Gary, Not that I know.. I think this one is brand new to the market. Jay Salser can speak more to this, as he knows the owner. Jay?

Hello, Gary...This is a very nicely done Beetle. Black Gold VW Shop in Arlington, TX, over-saw the restoration. I was able to view the restoration in progress one time before the car was completed. Give Jack Wenk, owner of the shop, a call at 817-633-1135 if you are sincerely interested in the auction. Don't look for this car to sell for peanuts. There was attention paid to details during the restoration. To my knowledge, there was an attempt to "do the car right". The car has remained garaged during the time since the restoration (between 3-4 years, as I recall). The photos of the car are taken in front of the Black Gold shop. jay

Looks like a great 67 bug. Love to see the 67s that are done right. It just needs one of Eric's decals on the air filter. It should sell for a pretty Penney.

Truly a beautiful car. Hope the new owner isn't so excited he/she forgets to fill up at the nearest gas station........................looks a little low.

That Samba listing is nice, but the front fenders are not org and the engine is missing some key items. Still, it's a decent price.

My very first car I learned to drive was a 1967 VW. I wanted it to look like a 71 with newer bumpers, turn signals, and taillights. I paid $800 for it in 1971 while going to a trade school in Waco. Was blue with White bucket seats. My dad taught me to drive it and learned to shift. I was 22 years old. Sold it for $300 in 1974 when engine died. Have pics of it back then and can send.
