    "Herbie"


      

    This 1963 VW is easily recognized as "Herbie" The Love Bug, from the Walt Disney movie filmed in 1968. The car
    pictured was built as a tribute to the famous car. The original Herbie that was used in the race scenes was equipped
    with a 1720cc Porsche Super-90 motor rated at 9ohp DIN. The engine in this Herbie is a 1915cc VW motor with about
    110 hp and uses the original Porsche fan shroud, oil filter and Zenith 32NDIX carburetors. The transmission is a "Pro
    Street" model with a late 4.12:1 ring and pinion for better highway cruising capability.
