 'is one of a kind"" ''nut to bolt original"' etc , we are compelled to point out the deficiencies which are strikingly visible.

This car is not in India, saw it on my recent trip to the US, in San Francisco. The guide said it's a 1965 Karmann Ghia...is that right? Just posting it here for the VW lovers...

Thats a 1970 US spec Bug karl, was typing with the other 66 bug in mind and just continued typing the same for the Beige one also.

He has the original mirrors but somehow does not want to touch the car of its present settings. Even the mural stickering came when he got the car.

How did i forget to mention about Mr Nagappa's car here.

Presenting Mr Nagappa (MD of Stumpp Scheule & Somappa Group) and his 1956 oval window.

Again a very clean and period car, have not come across another better car of this vintage.

Has a 1131 cc 25 hp, reliable and rugged engines.

That's a '65 Karmann Ghia alright. And she's gorgeous! White walls and all! Great catch, Sidman!

Inrojit ORVM - Outside Rear Vew Rear Mirror - not sure if it is exact but mostly so

Mr Nagappa's car has been mentioned/captured earliar and so were the pics since the pics have been repeated I can say she is really a great car and orignal and seems to be a complete orignal unlike some of the other cars which I personally think are me-toos that blue one/its owner can safely say mine is bumper to bumper complete car - but he won't because proof is in the pudding.

Hate the stickers & OVRM's no matter what on the beige car looks cheap and needs to go centuries ago
