Dusty But Not Rusty: 1967 Volkswagen Beetle Type 1

One of my only automotive acquisition regrets is the time I turned down an offer for a free Volkswagen Beetle. It was actually two Beetles, but the parts were in boxes and the body was separated from the pan and my ability to assembled one working Beetle from the assorted boxes/bags/piles was questionable given the other projects I was also nursing along…so the Beetle went to someone else to store the pieces of another automotive jigsaw puzzle. However, today’s next feature seems like a much shorter putt to get your Vee-Dub itch scratched. Find this 1967 Volkswagen Beetle offered for $3,000 in Vernonia, OR via craigslist. Tip from JB1025.
