1967 VW Beetle Sunroof Sedan Project For Sale

OK...we get requests for project cars now and then and this one is a great one.
Unfortunately the owner of the car passed on (way too young) and his wife
has been left with the job of doing something with it.
They are good friends and long time customers of ours so I just had to help.
Its a sad situation, but an opportunity for something very good to come out of it.
Hopefully whoever takes this one on will complete it and make it something special...
that is what they planned to do with it...but life had other plans.

The biggest cool factor to this project is that they have bought a TON of new parts for it.
(like these new hubcaps)
I will go through it all here in the photos so you can see what a deal you are getting.

Here is the clutch and pressure plate off the engine.

Here is a new flower vase with mount.

the fuel gauge is here, dash handle too and some new Wolfsburg Crest decals for the seat belts

Front fender well...looks straight and solid.

Good behind the front wheels too

The body is really quite straight and the doors close well.

The car was a runner and driver when these folks bought it...it all worked,
so the trans here should be good.

The car must have had a big performance engine in it as one point as there are access panels put in
the engine compartment on each side to allow for carb adjustment, etc.
With the firewall material in here you would not see this .

All four fenders are in nice shape...the engine lid looks good as well.

The body on the car is good...I dont think it would be difficult to prep it for paint.
Just a few flaws here and there...but a super solid basis.

but will clean up very easily.

The sunroof panel itseld is in real nice shape.
(that is just dirt on it there by the way...not a crack)

Here is one small spot on the roof that will need some attention...a couple pin holes in the metal

Its not pretty...but a creat canvas to build from.
Fenders look good, front apron as well.
Hood looks scruffy but is really pretty straight and very solid.

Build it as you like it!

Its just begging for someone to take it on!

Drivers side door windows have been removed but the passenger side is still together.
