The Story of VIN 903847

Although not specific to the ’67 Beetle, this beautiful story transcends all years of the Vintage Volkswagen. There’s an emotional connection we all have with these great cars. Even with 1967beetle.com, each featured article is connecting the past with the present.

“The Story of VIN 903847 — the incredible history of a 1955 Volkswagen Beetle

The word Volkswagen translates to mean ‘people’s car’ in German, and really, the iconic vintage cars have long-held people’s affections since they were first introduced.

Now Academy Award nominated director Hubert Davis looks to investigate the incredible history of a 1955 Volkswagen Beetle, VIN 903847, through each of its drivers. Dating back to the original owner, three remarkable solo trips around the world are just the start of the story. As much as it is a story about the people connected by one machine, it’s also an observation of our enduring fascination with the automobile.”

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!
