Mk1 Autohaus has been chosen to be an official licensed partner of VW Classic Parts in Germany. Starting in 2006 through our constant search for hard to find genuine parts around the world, we began working with VW Classic Parts. Over the years we have been working closely together to increase our knowledge of essential Mk1 parts that are largely ignored by the mainstream marketplace. VW Classic supplies parts that are no longer regularly available through the local dealer. These are in most instances discontinued Genuine Parts, but furthermore offer spare parts from Mexican and Brazilian Volkswagen production as well as reproductions of highest quality made in Germany. Whether you are restoring your Mk1 to factory original or just want the comfort of knowing that you can trust your replacement parts, our partnership with VW Classic allows us to help you keep tradition alive by offering a growing line of discontinued genuine, OEM and licensed high quality German reproduction parts.
The History Behind VW Classic Parts:
The Classic Parts Center was founded in 1997. It emerged from the effort of the Volkswagen AutoMuseum in Wolfsburg to supply vintage Volkswagen models with spare parts that are no longer available at Volkswagen dealers. In 1995, the AutoMuseum took over the spare parts stock of a Volkswagen importer and started to establish a spare parts program for classic Volkswagen models. The range was permanently extended and the takeover of discontinued parts from Volkswagen Genuine Parts Division's regular program was added. By October 1st, 1997, this department of the AutoMuseum was adopted by the Weser-Ems-Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH, a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG. The name Classic Parts Center was introduced and the professional sale of spare parts began.
