L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle Rescue

Talking with Matt last night over in Austin, TX; him and the boys at VW life rescued a L633 VW Blue ’67 named, “Ol Spot.” The car had been sitting parked since 1980. These are the stories I love to hear, and the reason the vintage Volkswagen is such a special car.

Nice work, guys!

    Nice find! Looking forward to seeing completion!

  2. I’m a no.1 fan of all “Volkswagen Beetle” well maybe the last in my teenager live so that mind my dad bought me my first car and it was a 1953 Volkswagen Beetle and the owner had painted it with a brush in orange color with a 100cc 6 volt. engine since then it has been my most favorite car and the love for those little cars will always run through my blood I love the history of the owner and you passion for VWLIFE greetings from a Puerto Rican , p.s. in total of my live I have 8 Volkswagen 1953,68,66,69,72,75 and the last two 1972 100% original and 1962 100% restoration they have all passed to other owners but I don’t want to go to “Heaven” until I buy another one again it is my dream and it will be 1966 or 1969 my most favorite years,

  3. I hated to hear that they were going to pull the engine (original H0-xxxxxx ?) and install “just another engine”. Would be neat were this car to have the original engine.

  4. This thing couldn’t have possibly sat INSIDE of a “shop” or a garage or some “barn” for 40 years! It most likely sat outside exposed to the elements (weather, SUN!) Panels don’t get sunburned where all remaining paint weathers off, or rubber seals get petrified when stored inside.. like our subject 67 in the video! However, it IS a nice score, and I’d like to see more of the interior details. BTW, I’ll take that original H0 engine if they don’t want it!! haha

  5. Great story!!! what great potential the car has.. looking forward to see you peeling the onion and watching the progress reviving the “67” CLASSIC!!! Cheers….
