’67 Beetle Safety — Shift Lock

Keeping Your ’67 Beetle Safe — Shift lock

Theft. It’s the theme of many emails received here at 1967beetle.com in regards to the ’67 Beetle. The secret is out; thieves are well aware how special these gems are. If you’re like me, your ’67 is a very special car. Mine was originally purchased by my Grandfather and is the vessel of many childhood memories. I’d never be able to replace in the event there was a loss from theft.

Lucky for us, a very high quality shift lock was produced. It’s the “perfect anti-theft device, virtually impossible to bypass and an original accessory too!” If you’re adding on a shift lock, there is a good chance you’ll also need a replacement boot. Take a look below at the detailed installation instructions below. They explain in detail just how simple it is. It’s also available for download at the bottom of this article.

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 had no idea such an item was out there. Thanks for this, I'll order one later today. I'm new to the VW thing.

Sure thing. It's a great item that makes me feel a lot better when I have to leave my '67 somewhere.

This was *the first* thing I did to my Beetle when we got it. Getting it adjusted is a bit tricky.. mine's not perfect now, I have to push the gear lever slightly forward to be able to unlock it.. However, I'm afraid to touch it because I don't want to make it go further out of whack. :) I think I might go poke around this over the weekend though, since I now have electronic copies of the instructions. :)
