Window Winders

I’ve received 3 emails in the past week about this topic.
Yes, the ’67 winders are in fact a one year only part. I’ve seen (and tried) a few that are not aesthetically correct. You can get the winder here. The part number is: 113837581E.

“Window winder, 1967 Bug, perfect reproduction with black molded plastic knob, made by Wolfsburg West.”

While you’re at it, you will probably want to replace your window collar too. These come in different colors and sit under the winder. Lastly, don’t forget that important door dowel pin. These things are TINY and can be easily lost. Still have questions? Email anytime!

Peter, From what I know, the '67 Ghia had a one year only seat cable that prevented the seat back from moving forward when the door was closed. The '67 also had an inset ignition switch in the dash.

I have a '67 with a missing regualtor/crank. Couldn't find the collar on WW's website (only found the one for 68+) on my own but google hooked me up with your post and you have the right link. :) Thanks!
