SOLD — Vintage VW Engine

Hello, ’67 Beetle community. Up for sale is a later year engine built to correct specs for the ’67. (As close as possible) Feel free to comment to Steve with questions.

I have a “period correct” style 1967 beetle engine. The long block was assembled by a vw enthusiast. It is an German H case dated for ’69 the stamp; H5773312 (the next best thing) I personally sourced all the era correct parts and all engine tin. It has correct carb and distributor. Had the heater boxes blasted and powder coated they function well. The thermostat is present and works.  As you ’67 guys know lots of time and money went into this build however it was a blast putting it together! It’s ready to built up to your 1967 beetle!

Hello, I'm Eric. I started Air-Cooled Artifacts (previously, and Lane Russell). I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Nice build. To be fair, I did comment about the fuel pump being wrong, along with plug wires. :)

    1. I was under the impression that the 67 rear bumper over ride bars tapered down some toward the center. Am I wrong? I’ve been thinking that the bumper on mine was off a 66. It’s still a very impressive bug. I had a 63 in this color combo. Love it.

      1. Glen, Early 67s still used the old style overrides. What is the vin number of your car?

      2. Glen, read this definitive article:

  2. Correct. What Jay said.

  3. Thanks for the link. I think mine must be correct after all. Good news.
