Billsbeetlebarn Recently acquired this 1974 VW SuperBeetle with factory sunroof from San Antonio, Texas! Yes we travelled more than 2600 miles for this one! Clean Texas Title! There is something to be said about how solid Texas cars are...there is NO RUST anywhere in the wheel and arches! Heater channels and rear luggage tray are in great shape as well! Aftermarket seats were being put in and the original center mounts were cut, pan replacement may be needed. Engine turns by hand, new starter was installed but still could not get it to start. Included are the "Ansen" style stotted rims and old tires as pictured. All glass is good as well

Asking $3200 she deserves a good home!

Pick up in Lawrenceburg, IN

BILLSBEETLEBARN IS Looking to rehome this 1966 VW Beetle. CLEAN OH title matches body and chassis. She is a project but is a very good start to an easy finish. Engine runs (have video) but has not been wired up to the ignition as it needs a key or needs to be replaced. Seats need new padding and coverings but frames and springs are in very good condition and are correct 66/67 only folding seats. Heater channels and driver side floor pan are in solid shape but the passenger side battery tray area needs replacing as most do. Gas tank was pulled, cleaned and primed so it will need to be painted and reinstalled.

ASKING $4800/BO

Bring a trailer ... she rolls well!

Billsbeetlebarn is doing well in acquiring, saving and re-homing VWs this year! I picked up a 1960 ceramic green ragtop that went to South Carolina, a 1960 Euro that is going to California, saved a 1966 that is currently up for sale, reclaimed a 1967 from Mother nature to help keep other VWs alive and well. This one was a challenge as I had to convince a guy that bought it out from under me that it was too good to be used in his flower garden. I paid him what he paid and gave him the front half of a 1968 Convertible that I had parted out. I will be heading down to San Antonio soon to pick up a nice looking 1974 sunroof SuperBeetle and when I get back will be picking up a 1971 Convertible and a 914 Porsche (both have titles)!

Buying old aircooled VWs, Porsches and parts..... motors, cars (beetles, Superbeetles, busses, ghias, kit cars, railbuggys, 914, 911, etc). I will entertain whatever you have, whole non running cars, parts and part lots. large or small. Nature reclaiming an old VW, please let me try to put it to good use! I have rehomed parts from more than 400 VWs over the past 15 years and have grown my hobby into a legitimate small business venture.

Donations of any aircooled VW items is always appreciated!

Please message pictures, price and contact information

Billsbeetlebarn is offering up another Beetle with a clean OHIO TITLE!
This 1966 Beetle rolls well and has some of the nicest inner fender wells I have come across for this era Beetle. Heater channels appear to be good and both doors close solidly. Driver side pan has been replaced... install needs to be completed as it appears to only be tacked in place. NEW Passenger side pan rear battery section included because this area needs to be replaced. Bottom of the spare tire area needs welding. Stationary quarter windows included so all glass is there. Original door cards and hardware included, I will include the upper and lower sections of the backseat and have ONE 66/67 lowback (not sure of which side) to include with the car. Engine pictured turns by hand and will need to be completed. Going to check my parts stash to try and come up with a couple of headlight buckets as well.

Pick up is in Lawrenceburg, IN about 30 minutes West of Cincinnati.

A $250 deposit will hold it while you make arrangements to pick it up...balance to be paid in cash when picked up.

BILLSBEETLEBARN is looking to rehome another "Gem"!

Here we have a 1960 Euro that was originally black. She still has the original 4 tab hood, desireable steering wheel/column lock, and 6v Semaphores! Heater channels and floors are pretty decent for her age! She comes with a clean OH title, all of the window glass, running boards and I believe to be the original engine (removed) that turns by hand. All 4 tires hold air and she rolls pretty well.

She would be a Nice start to your next project!

Pick up is Lawrenceburg, IN... about 30 minutes West of Cincinnati.

Asking $4200...
Yes, she has a title
Pans, spare tire well and channels are in decent shape. Engine, complete interior, and all of the glass is included!

Willing to hold while you can make arrangements to pick up with a $250 deposit

1960 Ceramic Green RAGTOP Beetle with matching body and chassis. Clean Indiana title in my name! Original 4 tab hood has an easy fix 2 inch crack on the drivers side edge. Heater channels are in nice shape allowing the doors to open and close nicely. Passenger side rear pan will need to be replaced. This would make for a nice original survivor patina ride or restore her to her proper glory to secure a large profit! Engine turns by hand but I have not been able to get her to turn over after pulling a 6volt battery from one of my other Beetles. Original Ragtop works as she should!

Asking $4500 / open to reasonable offer

International Vintage VW Meeting Morat/Murten

Noticible differences in VW Beetles through the years
https://www.facebook.com/vwvintage.ch/videos/628706680587570/

Comparison between a beetle with the chassis number 003 of 1938 and an 1972 modele

The development between 1938 and 1972 shows visible feature improvements:
- the energy-absorbing steering wheel
- a constantly improved rear suspension.

The beetle is more and more trimmed in the race with the security: his suspension and especially the front axle.

In the Wolfsburg Llaboratories: tests with the "airbag", a gas cushion, that is hidden in the steering wheel or dashboard. The "airbag" is controversial among the automotive experts.

Had to share this with all of my VW family...

MERRY CHRISTMAS

'A VW NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Twas the night before Christmas and out in the garage,
There wasn't a trace of a Ford or even a Dodge.
The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,
So I figured I'd mess with the VW a bit.
I popped the release and I lifted the hood,
When a deep voice behind me said, "Looks pretty good!"
Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,
And there by the workbench stood good old Saint Nick!
We stood there a bit, not sure what to say,
Then he spoke up, "Wanna trade for my sleigh?'
I said "No way, Santa" and started to grin,
But if you've got the time, we could go for a spin."
His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,
Turned into a smile and he said "All right, let's go!"
So as not to disturb all the neighbor's retreat,
We pushed the VW on down to the street.
Then taking our places to coast down the hill,
I started my baby...it was always a thrill.
The sound that erupted took him by surprise,
But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.
With tires a'cryin' and headers aglow,
We headed on out where the Hot Rodders go.
And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears,
With every shift up, as I went through the gears.
Then he yelled "I can't recall when I've felt so alive!'
So I backed off the gas and said "You wanna drive?'
Old Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,
When he walked past the headlights, he shook at the knees.
The VW erupted with that AirCooled sound,
When Santa stomped the gas, the tires shook the ground!
Chirped into second and again into third,
I just sat there holding on, at a loss for words.
Then I heard him exclaim as he blasted from sight,
"Merry Christmas to all, it's been one heck of a night"!
