New to this particular site. Have restored a Sunbeam Alpine, Ford Bronco a couple motorbikes and now a Volkswagen Beetle.

Anyway, have a 65 pan and a 71 body, according to what I have read so far it will work? WONT IT?

Now about wiring and power? the 65 was a 6 volt system and I understand the 71 was 12 volt? as I have to redo the entire wiring, and have a newer 1600 cc engine, I am assuming there wont be much issue?

Feel free to ask, inform, educate....

As far as I know it should work fine. All the wiring is in or attatched to the body, so this shouldn't be an issue at all.

Watching a Youtube show from Britain which indicates the 71 is not by any means a preferred model. Therefore, as I do intend to sell once restoration is complete, taking a pole:

Should I take the time and effort to redo the 65? or swap it out with the 71 on the 65 pan?

A '71 body on a '65 pan will usually have people scratching their heads, but as long as it's a Standard and not a Super Beetle it should be alright. Provided it's a solid build and not just cobbled together. You may have to relocate the rear body mounts though.

You will probably want to find a '67 or later swing axle transmission to mate up easily with your engine.

While the '71 isn't a pre-67 model, it's still 42 years old and they're getting harder to come by every day as well.

If you have the correct body for the 65 pan I would think it would be worth more when finished than putting a later body on it.

Thanks for your input. I do have the 65 body, pan all kinds of parts 300$, trying to upload some pictures to let you see what I am up against with it tho. The fenders need to be replaced, looks as if he wanted to do a baja style? But he has modified the front clip, hood as well which I don't like at all, trying to find similar parts/panels is making it more expensive and timely. Therefore when I found out a friend had the 71 body, thought it would be a good deal (couple cases of beer). So not into it with big money yet, that will be the finished product, just first stage, planning...

Thanks again for input keep it coming, where are those damn pictures

We used this product before on the Ford Bronco project and I thought as the seats were in good condition no tears, rips that I would try it first before entertaining the idea to spend more money. Seat bottom was red vinyl with white cloth trim (sorry no before pic)

JB Auto Supply can mix you up a custom spray bomb in any colour you like I'm pretty sure.

[/quote] Should I take the time and effort to redo the 65? or swap it out with the 71 on the 65 pan?[/quote]

I have a 66 that is sitting on a 72 pan that is a basket case, front section is solid but it has butt air conditioning in the back. Both sides.

Would I be further ahead to just replace both full sides, or just the rears? I have actually considered getting an entire new one and just tossing this one. Not really sure what step to take here. I can only assume that no matter what the body is coming off either way.
