Volkswagens Collection

Last updated on September 5, 2021

Today’s cars in the hood is a collection of Volkswagens that were spotted by Sandy Bettelman in front of a home in Bel Air. ¬†Thanks for sharing Sandy.
This is a nice collection one of each. Thanks for riding along. Frank

This Volkswagen is a 1958 Bug done in Black with 1960 taillights.   This is the first year of the larger windshield and larger rectangular rear window.  Power is supplied by a 1200 cc 1.2 L flat 4 with 36 HP.

This is a 1972 Karmann Ghia coupe done in either Willow or Sumatra Green.  Power is supplied by 1600 cc 1.6L flat 4 developing 49 HP.  The large square-section bumpers replaced the smooth round originals, and tail lights were enlarged in this year.

This is a 1981 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia camper done in Pastel White.  Powered by 1970 cc  2.0 L developing 70 HP.   A fact, I did not know Westfalia made campers for other vehicles other than Volkswagen.  The name Vanagon was derived by combining van and station wagon.
