NOS German 12V Bosch Short Coil


Hello, ’67 Beetle community.

For some of you, there’s nothing like installing a correctly restored German VW 105-1 carb. For others, it’s that feeling when you realize your engine case is the correct and one year only H0. For me, it’s (after 10 years) finding the correct NOS German 12V Bosch Short Coil. For you purist, the part number is 113 905 115c.

This one isn’t for sale, as it’s going in our ’67 Beetle. We do however restore and stock the 113 905 115c.

Such an amazing find!

Wie Ist Der 1500 – 1967 Volkswagen Beetle


Readers of 1967beetle.com from around the world often submit interesting and historic literature. Just when I think we’ve seen it all, something new arrives. My Great Grandfather arrived in the USA from Germany long long ago. Sadly, I don’t speak a word of the language. Err, Das Wolfsburger?!

Can anyone provide context to this piece of ’67 Beetle history? If so, chime in below.
