I have a disassembled VW 105-1 Carburetor for a 1967 Beetle. This Carburetor was the sole Carb used on all 1967 Beetles destined for the USA Market. It is fast becoming scarce. It is a carb of choice for all 1967 Beetles, of course, but is a great carb for stock 1300 through 1600cc single-port engines. I have disassembled (except for the choke and throttle plates) the Carb completely in order to assess condition issues. I suggest that this Carb will need an over-sized throttle shaft or bronze throttle shaft bushings. I recommend Vintage Werks or VolkzBitz for doing any and all work on this Carburetor. The Carb comes complete with all parts (except the Idle Cut-off Valve), including both check balls, all screws, the 12 volt choke, a new throttle lever return spring and all other relevant parts. The Carburetor will need to be vatted and cleaned. Steel parts should be re-plated. Then, the Carb will need to be kitted with the regular carburetor kit (containing gaskets, O-ring, float valve, accelerator pump diaphragm and choke advance vacuum diaphragm).

Don’t tempt me Jay.. I may have to tell my girlfriend about it so I will then not be allowed any money :)
Plus over here a re-bush costs more than I dare tell her about :)
Just googled Garland Texas, do you have any hills? beetle engines there must be really understressed
I was wanting to buy it as well, just to hoard a spare. :)
Now one for sale comes up! (I did find a good core on Ebay that was not described as a “105”!! I bought it for $20 and shipping!) The fellow at Vintage Werks was kind with his time and will be getting it (along with the original distrib.) to refurbish!
Ed Fall is a personal friend. His work is top notch. We did an article with him about a year ago.
BTW…..thanks again Eric for the 67 site! It has been useful and entertaining. I have a 67 I bought from a little lady in her 80’s locally here in Helena AL. She and her late husband bought it new. It came with all paperwork and records……man did he take good care of it! NOT ONE SPECK OF RUST and ORIGINAL EVERYTHING!
You got it! Jay, Matthew and myself put a lot of love into this project. Let’s feature your ’67 when you’re ready.
