Vintage Hella 127s. I had to fabricate my own mounts to get them up over the towel bar.

Rome, no I haven't, but I have met him and have emailed him for advice in the past. George, my Beetle, is kind of a mess still. Some day I will drive him down there. I'll tell you what, I wouldn't ...

KTPhil, like I said earlier, these were a total impulse buy. Every Bug I see with fog lights is running round ones, either aftermarket or vintage Bosch or Hella. I thought these were cool because the ...

There are 2 fog light manuals in the technical archives. One is from 61 and shows the diagram for wiring. It looks like they pull the power off of the fuse box, to a switch, to a relay where the powe ...

Hey everyone. I just bought an old pair of Hella 127 oval shaped fog lights for my '61 Bug. It was a total impulse buy and I didn't think about how I would mount them to the front of my car before I ...

Interesting thought. Running them under the bumper might be cool. Very 356 like.

Thank you all for your ideas on this. I made an impulse buy on ebay this morning and bought a pair of Hella 127 fog lights that were near me in NY. They are oval shaped and in that 61 catalog, so the ...

Hey everyone, I found this on a MB website. It's the Hella accessory catalog from 1961 showing the lamps and brackets.

Thank you for your reply! I will peruse these these sections when I get home tonight. It seems like the Bosch lamps with the script are 1950s era stuff. There is so much to choose from out there.

Rmeredeth, the double washer on the float valve trick really helped. Try that and it may solve the problem. Also, I would suggest the safety wire trick. I had 3 carbs and all of them had loose inlet p ...
