The Original Fast ’67 Beetle Belt Change

Ken, aka “Volkswagnut” and I have gone back and forth in the past about his viral video changing a fan belt in 5 seconds. It’s just now I realized it is in fact a ’67 Beetle!

“How to change a ’67 Volkswagen generator fan belt in about 5 seconds. I was shown this trick a few years back by Reece Kelso. Kelso was the “VW” man around the Gaston County N.C. area in the 70’s.”

Happy Friday.

The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

Hey Eric... Thanks for the props. Yes a 1967 Beelte was used in the filming of the video. The car has undergone a pan off reconditioning. It's not back to original state, but mildly custom. It's named "The Blue Bomber." Ken
