Glen Orris’s Australian ’67 Beetle

This beautiful ’67 Beetle comes from Glen Orriss of Australia, a reader of 1967beetle.com. It’s a 1300 deluxe. I don’t know much about the production run of ’67s in other countries, but this one is worth a mention because of  its unique features. It looks more like a ’66, but is in fact a 1967 Beetle.

German Vintage VW Gravel Guards

Gravel Guards

As we continue sharing original ’67 Beetle accessories, our friend Sam Glen sent over some long lost Genuine parts from his own collection. Thanks so much for sending over, Sam!

Hello, 1967beetle.com.
I just wanted to show how the latest conversations on “collectibles” jogged my memory. I bought these German gravel guards well over 20 year ago, put them up in the shop and forgot about them. After reading the neat stories Jay and the other folks posted, it stirred my memory, and guess what I found them again!

Thanks, everyone. I really enjoy 1967beetle.com.

Sent over by reader of 1967beetle.com, Brandon Barnard. It’s a cold morning here in Austin, TX. Jay and I were talking about this earlier. If you think about it, these old cars were designed for the cold weather. Just a slight bump of the key, and I was headed down the road this morning.

Are you seeing snow and ice in your area? Did you drive you ’67 Beetle to work today?

Connecting ’67 Beetle Owners

Connecting '67 Owners

Sent over by reader of 1967beetle.com, Ryan B . We continue to help connect ’67 enthusiast around the world. This time, it’s to buy German parts. A score for our good bud, Mike Buettell who picked up a ’67 lobster claw seat belt. Seeing things like this make me smile. 1967beetle.com exist for this very reason. We will keep digging in the forgotten places around the world to connect every ’67 owner.

I thought you might dig these. I sold a driver’s side seat belt listed on your site yesterday to a fella named Mike Buettell who lives not far from me. Today we met up to exchange the seat belt, and we both drove our ’67 Beetles. -Ryan B
