I bought my ’67 Bug in July 2019. I found it on Facebook in Douglasville, GA.
I immediately named it Charlie and I got to work on it.
I’m not new to VWs. I’m ’65, and bought my first when I was 14. I had several through the years and ’67s have been my favorite. So when I found this one at a good price I jumped on it.
I started by appraising the condition. I found it solid with very little rust and appears to have never taken any serious hits. It had the original owners manual. It was bought from Schoenfield’s VW in Marietta, GA. The manual had the original engine number in it and it match the engine in the car.
I pulled that out to rebuild and reinstall later. I put in a 1600 DP I had built earlier to drive Charlie in the meanwhile.
Thanks for reading!
