Rarest of the rare, this is a front rubber deco strip for a '67 S. Not reproduced anywhere, this is one of the, if not THE hardest part to find for a '67 S restoration. I also have the stainless deco backing, but I "think" that this is the same as the readily available 69-73 stainless.
Condition is good, but not perfect. Looking closely at the photos, you will notice some slight checking of the surface of the rubber - but only in certain areas. With a few applications of rubber treatment, this will look great from anywhere but a foot away.
Price : SOLD!
Not too often that you see one of these German military Kubelwagens. Last week I visited Doc Von Kubel Werks restorations in Miamisburg Ohio and got to see four Kubel's in various states of restoration plus a Schwimmwagen, a German half-track and a Mercedes staff-car. When I return, I hope to get a ride.
In the meantime check out this '42 Kubel that served in the German army in Norway. It spent most of its life in Norway but eventually ended up in the U.S. where it has been for the last twenty years or so.

Up for sale is this spare parts catalog dated Jan 1960. It is in good shape...not perfect, but certainly better than average. It appears to be complete and the pages are tight and show little use with no greasy fingerprints so common with these catalogs. Very detailed down to the part # for the hammer used with Rudge wheels!
Truly one of a kind - a Split Window VW Rat-Rod Beetle mounted on a custom chassis. The "KDF Mangler" uses a race prepped Corvair motor for motivation. Look for it in an upcoming issue of Ultra VW Magazine.
