Beetle Exploded View

I’ve received a few emails recently asking if I have any Volkswagen exploded view photos. This is what I have from past archived VW literatureYou can download it below.

Photographer: Unknown.
If anyone knows more on the history of this photo, please let me know and I’ll update the information in this article.

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.

    If I am correct, this picture was taken by Volkswagen and it was used in a commercial or a brochure, it was taken to demonstrate the simplicity of the Volkswagen and the availability of Volkswagen parts. They took many pictures like this with different years and different layouts of all the parts, but this one is a 1967.

    1. Thanks Karl. I’ll keep this info inline so readers can learn about it.

    2. I don’t believe this one is a ’67. Wrong decklid, white steering wheel, spot on front tunnel for heater control knob (rather than levers), bumpers have overriders but no upper bars, headlights are pre-66, I *think* the door handles are wrong.

      1. Marius,
        I love that you’re already a pro! Keep it up.

  2. I got a rare ’67 Beetle, Right hand drive , imported from Germany in ’66 to South Africa. Clutch needs doing and would make a fantastic re-furb job. Only $2 600 , I have all the original paper work.
    I live in Cape Town , South Africa.

    1. Very nice! I just emailed you. Let’s connect.

  3. Its a 1965. VW also did this same photo for 1966. They changed the wheels and hubcaps, interior, shocks and etc. I can email you the photo Eric . I have yet to see one for 1967.
