Service was prompt and efficient. Eric followed up and ensured a quick delivery with expert advice.
Thank you, Mark!
Thank you so much for the business; it looks great installed!
What a pairing! I needed to get the engine compartment looking, and running, as good as the rest of my '67 Beetle. I had done business with Eric in the past so I knew where to turn. Good choice, if I do say so myself. I couldn't be happier with the quality of their restored parts, function and cosmetics are far above any one else's products. I'm sure I'll be back. Thank you Eric, keep up the good work!
I've been sorting this Lotus White '67 recently, working my way to the level of correctness that it deserves. With only 78K original miles, and a prior owner's fair "restoration" it's doesn't need too much. Luckily Eric has come thru for me again by supplying the correct restored Pierburg fuel pump and 12V coil. Both are now installed, functioning perfectly and look superb. The quality is amazing, prices are fair and I'm just glad to have found him, doing his thing, a few years ago. Keep up the good work Eric! Cheers!
Air-Cooled Artifacts, specifically Eric was an amazing find! I chased issues for weeks prior to ordering a 40HP Pierburg fuel pump from this company. The hands on support was incredibly helpful and available. The product I received was gorgeous and worked instantly. My 1964 beetle runs soooo much better than it did before installing this piece of art Eric calls a fuel pump. Gone are my flooding/ weeping issues. It mated to my Solex 28pict1 like long lost lovers! Absolutely worth every single penny! I highly recommend this product and company. Thank you!
Excited to add this German coil to my car. It complements the restored Solex carb and fuel pump.
The pump is for my 1967 Karmann Ghia Convertible. It's factory correct but had been sitting for many years as a dealership display. Much of the fuel system has been replaced as insurance against future issues. The replacement pump from air-cooled is perfect!
The Pierburg pump that arrived was a work of art. Detailed to perfection in every way. It came quickly after ordering and was packaged with the upmost care to protect it while being shipped.
The pump works flawlessly and it is so smooth with the correct pressure. Seals included for installation. I know where I go when I need quality, Aircooled Artifacts. Thank you for a awesome product.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Please let me know if we can do anything else to help.
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.
Every time I purchase an item, whether a fuel pump, a decal pack or a glovebox shelf, I always get a pristine, quality product that always arrives on time and in perfect condition. It’s gray to have the piece of mind that is afforded by a quality producer/seller. Highly recommended.
Great Product! Five star service ! High Quality handmade in USA. Fits 1965 vw bug perfect
I've always been proud (bragged actually) that my car is original, which you do not see today. Even though everything on it has probably been replaced at least once, it looks like it did on the showroom floor. I was at a car show a couple of years ago and someone pointed out it had a Brazilian fuel pump. Ruined my day. When I saw Eric had these available, I had to have one. It is beautiful (and original). Eric was great with any questions I had too. Definitely recommend it!
Replaced my working Brazilian fuel pump with Lane Russell restored German Pierburg unit for aesthetics, wanting 'original', and the quality that goes with that. Crazy, but it was my wife Becky that suggested this, and found these on 1967 VW Beetle (1967beetle.com). She recognized the 'cool factor' and I followed her lead. Delivery was timely, packaging excellent, and then the pump itself -- spectacular pride of workmanship immediately evident. And now we're proud of it. Eric's communication and customer service is 'old school' -- personal, accessible, and knowledgeable.
Buying from Lane Russell is an experience.
The pump was very nicely refurbished. It looked like the actuator arm had even been replaced as I could see no wear from the previous install.
The pump output the perfect pressure to VW specs and was a very even pressure.
My previous after-market pump was outputting more than double the recommended pressure and the pressure was very 'pulsey'.
Even with 3 gaskets the pressure was still above 5psi.
I have no qualms recommending these pumps from Lane Russell.
The personal service from Eric was brilliant and the delivery to Western Australia was very quick even in COVID chaos times.
Love my German Fuel Pump. The attention to detail is second to none. Ordering from the website is easy, safely packaged, shipment arrived on time and follow-up made me know this comapny cares about their customer and product.
Fuel pump was shipped instantly and I was sent tracking information. USPS dropped the ball, shocker, but Eric was a bull dog dealing with them. He contacted me daily. I never had to look for him. Eric was more upset with situation than I was. Fuel pump arrived, well packed and in perfect condition. Couldn't be happier with it and I love his 67only web site.
Not only do they do restoration to perfection, customer support is stellar!
I thought that there was a problem with my restored fuel pump. Eric was in constant contact and ready to support me. It turns out that the pump was fine but I am glad to know that there are companies still out there who care about their customers and take pride in being the best in what they do.
Eric & Amanda,
The carburetor was way beyond my expectations. It's looks like it came straight from the factory.
I put it on and fired it up, within seconds had the mixture and idle adjusted.
I never had the correct carb on my 67 and always wanted to put it back to the way it was originally engineered.
Well now it is, and it runs perfect thanks to you!
I at first thought your price was a little high, but as the saying goes "you get what you pay for" and it was worth every penny.
This has been a great purchasing experience, and will highly recommend you to all of my VW buddy's.
