Before you take another drink of your morning coffee, read slowly. What we have up for grabs today is a complete, restored Sapphire VI ’67 Beetle radio; which is quite rare. Why might you ask? It’s both AM & FM. Most of you likely have the Sapphire V. (AM only, myself included)
I’ve only ever seen two in person, and they were installed in someone else’s ’67 Beetle. Below is the information we have from the seller, as well as photos below. Wow, it even has the correct dealership rubber safety knobs. Check out those internal shots; truly a work of art. Info from the owner.
“I have a VW Sapphire VI AM/FM Bendix Radio from my ’67 VW Beetle for sale. I purchased the car 2 years ago, and was told the radio didn’t work. I shipped the unit to VW radio expert in Virginia where he recently repaired and serviced the radio and returned it to me. In the meantime, I decided to install a new digital stereo radio in my ’67 since the car isn’t stock anyway (or I would be keeping it). I am therefore offering the very rare 12 volt radio.”
