NOS ’67 Beetle Front Bumper

IMG_3174

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.

VW Logo SpecsA family stationed in Germany went to a Volkswagen Dealership to purchase a brand new Bus. It was just right for the family.

A perk from the Dealer was a smart genuine leather key pouch. The pouch is embossed with a gold VW Logo and the words: Auto-Blank Kornwestheim Ruf 6030

Kornwestheim is a town in the district of Ludwigsburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is situated about 10 kilometres north of Stuttgart, and 5 kilometres south of Ludwigsburg. Eventually, the Bus and the family parted ways but the key pouch was kept as a souvenir.

One of my VW friends was good friends with this former VW owner. Thus, the key pouch passed to my VW friend. When my friend lost interest in VWs a while back, he passed this wonderful pouch to me. Needless to say—it never resides in my pocket. I want to save the embossed lettering.

The key fastens to the ring on a strap. The strap can be pulled to retract the key inside the pouch. Once the key has been pulled into the pouch, the strap is snapped to the pouch to secure the key inside. The pouch can be stowed in a pocket or the loop can be used to wear the pouch on a belt.

Genuine Restored 30 PICT 1 Carbs

Hello, ’67 Beetle community. I just wanted to mention that we do have another batch of restored 30 PICT 1 carbs available. Not just any 30 PICT 1, but the correct VW 105-1.

If you know the ’67 Beetle, you know the German VW 105-1. Two key components of a vintage Volkswagen engine are the distributor and the carburetor. VW engineers carefully paired these for optimum operation. The 30-PICT 1 carburetor was redesigned from 1966 – 1967 for use with a 1500cc engine.

Fits 1966 – 1967 Beetles. It can fit other applications, based on size of engine, etc. Contact us with questions.

Hello 1967beetle.com,
Just saw the wedding pics of your friends Mike & Paula on the site. I’ve been meaning to share my own photos from my wedding in Sept, 2014. The beetle belongs to me (the bride) so it was important to have it closely involved in the wedding. Feel free to share any of these. The car is a ’67 Canadian Custom. Thanks!
