SOLD — Genuine Volkswagen Venetian Blinds

FOR SALE — Genuine Volkswagen Beetle Venetian Blinds
Hello, ‘67 Beetle community.

I have a Genuine Volkswagen Beetle (dealership accessory) rear window venetian blind for sale. It came from Australia and is in perfect shape. I had it in my ’67 Beetle for about 2 weeks but am now going a different direction. It comes in its original box and installs in about 5 min. These are made by the same company that made them long ago for VW. The fit and finish in the window is perfect, as you’d expect from Volkswagen.

Hermann Bonasch’s L456 Ruby Red ’67 Beetle Legacy

Hermann and Marcia at lunch Brittany garage with Carol

This is a special ’67 Beetle story from our good friend, Tom Griffin. But more importantly, it’s about Hermann Bonasch who was the original owner of this small wonder. Hermann recently made his journey home to heaven on July 6, 2015. I’d like everyone to pause for a moment of silence in his honor. The ’67 Beetle community around the world is thinking about you today.

Hermann was the original owner of the ’67 Beetle that sits in my garage. It was in that Beetle that his three kids learned to drive, learned how to experiment, and learned how many kids can fit into a Bug. Hermann Bonasch was a veterinarian when he purchased the car in 1967, and was soon to marry his dear wife, and lifelong champion, Marcia. At his memorial service, it was a treat to hear more about Hermann through the eyes of his friends, colleagues, and family. Many recalled how Hermann spoke clearly and directly; many more recalled how his actions were kind and purposeful. All told of a remarkable man.

Hello, I am considering selling my 1967 VW Beetle. It is a beautiful original car with little rust. Floors and corners are good. Battery tray was replaced. The original hood is included. Has basic 1960s seat belts. Interior is original, uncut, with a few seams separating. It comes with your choice of engine puzzle. I have enough engine parts to make either:

    A matching numbers 1500cc engine with H0… serial number.
    A 1500cc engine with doghouse oil cooler fan housing.
    A 1600cc engine with doghouse oil cooler fan housing.
    A 1641cc engine with doghouse oil cooler fan housing.

I do have used heat exchangers and a wide dual muffler. However, you might want to get nicer ones and an original muffler. Many parts on the 1967 model are one year only. Rare original 1967 rear bumper overriders (towel bars). Rare original 1967 engine hood in good condition. Original door handles. Original radio. Clean Minnesota title (should be done soon). Great candidate for patina driver or simple restoration.

Fresh to the market here at from Duncun Automotive Network; we have a nice L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle for sale. Pay close attention to the quality of this restoration. The paint is the correct Zenith blue, fenders are German, bumpers are just right. I believe I’m even seeing a German VW roof rack. It does not get much better than this. Who’s going to make an offer?
