'67 Beetle Accessories

Submitted by a fellow 1967beetle.com reader in Germany, this unique ’67 Beetle accessories literature is worth a look. Who knew Volkswagen of old was pushing innovation in such cool ways so long ago? If only I could go back in time and purchase new one of those Volkswagen tissue boxes. Or, how about a few Hazet toolkits!

The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

Eric Shoemaker

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

This was really interesting. I like how for some of the accessories it states basically that this is for the 1966 model, but it will work for your 67 as well (tool kit). I love my 1967 and the more I read about it the more I realize that these cars were almost built for customizing. I talked to one guy that owned a 66 new and he compared the bugs to the new scion cars today. Easy to customize and a lot people were doing just that. He remembers seeing in 66 lowered bugs, swapped out fenders of different years, cut tops ect... That being said I would like to keep mine mostly original, but also don't feel ashamed with some customization. I am a returning VW addict. I was away for 7 years due to health and job related issues. My mindset is this: Try to stay German and if you see something you would like on your car, GET IT! If you want an original down to the last bolt, DO IT! These cars were made for enjoyment, no matter how you decide to enjoy them.

Ahh... there is nothing like the smell of fresh fish while trying to sleep in the back of your Type III. That picture always makes me laugh!

That's a really neat brochure. I've seen the cover photo but not the rest. Very neat. I would love the tool kit and to convert my '67 to a sleeper!

Thanks Sam! I put a lot of effort into this project. I do it because I love these old cars. Also, the '67 Beetle deserves a platform for it's unique story to be told.

Bianca, Thanks for writing. Well, that's a loaded question. It all depends on the shape, if the motor is org to the car, etc. Could you email me some photos? eric@1967beetle.com.

Hello, Blanca...Thanks for your question. First, I want you to read from this link. Although the article is about BUYING a Beetle, you can apply the principles towards advertising your own Beetle. Look at a really nice, restored Beetle to gain an appreciation for one that is complete and ready to drive. Then, critique your own car with that knowledge. Make a comparison on paper, or on your computer. Grade your car based upon the qualities of a stock, restored car. Now, you have an idea where your car might fit into the price range. Also, in order to get an idea of "asking" prices, go to www.thesamba.com Click on the appropriate Category in Classifieds. Do some checking on what people are asking for their '67 Beetles. Note condition issues, etc. What you are doing is educating yourself as to how a nice '67 Beetle should look. We'll have a purchase story coming out on 1967beetle.com soon. The Beetle which the lady purchased was in the $7-8K range, is mostly original interior and exterior, even to the tires. There's no book which can tell us intrinsic values of these cars. It's a buyer's market. Sometimes a car will turn a head and bring a higher price. An identical car may not appeal to anyone and may not sell for as much. Clean your car thoroughly...and I mean even the engine compartment. And the interior. Vacuum, wash, wax. Clean the windows. Make the car really shine. This lets prospective buyers know that you care about this car. Cleaning alone can raise the worth of a car. Gather all records on the car--both history of purchase and maintenance. The more that you have, the better. Make sure that all of the VW tools that came with the car are there. And the jack. etc., etc. Then, advertise with confidence! jay
