VW Bug steering wheels

Some say it’s the most important part of a car as it’s the bit you sit looking at and hold onto at all times. There’s no doubt the Volkswagen Bug steering wheel is important, and the stock Bug steering wheels are a classic bit of VW design in their own right. Acknowledging this, VW Heritage offer a wide range of classic Bug steering wheels to suit all tastes. For restorations, we offer the superb OE-style Flat 4 steering wheels, in different colours and with the classic Bug ‘D’-shaped horn ring and Wolfsburg crest. We also stock top quality reproductions of the classic VW Bug EMPI GT steering wheel and Speedwell wood rim steering wheel, along with a range of VW Banjo steering wheels and delightful VW Bug horn pushes – both popular accessories in the 1950s, and widely used on coachbuilt VWs.

For owners wanting a different look, we stock a large number of Grant VW steering wheels and Mountney Bug steering wheels, ranging from classic VW wood rim steering wheels to metal flake and chain link steering wheels, in sizes from 10-15 inch diameter, plus a comprehensive range of Bug aftermarket steering wheel fitting kits and accessories.

VW Beetle History

History of the VW Beetle

The vinyl “rag-top” sunroof was now dropped on 1963 export models, and replaced with a steel sliding roof, however the rag-top was still available on standard models. A new number plate light was added, the front indicators were also increased in size. Inside, VW dropped the horn-ring from the steering wheel, and thumb buttons were now employed for the task. By this time VW had becomes Germany’s biggest company, taking 42.4% of domestic market car sales, and producing over a million cars in 1963, with daily production off the now automated production line reaching 5,229. A total of 685,769 cars had been exported making VW the worlds largest vehicle exporter.

1964 was another landmark year in terms of exterior changes. The front windscreen grew another 28mm upwards, the rear screen was 20mm higher and 10mm wider. This time round the side windows grew too, with thinner A,B and C pillars this allowed the side glass to expand in all directions. The divider bar between the ¼ light and the main drop glass was slanted now, as opposed to vertical, and the window lifter mechanism was changed to a cable operation.

The engine deck-lid lock is now a self locking latch, as opposed to the previous T-handle. Heater controls are simplified with two levers by the handbrake, one for hot/cold and one for air distribution. Volkswagen invested 154.4 DM in the new Emden plant, and expanded their Port Elizabeth plant. Finally the law suit between the Sparkarte holders and VW drew to a climax, with the decision falling in the favour of the savers, each of the 89,000 savers were given a choice of a 600DM discount of a new VW1200, or a 100DM cash payment, as a result 18,000 cars were delivered, and 41,000 compensation payouts were made.

VW also charted 68 specially designed ships to ship 470,000 Beetles to various export markets, with the majority heading to the US. In 1964 VW brought a 50% holding in the Auto Union Motor company, including it’s new manufacturing plant in Ingolstadt, 18 months later they would buy complete control.
