Restored Genuine BOSCH Short Coils

'67 Beetle short coil

Genuine BOSCH Short Coils for ’67 Beetles. Professionally restored and measure the proper resistance (in ohms) as well as spark. Each coil is tested in my own ’67. (Fits Beetles ’67-’74) VW part number: 311- 905 -115. Quantities are limited, as good working cores are hard to locate.

I can also restore your own unit (both 6V & 12V) as well as offer a core exchange Please email for more detailed information.

A general note
Coils basically have no moving parts other than electrical current. The only way a VW coil will go bad is a sudden excessive surge of electricity that could fry the coil windings. Another way would be crossing the positive and negative wires to the coil. This will fry the wire loom and cause a break in the interior loop of the coil.

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!

Eric, here is some info the die hard 67 owners will love. Starting in October 1966 with chassis #117 207 566, the 12V coil on the 1500cc Beetle now has two spade terminals at terminal 15 (previously only one). We can add coils to the early vs. late Beetle parts list.

Eric, also the 3 little numbers stamped on the coil are a Bosch date code. As an example, mine has a code of 612. 6 represents 1966 and the 12 represents December. So the first number is the last digit of the year(1960's), next 2 numbers are for the month. January would be 01, February 02 and so on. The Bosch date codes vary from decade to decade, but its pretty simple to remember the 60's code.
