All About the Volkswagen
Henry Elfrink
Henry Elfrink Publications
Copyright 1958, this is one of the best period Volkswagen books ever published.  Elfrink knew the Volkswagen market and history, he is a good writer, easy to understand and includes many pictures. The first hundred and thirty or so pages are about the stock mechanical aspects of the car.  The last sixty pages list monthly changes to the Beetle.  There are about ten pages on industrial engines, then a detailed high performance section which includes a Dietz dual carburetor setup, Judson supercharger, and ink on the Okrasa kit.  The last section in the book covers VW and Porsche powered aircraft.
