1967 Other Makes Vokaro

The Old Oregon Motor Company presents:

1967 Volkswagen Vokaro Kit Car. This car is based on a shortened VW Beetle pan and was produced by Vopard Industries of California in the 1970s. This example was recovered from a barn several months ago and is titled as a 1967 VW. It is powered by a 1600cc flat-four paired to a 4-speed manual transmission, and drives very well after a tune-up, a new battery, and a refresh of the braking system. The car was recently fitted with Empi GT wheels wrapped with new tires, butit will need some electrical work for the lights to to be fully functional. These are open-air cars and come with no top or doors. This Vokaro is unusual for having a molded-in windshield frame rather than a bolt-on item. The basic interior is in fairly good condition with mauve cloth seats and edging wrapping around the cockpit. Seats, carpets, and side panels all look to be in good condition, while the simple painted dash shows a VW speedometer, fuel gauge, modern CD player, and unwired Sony speakers. A theft of the previous stereo resulted in some damaged wiring that affected the headlights, taillights, wipers, turn signals, and gas gauge, all of which are non-functional. The car still runs well and the brake lights work, but the wiring needs repair before the other components will function. New heater hoses connecting to the holes in the side panels have been added...with heater controls located in the standard VW position next to the handbrake. Overall the Vokaro runs, drives, and performs very well. We have put over 200 miles on the car in the last few weeks. Locals have been delighted to see it at the cruize-ins and always ask many questions. The 1600cc flat-four sits in the rear and is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine has recently been tuned-up with new plug wires, distributor cap, points, condenser, coil, and a new ignition. A new battery, Empi exhaust system, and chrome valve covers were also added. The car is fitted with a stock VW suspension, while braking is performed by four wheel drums with a new master cylinder and rubber brake lines. They have been bled using ATE Super Blue fluid. The car has new tires fitted on new Empi GT wheels.

Unique, pretty, and tremendous fun for not a lot of money. Don't miss it!
