Ha - that was you! It's so interesting trying to connect Facebook and The Samba usernames. Hey - I hear Jos loves Super Beetles! Wink

BTW, in case anyone is interested in info from the source - Sean Tunstill at Wolfsburg West sent me the following picture of their 67 TMI seats. I'm excited! I know WCCR is quality, but this seems closer to original. He said, "The seat knob holes are NOT precut into the covers"

#187 on the registry. Just completed a 10+ year everything off restoration/resurrection. I had an original 67 vert passed down from my father that was stolen in 1989. Went out and bought a new one 11 years ago and turns out someone had completely transformed it into a 68+: engine, doors, seats, fenders, wheels/brakes/axels, roof, the list was endless. Damage everywhere and shoddy repairs throughout, it was held together by rust. Fully restored to a stock 67 with many original, genuine VW parts including the fender, bumpers/bumper guards, front seat belts, roof latches, roof frame, seats, lights, gas tank. All hoses, rubber and inner guts were replaced. Engine rebuilt on a 67 engine block. Everything is fully operational like the day it was driven off the car lot.

Congrats! That is an accomplishment. Enjoy.

Thank You for the positive comments.

Actually: #1) this is an air pre-heat hose going through the firewall and is connected to a gasoline heater booster; located near the tranny. #2) On the left as well, carefully, you can see a fuel line which is blocked with a T fitting at the end. That fuel line was connected between the fuel pump and the carb with that T fitting. It was supplying gasoline to the heater booster (See attached photo)

This is the information I got from the second owner:
"In 1967 all deluxe beetles sent to Canada had a gas heater located in the back above the transmission. The heater ducts from the heater boxes to the back seat and heater channels went through the gas heater. When you pulled the heater lever all the way up it closed an electrical contact that started the gas heater. There is a small green light in the dash above the speedometer that would light up to indicate that the booster heater was on. You actually got some heat to the windshield for defrosting although it didn't work all the best. This is completely different from the gas heaters that were an option located in the front trunk."

"The VW publicity image is from a 1967 Canadian sales brochure. At the center bottom you will see it refers to the booster heater as being standard equipment." (See photo)

Some pictures for more info

Thanks for the added pictures, very nice for sure. I haven’t heard of the type of gas heated you have, any gas heater has to be a plus.

Woody, It would be an August build date, probably somewhere around August 18th give or take a couple days. Very cool that it's a super early car. It would've still had the super early '67 details like the '66 rear bumper and SB12 headlight rings, along with all of the other regular "early" 1967 parts.

You can still get the Birth Certificate. I'm not sure of the exact link at the moment but if you type in Birth Certificate in the Samba search it should bring you to the topic that has the direct link. It's much faster these days than it used to be.

We'd love to see pics of the new car!

Hi everyone,

I've owned a number of bugs over the years, 71 super conv, 63 ragtop sunroof baja with popout windows, stock 63 and a couple of dune buggies. I wasn't looking for a car, I have too many already, but I do like to browse CL from time to time and I came across what looks like a very solid 67 beetle at just too good a price so back in the game again.

It comes with a boatload of new parts and the interior is all new. Not newly recovered, new. But.... no rear bumper so I'm in need of one. Any ideas where to look?

Interesting. Those are my seats I built for my '67. Funny that Sean knew that. Yes, they are correct and worked out well. I had to add a lot of foam to shape them out. They were too baggy" by default. Laughing

Hello I have 67 convertible that previous owner mixed early and late parts. To make correct 67 I would need to replace front both front quarters (p.o. put late quarters on) door glass(late model quarter glass), interior window handles , interior dash knobs (early), and find a 67 convertible pan as it sits on a
67 sedan pan right now. I put up for sell several times and decided against. question is should I try and restore back to original? Or, should I leave as is, fix and drive. The body also doesn't have a vin plate. thoughts? Thank you for your time!

also I am picking up a 67 sedan this weekend!

Morning, friends.

I just wanted to share a very original barn find L518 Java Green ’67 Beetle we helped market and sell recently. It had been sitting for 25 + years; a true gem. They are still out there.

Hi all,
I just sent my info to be added to the registry. In the meantime, am hoping to get an image of original visor clip, bonus if convertible (but I think they're the same). I am not sure if it's (yet another) single year part but it's been a lingering omission for some time and I am replacing visors anyhow. Does the collective mind believe these to be original style? https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2460655
Thanks!
