Bosch Blue Coils

I was focused earlier in the week on writing an article about the different types of coils available for the Volkswagen Beetle. After further research, I realized it’s already been done; and very well for that matter. Richard Atwell has documented everything you need to know. He breaks it down by part number, which to buy, the good, the bad, the ugly and a nice summary.

“Can you buy the “wrong” 12V Bosch Blue coil? Well apparently, you can. I’ve never seen such variety in a single electrical item. I’ve collected all the information I know on Bosch Blue coils to help you find the right one. The more of these we buy the longer hopefully it will be produced.”

Thanks Richard for creating this great resource.

NOS Distributor Cap. 111-905-207 C

For anyone who’s curious, this is what the original distributor cap looked like when your ’67 pride and joy left the showroom floor.

I just purchased one of these NOS. The correct part number is 111-905-207 C.  They might be a bit hard to find but keep looking. Wolfsburg West also has a good read on Volkswagen Distributor Versions.

If by chance you’re an old German VW mechanic with a stash of these sitting in a barn somewhere, please contact.

“Offered for your consideration is my ’67 convertible Beetle with just 19K original miles. Yep, it is that sought after year of ’67. This girl has original parts.
