67 Notch - what is the original style of bumper?


Hi all,

About to start a resto of the notchback but I'm not sure what the original style of bumpers were for the car. At the moment I've got one twisted chrome one and one stainless steel one on the car - can anyone tell me what the original style was and were they the same as the beetle's bumpers at the time?

I've looked at the usual sellers on line but i'm not sure what to look for. Thanks for your help.

From memory they were just a chrome bumper, the bumper bar people at Coffs Harbour reconditioned bumpers for us in the trade for a lot of years they did a couple of S Bug ones for me a few years ago (possibly 10 whoops no more like 15 or so) they may be still in business but I am not sure.

Bumpers on Type 3 vehicles were Type 3 only. The ones for your 1967 were blade only, that is no overriders. The blade is the same from 1962 - 1969. You'll have to search to find a good one thrse days.
