Literature for the ’67 VW Beetle

I get a lot of emails from people asking for information on correct literature. Everett Barnes seems to have this covered very well on TheSamba. From owners manuals to color chats for the ’67 VW Beetle. Scroll down to the bottom of the page!

One thing to remember:
“Every image on this page is either scanned directly from the private collection of Everett Barnes or has been submitted exclusively to TheSamba and credited.

German Square Weave Installation

This pretty much speaks for itself. Quality German square weave carpet, just as they did it back in ’67. 

Here is a visual walkthrough of some of the process:

Interior Prep Work

Since the seats were out, I decided to take care of rust issues and begin prep for new German square weave carpet and proper mats. In case you’re wondering, full carpet isn’t correct for the ’67 VW. Rubber mats are.

Fender Beading Installation

As I mentioned earlier about the running boards; if you have a Savannah beige ’67 beetle, black is not the correct color for fender beading. Wolfsburg West did reproduce beading in the correct color, but I believe no longer has a source for production. Your best bet is NOS (Good luck with that) or trying to locate on The Samba.

Running Boards

In the event you have a Savannah beige ’67 like me, don’t believe the hype. Black running boards are NOT correct. Sand beige however is. It’s highly unlikely you’ll find NOS, so Wolfsburg West is the nest best thing.
