Randy Chow’s L456 Ruby Red ’67 Beetle

Randy Chow's Barn Find ’67 Beetle
The term “Barn Find” is a bit of an understatement in this case. By the looks of this VW, it’s obvious that Randy Chow is a very talented creative. This ’67 Beetle was created by hand to get that perfect aged look. I’d be honored to drive this car daily. In fact, I’d never even wash it. Would you?

Hello, I'm Eric. I started Air-Cooled Artifacts (previously, 1967beetle.com and Lane Russell). I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Absolutely TOO cool!
    Where can I get one?

  2. Are the white spots supposed to be bird crap?

    1. Think worse. :)

  3. Randy…I must say that at first glance, I inwardly gasped! Then, I realized that we had ourselves a model. Very creative, indeed. I once was told about a Beetle and obtained directions to go to see it for a possible purchase. When the owner showed it to me, I was in complete disbelief! He said…”I drove it out here (a field) and parked it!” The car was completely rusted. When I opened a door, the sill fell away. Wasps were thick in the engine bay. Unopened mail was in the glove box from the day when the car was parked in that field. I could not believe that the owner actually wanted me to pay him for rust! LOL Needless to say, I passed on the deal. jay

  4. absolutely epic treatment of the metal. I assume epoxy or some such?

    1. Dipped in acid, it would seem.

  5. Nice patina! You’d pay a lot at a resto shop for a finish like that.
    Impressive “stance.” No sag at the back.
    One Lane Russell hub cap, on the spare, would look cool.

  6. SJI “Yard Art” …
