OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Item Features
The idea of building a car for the people was not new - but the success of such models had always been limited. At least until 1946- when the Volkswagen factory began building the first Beetles for public consumption. From then on the car just ran and ran. Volkswagen Model Documentation begins by telling the history of Volkswagen after the war - how the British under Major Ivan Hirst rescued Porsche's concept from the rubble- and how Heinrich Nordhoff then steered the company to worldwide success. Joachim Kuch then examines in detail the genesis and history of each Volkswagen model- beginning with the Beetle and Cabriolet (Types 1 and 151) through the Karmann-Ghia (Type 14)- Thing (Type 181)- Transporter (Type 2- including air- and water-cooled- Campmobile and Westfalia)- Type-3 (Notchback- Squareback- Fastback- Ghia)- Type 4 (411 - 412) and 914 (4- and 6-cylinder). Also included are separate sections detailing the important dates- changes- and milestones in each model's production run. Packed with photographs- quotes from press and test articles of the time- and information from internal Volkswagen documents- Volkswagen Model Documentation tells the comprehensive story of all the Volkswagen boxer-engine models.
