I've a few mint ones in my stash. And I don't even have a '67. Thanks to Bill May, I've been hoarding nice '67-only parts for about 3 years now.

Sapphire VIII AM/ 8 Track's in working condition are harder to find than the Sapphire VI's. Not to mention the optional VDO tach.

Some had them, some didnt. Either is correct (ie "OG"). However, some people want the SBs because they are more rare and exclusive to '67.

Both the inner & outer headlight rings should have the SB12 designation embossed on them. The inner rings are easier to find since they were used on multiple years following 1967. The outer ring was used during 1967 production only.
The outer ring shown above was on my former '67 convertible. Here's a pic of the inner ring on the same car while I was assembling it a few years ago.

Hello everyone. I'm new here. How about the tunnel mat? and 'vert things......rear-view (inside) mirror, early top w/ chrome strip above rear window, mid year change without strip, deck lid (try to find one of these!), and the most esoteric 67 only thing ever...the convertible's deck lid "rain tray".

Since I was building a daily driver resto custom, I choose to install H4s rather the the regular sealed bulbs.

The tack strip below the rear window was changed mid year, not the Chrome deco strip. Early cars were stapled below the rear window, later production cars used a curled lip.

Correct....but, I was speaking of the tack strip (w/ recess) and chrome deco strip ABOVE the rear window, which was eliminated at the mid year change you mention. The chrome deco strip around base of top / body remained thru '69, I think. Isnt the clear plastic fuse block cover another '67 only item? VW1500 emblem on early '67 deck lids.......

The emblem is '67-only. But it was used throughout the entire year, not just on early production cars

I don't think so. 1967 thru mid 1971 cars all use fusebox cover VW part # 111937555A
