It’s a rare occasion I remember to pause from managing, writing articles, etc., for 1967beetle.com to post a few shots of my own ’67. Here are a few from a foggy morning drive around the Alameda island.
Hello, I'm Eric. I founded and curate 1967beetle.com. I also co-founded Lane Russell with my wife Amanda. I drive a '67 Beetle daily, and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.
Like the badges on the rear bumper, where did you find those?
They give the car that extra character. Like the luggage rack,they add to the originality and curb appeal.
The D came from Wolfsburg West.
The VVCA badge came from them when my car was featured.
Fantastic story. I love it!
In the first picture, with your grandfather, it looks like the side mirror was oval. Am I mistaken? Did all '67's come with oval side mirrors or round, or was that something that changed mid year like the sun visor clips?
Is Wolfsberg West the best place to get a right side mirror?
Yes, the OG mirror was pear shaped. You can get these from Wolfsburg West. Mirrors were a dealership option. Not everyone got them and they came in both pear and 101 round.
I am looking at a 1967 sunroof bug with a bad front clip, they said it was a Wolfsburg edition car. Was there such an animal and how would you know ?
I do believe there is a Wolfsburg edition of the '67 vert. Your best bet would be to check TheSamba.
