Some people dream about the possibility of owning a piece of the titanic. I however don’t have to, as these miracles just seem to find their way to my inbox. This time, it comes in the form of a NOS ’67 Beetle front bumper, box included. This just might be the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. Thanks to our customer and friend, Robert Baguley for sharing from his personal collection.
A rare find, a genuine VW front bumper boxed in its original shipping box. Hidden tucked down inside one of the bumperettes is a small brown VW logo’d envelope containing the rubber grommets and mounting bolts.
My friend is a retired VW partsman and his eyes lit up when he saw it, incredibly recalling the part number by heart. What he shared was that it is a factory replacement bumper – all replacement bumpers came with black poles & brackets from the factory, unlike the silver ones that came on completed cars.
