Quality Preservation Parts product, built right here in the UK. This rebuilt 1600cc engine will fit VW Beetles built from 1968 to 2003, and VW T2 Bays built from 1970 to 1979.

Please call for availability before ordering.

If you need a new engine and you want the ultimate peace of mind, our range of Preservation Parts engines could be just what you're looking for. We're so confident in the quality that they all come with a 12 month, unlimited mileage warranty.

We do reuse some original VW parts during the rebuild, as you'll see from the specification below.

This is not a cost-cutting exercise, it’s just that in some cases the original parts are better than the new parts available. All reused original parts are thoroughly tested and checked to be well within manufacturers tolerances. We wouldn't use them if they weren't right.

You should retain the packaging in which your engine arrives and, once you have fitted the unit, use this same packaging to return the old part to us.

Once returned, the unit is checked to ensure that it is complete and suitable for reconditioning before your full deposit can be refunded to your credit or debit card.

To make the return of your old unit as easy as possible follow these simple guidelines: Place your old unit in the packaging provided and repack in exactly the same way as your new product arrived.

Disassembled units are not acceptable.

Old units will be credited, where applicable, in full up to two months from the date of purchase. Old units returned after this period will be credited at our discretion.

In this way, we – and yourselves – can help ensure that future generations will have an ongoing, cost-effective source of replacement parts for their vehicles.
