Great product!

I bought a restored Pierburg fuel pump, and it’s impressive! These folks care about their customers, and are an amazing little company to work with! I’m trying to find excuses to buy from them again!

Thank you, Troy!
We are always here to help.

“5 Star”

Air-cooled Artifacts is the place to go for some parts but it is best for answers to the tough questions about the 67 VW. Eric is very knowledgeable and very friendly. Help is on the way when you touch base with him.

Great Customer Service

Eric assisted me with the installation my newly purchased ACA Pierburg Fuel Pump. Even over the phone, across 3 time zones, during a time when he was home and away from his shop.
These guys really care about their products along with their customers. It’s clearly obvious.

Sourced and beautifully built

I hired Air-Cooled Artifacts to source and restore a 25 hp fuel pump for my early Beetle. Finding one was a challenge in itself. Eric's an artist, and the best at what he does. The component works perfectly, and looks as if it came off the showroom from Volkswagen of Germany.

Another quality pump restore

When I wanted an original restored pump and Bosch coil for my 63 beetle I went with Aircooled Artifacts and I could not have been anymore pleased with what I got. So it was an obvious choice when wanting the same for my 66 bus to trust in the quality craftsmanship that Eric at ACA clearly puts into each and every pump and coil he restores.His attention to detail is fantastic. As long as I’m restoring and driving these cars I’ll be using ACA for my original restored parts.

Excellent fuel pump, amazing quality.

I purchased a 1300-1600 Pierburg fuel pump and man what a difference, I absolutely love it. Thank you so much Eric for such a great product and for answering all my questions. I highly recommend purchasing one of Eric's products.

Fit, finish, function - all good

My 12v Bosch coil and bracket were delivered promptly, and in good condition. The finish is great, and fit is spot on. Car starts and runs well. Can’t wait for springtime weather so I can give it more exercise on the road.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review.

Please reach out if we can help you again in any way.

Is the best fuel pump restore I've ever seen.


Not only was my Pierburg pump perfectly restored, but communication was timely, professional, and overall better than I have experienced anywhere in the industry. I somehow mange to mess up what should have been a straightforward insall and Eric spent goobs of his time trouble shooting then helping me by repairing the damage I had done (previous flange had been sanded down to work with aftermarket pump). Well worth the money I spent.
Many Thanks Eric!

Great product at a good price

I was looking for the correct fuel pump for my 67 and found it at Air-Cooled Artifacts. Highly recommended.

Pierburg fuel pump 1300/1600

Eric, your Pierburg fuel pump that I purchased from you recently has worked flawlessly and looks brand new. I love the original design on all my stock motors. This is the second I've bought from you and wouldn't hesitate to order from you again. Thank you for preserving these items for us.


Good morning. Thank you very much for leaving a review, and for being a repeat customer.

Solex German 30-PICT 1 Carburetor
Mark Welch
An Award Winner

At last June’s VW Concurs d’Elegance show my bug took Runner Up, stock 1958-1967, no doubt in part to the judges close up inspection of the correct Solex 30 PICT-1 carburetor that looked brand new. The other components of the top end were also from Eric: fuel pump and coil. The oil-bath air cleaner was repaired and painted by Eric. I had the generator from his grandfather’s bug rebuilt and installed in my car. Everything was top notch and I’m impressed. Now, even my distributor was rebuilt by Eric. The distributor cap was supplied by me from NOS stock. Every piece has been worth the price.

Love it and it looks fantastic! I’ll post on IG soon!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. Please let me know if I can do anything else to help your projects.


Definitely a nice restoration and adds that classic touch to my bonestock '65. Great work!! Couldn't be happier!!!

Thank you for the purchase! Please let me know if I can help in any other way.

Another Excellent Product

The rebuilt 12Volt Bosch coil and bracket are awesome. I just wish that the paint didn’t scratch so easily. It scratched when the bracket slipped as I was installing it.

These pieces of history deserve the best

Opening the box from LR is never a surprise. Everything I’ve ordered including this coil has been like jewelry. The attention to detail is of the highest standard. A pleasant experience from their website to the final delivery of product. I like supporting VW businesses that care. LR is one if those. Our Double Cab deserves to have the best. Thank you Eric and Amanda for supporting the VW community.

Thank you so much for the support, Timm.

40hp Fuel Pump

The restored fuel pump is artwork. Incredible.

Thank you so much for the support!

Perfect for my 1961 Beetle (with Alternator)

Thanks Eric for your excellent restored pump - a piece of artwork producing exactly 3 psi pressure. My initial concern on potential pump fitting issue in the alternator equiped engine is unfounded.

Kudos for the level of interaction provided when I hit installation issue caused by aftermarket pedestal’s dimension variance. That’s really comforting for customer who is on the other side of the globe like me…

I'm so glad we were able to get things sorted out. Please do reach out anytime if we can help again.

Coil arrived nicely packaged and appears perfect.


Awesome quality! Very happy with this fuel pump. It looks better than new.

Excellent quality

Having purchased multiple restored German engine components from Eric, I can tell you first hand he's the best at what he does. This 6V coil installed with no issues and completes my period correct '63 Beetle.

Just what I needed to make this project

Exactly what we need to make our 67 beetle perfect. Description, communication, product, packaging, shipping, and service exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend.

Thanks Eric!
As usual...Great product.. Great service.... Great advice!!

Thank You!!
