For Sale 1500 Single Port "gold" engine
Purchased this long block earlier this year from AirDubs with the intention to put it in my project car but I went for a new 1600twinport with twincarbs.
It has covered roughly 3500Miles according to Airheads.
Still on the pallet it came on...
Figured that as the cars about to go for primer I should write up a build thread somewhere.
Bought the car back in October and as it was sold to me, it was a 1500 68 Bug that seemed solid and at the time was cheep ish.
The colour was crap though ;)
Whoever decided to paint it black and...
After years of trying to score a NOS 1967 one year only 6 volt starter, I've managed to get one of my knackered ones completely refurbed.
Chuffed is not the word!
Not cheap but hopefully will be worth it. I'm going to get another done to keep as a spare whilst I can :)
Hi, i have a 1500 vw beetle and its single port. My mate said he has a couple of webber carbs from his mini laying around, I want to change to a twin port but i dont want my mpg to get much more worse. At the moment i think im doing about 24 mpg, how much lower could it go as a twin?
Since finished rebuilding my 1500SP engine + upgrading to 1600 dual port, I have several bits left over. Most are from 1500 that was running brilliantly but had high mileage so was ready for rebuild.
Any questions welcome, can tell you a lot more about specific bits.
I've got a spare case for sale, bought only as a backup in the event my case was not "rebuildable", but thankfully it is!
It was bought from a guy on volkstorque called Phil1bug last year.
I was told it's been checked and measured, no align bore needed and engine did not suffer any end...
In process of trying to change to dual port. My 1500 single port runs with original 30 PICT 2.
Anyone got a suitable 34 PICT carb with manifold suitable for dual port 1600?
My 30 PICT 2 ran fine, was fully stripped and cleaned about 1.5 years ago with all new gaskets.
I have a 6yr old Remtec 1500sp with Solex/Brosol H30/31 and Bosch centrifugal distributor,electronic ignition.
Starts and runs fine altough MPG could be a little better.
In the future I want to change to the original stock carb/dissy combination.
Looked up here on the forum and found...
1968 1500 Beetle....Great all round condition
1968 1500 Beetle Price: £1650
Excellent condition 1500 Beetle. As you can see from the pics the bonnet and some of the seams need a little attention but this is just cosmetic. The inside pic shows the quality of the areas that really count. The...
I've been having engine problems with my 1600, so it's heads are stripped down. So I needed another engine to keep me going for a couple of weeks, and bought (as far as I can tell) a mid sixties 1500. The seller said he'd put the 12v (200mm clutch) flywheel from a 1600 (obviously 12v) on it...
'68 1500, loads of custom features like de-chromed, lowered/adjustable beam, one piece/perspex windows, vented steel "eyebrow" decklid, lucas indicators, T-bars, autometer tach, moon discs etc etc.
Is an original 1500 so front discs, engine runs well and drives nicely, has a 009 dissy, think it...
A pair of original rear kick panels taken from my 1500 Beetle (early 1970) with a custom cut 160mm speaker hole.
The vinyl is not damaged however there is some rust stains on one side which would not clean off with minimal effort.
You will see from the pictures that the hardboard is perished...
**THIS CAR HAS NOW SOLD**
We've got a baby due soon so it's time to buy a family car. £3750 or I would consider a swap for a 2004 - 2006 Mk 5 Golf (must be 5 door and ideally SE spec) with cash your way.
