'67 Beetle Build Update — Don Barker

Don Barker is another huge resource here at 1967beetle.com. He’s submitted some fantastic articles over the last few months. We caught up yesterday, and it looks like his l639 zenith blue ’67 is coming along nicely! More photos below.

Hey 1967beetle.com! I’ve been working on my ’67 a little. Got the engine in, and am now just finishing up some wiring. The last 10% of any project takes 90% of the time.

  1. I’ve been following Don’s build thread on TheSamba but I’ll echo my comments here.. While I’m definitely more of a fan of the “keep it OG” crowd, I do love Don’s build. It looks great and classy – aggressive stance, clean lines, etc. I think Dr. Porsche would be proud, and that’s more than I can say of many of the other VW builds I’ve seen out there. :)

    • I agree with your comments 100%. 1967beetle.com is mostly about stock cars. However, Don’t got something very special
      going on here. I’d be proud to own this ’67.

  2. Thanks for the vote of confidence. It means a lot to me coming from Purists at http://1967beetle.com; It really does.

    I’ve still got some wiring to do and, thanks to Jeremy Goodspeed’s wiring article, I just need to add one relay. Other than that, wiring is stock. I’m still looking for the “correct” horn.

    I’m writing another carpet article for http://1967beetle.com, should be soon. (Don’t forget to mask the seat runners from glue!)
    Thanks, again
    Don

  3. I’ve said this before, but this has become the site I look at daily for my ’67 Beetle info. Much less clutter than TheSamba.
