I got a message from a co-worker a little while ago. I'm going to his house tomorrow to look at a late super beetle. i'm only guessing right now that its post-'73 (rounded windshield).

The car has changed hands several times in the last couple of months, and I'm 1,000 percent sure the current owner knows nothing about the car. He has called me a few times in the past requesting Jeep tech info. If this was a Jeep, I'd be set.... but if you guys could share some tid-bits with me, I'd appreciate it.

this is a pic of the car. only one he has on facebook.





Thanks.
Billy

well. i got the car. theres obviously some rust, but it really wasnt as bad as i had expected it to be. some of it i'll probably cut out and repair (below rear windows and air inlets) and some of it i'll probably leave alone.

runs pretty darn strong. carb needs either a rebuild or replacement. its running very rich. so much to the point that the engine was flooding out above 2,000rpm with any throttle added. thinking float may be sticking. i turned what i'm assuming at this point to be a misture screw. turned in about 2 turns to bottom. did NOT affect the engine. (solex carb)

its titled as a '73. The only disappointment.... some previous owner thought it would be an awesome idea to toss the original dash and make their own. Soon as i can get my hands on another, i'm putting a dash back in it and putting some real instruments in it. all i have is a tach and voltage gauge now.
