Overall, it is in excellent condition with very minor chips in the paint. Some of the original trim pieces aren't perfect, either."

I have personally owned this beautiful 67 VW Beetle for 3 years. It has been completely restored and is only driven in nice weather.  The car is what I would call a resto-mod or resto-custom.  It has a stock appearing engine, but has been built up considerably on the inside to support future mods, if desired. The paint is a beautiful Porsche Guards Red in PPG Base/Clear.  The body is very solid.  The only metal repair that was needed was a new passenger side floor pan due to some minor rust in the battery tray.  Instead of patching the floor, the restorer replaced the entire floor pan at the seams for a factory appearance.  The restoration is approximately 8 years old with less than 2700 fair weather miles.

Many collectors consider the 67 beetle to be one of the most collectible VW's ever made.  1967 was a special year for VW Beetle.  It was the first year for a 12 volt system as prior years were all 6 volt. However, it still retained the styling of the earlier beetles such as the painted dash with the chrome trim.  67 was the last year for this as in 68 they went to a padded dash.  VW retained the 5 lug wheels in 67 as well as the more stylish chrome bumpers and horn grills below the headlights.

Volkswagen adding R-Line trim to Touareg, Tiguan for 2014

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 15:45:00 EST

Volkswagen introduced its aggressive R-Line appearance package on the CC and Beetle last year, but later this year, this treatment will also be applied to VW's crossovers, the Tiguan and Touareg. Both sporty-looking utility vehicles will be unveiled next week at the Detroit Auto Show.
The 2014 Tiguan R-Line comes standard with bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights, and the package adds 19-inch wheels, grey fender extensions, body-color side skirts and a liftgate spoiler. Inside, the R-Line adds a flat-bottom sport steering wheel with paddle shifters, a black headliner and numerous metallic trim accents such as the stainless scuff plates, the aluminum pedals and metallic finish on the instrument and door panels. The Tiguan R-Line will be offered in front- and all-wheel drive configurations.
As for the 2014 Touareg R-Line (shown above), this model gets an ever more distinctive look with an aggressive front fascia, 20-inch wheels and dual oval-shaped exhaust outlets in addition to the painted side skirts and LED taillights. Similar metallic interior trim pieces found inside the Tiguan R-Line will also make their way into the Touareg as well as gloss black accents on the instrument panel and center stack.

Former Porsche boss Wiedeking won't face criminal charges over VW bid

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 11:01:00 EST

Hedge fund managers have been suing Porsche for years now, alleging that the car company lied about its intentions during its failed attempt to take over Volkswagen, a gambit that caused them billion in losses. Over the same period, authorities in Stuttgart built a criminal case against former CEO Wendelin Wiedeking (above, left) and Chief Financial Officer Holger Härter (right), filing charges in December 2012. When those fund plaintiffs lost their most recent court case, one of the dimming lights in the dark and receding tunnel was that the criminal investigation might unearth more evidence about Porsche's actions that could help the plaintiffs in pending litigation.
Bloomberg reports that another light has gone out, though, with a Stuttgart court dismissing the market manipulation case before going to trial because, as a court spokesperson said, "there wasn't enough evidence backing up the charges." When prosecutors get the files back from the court, they have a week to decide to refile, but unless they've been sandbagging evidence that could bolster the case, the only lights at the end of the tunnel will be those welcoming Wiedeking and Härter back to the world of legally unencumbered men.

VW announces recall of 26,000 2014 models with 1.8T engines

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 09:15:00 EST

Volkswagen has followed up on a stop-sale order from earlier this month, announcing a voluntarily recall of 26,400 vehicles that are powered by the brand's 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The new mill replaced the despised 2.5-liter five-cylinder in the Jetta, Passat, Beetle and Beetle Convertible last year. Weirdly, though, of the 26,452 units covered in the recall, only 1,655 are customer vehicles.
According to VW, the affected models were built between February 1 and April 6 of this year, and feature bad O-ring seals in the transmission oil cooler. Apparently, the faulty O-rings could cause a fluid leak, as they won't seal between the oil cooler and transmission. VW is blaming a material change from a supplier for the problem.
There have been no fires, injuries, accidents or fatalities relating to this issue, which VW will be fixing free of charge. Customers will need to report to dealers to have the O-rings replaced.
