Scored an NOS 15’ Empi gt steering wheel locally I was the 2nd person to remove it from the box since purchased new in 1970. The person that sold it to me was the first.

Wow, amazing score on the wheel.

Not super rare, as they are out there. But, super stoked to find one NOS.
Also was able to find the correct style hanger as seen in the accessory catalog as well.

Very cool EMPI AM/FM radio. I have a couple of them myself. They are super rare. You are right, the AM only are fairly common. Do you have the knobs & correct faceplate for your 67 Bug. Sapphire pieces will work but the correct ones are a little different.

If you do not have them, PM me. I have some.

Bought this Empi AM/FM Stereo this weekend from the original owner. He said he bought it for his '71 bus back in 1973. He wanted a Blaupunkt but the dealer "wouldn't install one for me." He bought the bus from Wolff down in San Diego but thinks he may have bought this from Jack Feely in Redlands. Anyways, his wife got pregnant shortly after he bought this and he traded in the bus for a station wagon. He said he never got around to installing it. Unfortunately he didn't have any other parts Sad

One thing that's different about this stereo is that unlike Thornton's AM/FM he had and the other that's been pictured in the thread, this one came original with both AM and FM lettering.

This stereo will go along with my Riverside 500 in the L41 '67 vert Laughing

Hello all.
I don't post on here much but I just scored a pretty rare 'accessory' recently so I thought I'd include it here.

Does anyone know how many of these were made? Is the dash plaque from the first Bad Camberg show, in '79. Mine is still in its original faded old plastic sleeve - I think it must have been in there for the last 39 years as it's completely mint.

I just need 2 & 3 and my collection will be complete! Very Happy

Not Volkswagen specific, but I'd say the Hemo rally odometer I mounted tonight is quite rare. Most people have seen or heard of the Halda units, but the Hemo isn't as well known.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


It's a very early Danish rally odometer known as a Hemo Trip Taeller. The odometer has two hands, much like a clock. The longer hand rotates on the outer dial. One revolution is a kilometre, so you can accurately measure to 0.05 kilometres. The inner dial, and smaller hand does 30km in one full revolution, so hopefully the rally master has an end of leg and/or ODO zero before then! I think based on the very limited info I have, that this is a first-generation unit, from 1960. Later models have dots every 0.01km, and a mounting system that allows for putting it flat on the dash.
