Camel velour headliner from TMI and a black canvas top were installed.
TMI door panels and seat covers were installed. To maintain the de-chromed exterior look, the dash was also de-chromed.


The engine was a heavily-detailed 40 hp Big Bore with a 009 distributor and a 12 volt generator.


The ragtop made the cover and was featured in the October 1993 VW Trends magazine.

Restoration - 1962 Ragtop

When we found this car, it had been sitting ina barn for ten years (and one year in a field). After draining water out of the engine and replacing it with oil several times—and a new set of points—we were able to drive it the shop. Unfortunately, yellow jackets that were nesting in the heater channel didn't like the change in location, and it took a few days to get them out of the shop.
A true project car, work on this 1962 ragtop was started in 1988.
