If you’re a fan of the old Herbie films, you’ll quickly recognise the VW Beetle. At White’s Bodyworks, we were happy to see this 1967 model come onto our forecourt for restoration and repair. It’s a quintessentially European vehicle and that is still seen on our roads today.
Older models such as this require a good deal of expertise, not least because of the rear engine that is a unique feature of the brand. The good news is that our team have a great deal of experience delivering renovations and repairs for a wide range of vintage vehicles.
More About the VW Beetle
Volkswagen were pioneers of the ‘people’s car’, a vehicle that was readily affordable. The first models were produced in the 1930s. It’s distinctive shape and design became a popular choice in the late 60s and 70s with a peak in 1971 when 1.3 million Type 1 cars came off the production line.
You won’t be surprised that there is quite a popular classic VW Beetle owners club in the UK and they regularly meet up at various classic car events around the country.
