Here’s an interesting barn find story that was sent over to 1967beetle.com by a reader in the UK. I’m happy to announce that this ’67 Beetle will get a second chance on the road in the near future.
Submitted by Jesse Kendall – A couple of weeks ago an employee, who knew I was into old Beetles, told me that a farmer friend of his had his son’s old Beetle sitting out in a shed that he was getting ready to scrap. So, I went out to the shed and sure enough there was this sad little Beetle sitting there on blocks. It was covered in a 1/4” worth of dust and dirt, the mice and raccoons did a number on the inside. It had the typical rust but for the most part looked straight, so I took a picture of the vin plate to figure out what year it was.
What do you guys think?
It looks like a lot of work, but it can be brought back to its former glory.
