Robin Snook’s ’67 Beetle

Robin Snook's '67 Beetle

Robin Snook, of England, contacted 1967Beetle.com, inquiring about parts for his ’67 Beetle. Eric copied me and thus began a running e-conversation between Robin and me. I was able to help with some parts. When Robin mentioned something about how he acquired his car, I thought that his story should be told.

My involvement with Beetles began when I was 15 years old.

My dad died when my sister and I were quite young. As a result, we struggled financially growing up, and didn’t have a car. My mum took driving lessons in the early 1970s and after several attempts passed her test and acquired a license to drive…….she wanted us to enjoy some travel around the UK before we flew the nest!

My uncle had completed Conscripted National Service in Germany after the Second World War and learnt about the Peoples’ Car whilst he was there. He suggested that it would be a good car for my mum due to its reliability and high build quality……so the search was on!

We hunted high and low for a decent example to buy, but they were either too expensive or trashed! Eventually, we found a beautiful Pearl White 1200 model that had been registered in August, 1967. Mum bought it for £550 (around $880) in 1972.

The Fischer’s ’67 Beetle

The Fischer's '67 Beetle

When Gary and Donna Fischer purchased Wally2, their 1967 Beetle Convertible, they began to put “him” into stock condition. Wally2 had undergone many handlings since he had been pulled from a barn—literally.

One of the things which they found was two threaded holes in the driver’s side defrost defector in the corner of the dash at the windshield. (photo of the holes)

Questions came to 1967beetle.com where Eric copied the message over to Jay. (We are a quite the team!) Heads together over the Internet, we could not come to any good conclusion. We did agree that some previous owner had a reason for those two holes so carefully drilled and taped.
