CAR IS COMPLETED! SOLD May 2013! I will Miss Cappy.
Found this car on craigslist, price looked right, pics looked pretty good, and it was only about an hour from me in Westport CT.
I love doing the hunt online and finding a real gem in the rough. Many bugs you see today (about 90% of them) are usually hacked up, numbers don’t match, heavily tampered with, parts are missing etc. So when you do find one, it is something you can’t pass up if the price is right.
I hate to say it, but I was actually just looking when I drove out to take a peek at this car. Well, she won me over. It was so complete! Rust Free and dry too! 1967s are a tough year when it comes to parts, but this one has them all, all original and intact. So many of the parts are going right back on the car when assembly begins. I thought about just selling the car the way it is, so I put it on the market about a month or so and we really had no bites.
In today’s day, many people do not want a car that needs work done. If they do, they want to pay DIRT for it. I know the true potential behind this car, so I am diving right in.
I just bought a 1970 bug in really bad condition an I wasnt sure in which colour i should paint it, but this ivory colour looks really pretty. Same thing with the interior,but this bug really looks great and influenced me, so i will propably make it the same, even if it´s a 1970´s.
@classicvwbugs Thanks... I want to do an in and out repaint on my bug and the best I could come up with was the L380... Seems too green. It looks like a 55-56 Chevy color LOL. I will find out when I start sanding I'm sure. Keep up the great work.
