April 2016


A couple of days ago there were these horrible bomb attacks in Brussels and now I’m taking the time to write the preface of the spring newsletter. Deeply moved by the incidents so close to us ….In the first place our sympathy goes to the victims and their family, the stranded travelers and everyone who went through this misery … shame on you IS, all this suffering to innocent people!  This has nothing to do with faith nor conviction, it’s a downright crime!

I was listening with incredibility to the political debate which took off. Some scapegoats must be assigned and we will know … anyway… isn’t that exactly what those terroristic idiots aim at after all ? Destabilizing our society ? It would be a good thing to join our forces on political and diplomatic matters. Then we would really show that senseless acts of violence have no use.

The stock market (except for the airline companies) reacted in a tranquil way. That’s good thing… don’t make it undermine our economy!

Let’s all take an example to our wonderful Volkswagen world… plenty of friendship and fellowship… and with the new season coming (collection cars drive just more during the summer than in the winter period). BBT is ready for a great challenge to supply all the necessary parts to our customers.  Our purchase department is making a great job !

Let’s enjoy spring time, with splendid weather and marvelous cars!

Keep your (VW) faith!

Window sash, left, each

Beetle -09/52
111 837 571

The metal profile of the window sash clamps the window (with a rubber in between), this gives the fact the metal "sash" frame is under tension for whole of its life. Metal that's under tension wear out, as simple as that... call it "metal tiredness"... so after enough years of service the tension will fade from your window sash, mainly because of corrosion at the ends (that's where it starts mainly). Your window will not go down nicely anymore, will hook and turn... time to change the window sash... and now readily available at your nearest BBT dealer!

Cargo door large lock mechanism with locking knob - repro, Grease before use!

Bus 03/55-07/67
211 841 605D

Is the lock mechanism of the cargo doors (swing doors) of your split window bus (55-67) missing or broken ? No problem, we offer a good alternative that even works. No high quality, just a spare part, but it’s better than nothing at all. The locking knob at the inside can be ordered separately under BBT ref. # 0524-510.

Collar window crank - for BBT 0518 / 0518-200 (each)

111 837 595A

This buffer behind the window winder prevents damage to the upholstery of the door panels. It’s important to install it between door panel and window winder, in the way they used to do in the factory.

Center piece rear jailbar

Bus 05/79-08/92
255 853 445

This is the missing part of our complete jail bar collection. The center piece keeps de jail bars at the rear window together. The distance is too great for assembly without centerpiece, otherwise the jail bars would miss their effect….

We like to contribute to your security as well as of your passengers.

Complete front inner left wheelarc, reproduction

Beetle -67

These inner fenders do fit all years from June 1960 ... till end of production for all beetles with  regular front axles (not for 1302-03 super beetles) The main feature is they don't have a gas flap hole and neither a brake fluid reservoir holder what makes it much easier for a repair or restoration from a Pre 1967 beetle! Bumper brackets are the late (outside) model, but our BBT ref 0829-1 will fit perfectly to this and finish of your total like a very cool piece of labor!

Beetle 1302/03, Karmann Ghia 08/68-

When a lot of torsions come to your transmission this HD side cover is no luxury. Especially with high performance engine or during off-road sessions there is an incredible torque power on the transmission housing. This cover helps to reinforce, and so saves that transmission. a must for everybody that is thinking for a serious engine tuning, or want to drive wild!

Elbow for alternator air exhaust 55Amp

Type4 -07/74
021 903 655B

Alternators for Type 4 engines have a gummi elbow to prevent overheating of the alternator. Originally these elbows were of poor quality, resulting that most of them are hardened, torn or even completely lost. BBT brings an appropriate solution with this high quality reproduction.

Rotor for distributor cap high (TQ)

055 905 225B

BBT brings you finally a rotor for your late-model Beetle in original quality, or more likely even a notch better! This is real BBT quality we use on our own cars! No substitute!

Ignition coil Beru, 6V with clamp (German)

2052-250111 905 105H

There was a time that Bosch was the only brand for the electricity of your engine. Unfortunately due to many foreign and cheaper productions, the Bosch quality got worse. We now have the BERU alternative for you, high-quality, also made in Germany… and it is the brand that we use on all BBT vehicles., if we may say so to our entire satisfaction. Beru works and Beru is strong! Highly recommended on behalf of the BBT team!

Valve adaptor for inner tube in 5-lug wheel (1)


Original 5-lug rims have a large valve lug. This “valve adaptor” is essential to replace the inner tube with modern valves on the original rim…

Side window seal with vent wing, TQ

Bus 08/67-07/79
271 845 285

Buses destined for US market use to have several vent wings in the rear and middle side windows. Temperatures are quite high at the west coast and people could afford the luxury of some cooling (contrary to for instance Italy or Portugal where the price was more important). 

As many Bay window buses are now imported from the USA we have taken this seal into our assortment so that restorations can be executed in an authentic way.
