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

  1. Very nice ’67. Is the front bumper org to the car?

    1. I don’t believe so. The plastic wedges are an indication of a cheaper aftermarket bumper. This would be an easy fix as Wolfsburg West offers a perfect replacement.

      1. I don’t know what you’re referring by “plastic wedges.” Can you tell me what they are and how you can tell if they’re plastic?

        1. Take a look at the corner of the front bumper bar corner. You’ll see a small plastic wedge. This is there to hide the fact that aftermarket bumper tool tolerances are way off. The only correct bumpers are NOS German and Wolfsburg West.

  2. Just down the road from me. I love the color, I think it will sell quickly.

  3. An interesting note: the vacuum line from distributor to carburetor is upside-down–meaning that the end on the distributor should be on the carburetor with the loop at the top to prevent gas feedback to the vacuum canister. jay

    1. Seems to be a trend..

  4. I see this Ruby Red 67 sold. Does anyone know what it sold for? Hard to find them this original. Thanks

    1. Mark,
      I think it went for about $9,000. Agreed, which is why mine will always remain stock.

  5. I’m the new owner of this car. I’ve been working to get it up to 100% of what it should be. It does need a paint job at some point and the passenger front fender along with the bumper are not correct for the car. Several interior details were forgotten when the interior work was done, like the coat hook and assist straps, the seat belts, and some other things. It does run and drive well (now) that I’ve gone through the engine and tuned it up correctly and cleaned out the heat risers. More to come…


    1. Ken,
      Great to hear you’ve been taking good care of that ’67. We would love to do a full feature on it, when you’re ready.

  6. O.k, now your telling me my bumpers are knock offs….lol
    Well I kinda figured, but had hopped they were real gems. Good to know for sure.
    And Jay totally got me. I had wondered why this vacuum line was so artistic in its form…. I never came up with the common scents answer, like stopping fuel bleed back. May explain why my rubber vac line equipped vacuum dizy was leaking when I bought the car.
    More great tips. Thanks guys.

    1. Richard…you will need to forgive us–these things just pop out of our mouths! LOL jay
