Robert Hutchinson's '67 Beetle

This article was submitted by reader and ’67 enthusiast Gareth Calveley. Thank you very much for your contributions to 1967beetle.com.

Gareth here from North Wales. I just wanted to showcase the progress on my L518 Java Green restoration. I enjoy 1967beetle.com and the community here.

The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

i was impressed that anyone would attempt such a restoration--Gareth says that in the UK a person normally can expect to replace the first 3 inches of a Beetle when restoring! Robin Snook and Peter Ferguson were very fortunate to have found '67s that needed far less fabrication. Kudos to Gareth for this fabulous job. I can't wait to see the completed car! jay
