What does NOS mean?
“New Old Stock.” It refers to an item being brand new and newly discovered old stock rather than a reproduction. It’s old stock because it has been sitting in someone’s warehouse for many years, but it is nonetheless brand new.
Why did you start 1967beetle.com?
As some may know, I own my grandfather’s L620 Savannah Beige ’67 Volkswagen Beetle. I’ve worked as a visual designer / art director for the last 11 years. Over the last 8 +, I’ve been working on the ’67. During that time, I fell in love with creating real tangible objects and working with my hands. I’m obsessed with small details and the idea of bringing something old back to its former glory. This site is a reflection of my dedication to this great hobby.
