67 is a odd year. It is the first year of 12 volt, last year of the old style of bumpers (the rear bumper is unique to 67), first year od the flat headlights (in the US), the engine hood is 67 only, the chrome strip downt he hood is one year only, the rims are different... It just keeps going like that.

'66 was the last year for the early style headlights and flat decklid. As Greg says, '67 is an odd year. It was the beginning of the later styling, but still had some elements of the early styling. Lots of one year only parts on '67 Bugs.

Which ever car is in the best shape.... you can always switch over what you like or need.

It's a bug... EVERYTHING comes off*.

*Some dis-assembly required

You might just have to cut :p
