The BugShop: My Swap Space

This page last modified-7/18/02

I thought about calling this page "Treasures from the Loft" or something like that, but the reality of is, it is not all treasure, some of it just plain old common VW parts that has collected at my house. Aircooled stuff first, then watercooled, then any stuff that I am looking for.

Prices do not include shipping. To estimate shipping try UPS or US Postal Service. Both sites have freight estimators, my ZIP is 01752.

And please be patient, this page may take a while to load.

Looks to be a '64 -'66 (I think) left fender. Very nice used condition, no rust or major dents, very straight. WILL NOT SHIP, must be picked up in Eastern MA. $30
SWF Single speed 6 volt wiper motor, L 113 955 111, mint condition. Correct for '52-'61. One of the earliest 6 volt, "parking" wiper units. If you in to "correct", this is the one. $50
Lower front seat valance, metal, passenger side used in '67, not sure what other years.  Picture shows front and back side of valence, this is not a pair.   $15
'55 - 59 doors One is a shell only. Other complete w/panel, glass, reg., etc., but outer surface was stripped of paint and is now surface rusty. Hinges all perfect, not seized, not floppy. MUST be picked up, NOT willing to ship. $200 pr, will not separate.

Vent window glass, '64 and earlier Beetles. Left, Sekurit "large letter", minor scratches. $20 
Bilstein jack latch. This is the latch that secures the jack inside the spare tire well on the right side of the car. It was carefully drilled out of a trashed front clip (no holes). Could be MIG'ed back on, or drilled and bolted. $2 
Hood emblem, aluminum, 3 round post mount $1. 
Door winder handles, original VW, '55-'66. Chrome good, some pits but shiny. $5 for both. 
"T" handle for "W" decklid, '52-'64. Have two all in good-fair condition. $7 each. 
Vertical separator bar for passenger side door (the piece between the moving and vent windows). No seals, chrome is only fair. Worn off, not pitted. These bars can be modified for use on either side (see page 16 of my '57 resto series) by drilling off and re-welding the bracket on the "inside the door" end. I went to the ends of the earth to find one of these things, this is the one I replaced. $25 
Visor clips, white, has part number 111-561 on bag. New. Fits '67 and other years same as that one. $2 pr. 
Headlight Bucket with adjusting frame, '67 and up, $5 plus shipping. 
Window sashes for single point lift regulators. This is the metal "sleeve" that holds the bottom of the glass and usually rusts out. They have a single tab with 2 bolt holes. I think was found on '70 and up regulators. WILL NOT work for one piece windows, have rubber seals with them, perfect condition, may even be new, I can't remember when I got them. $5 for the pair plus shipping. 
"Drop Channel" for '64 and earlier convertible rear quarter window. This is the "guide track" for the back edge of the quarter window inside the rear quarters. Cleaned, painted with Eastwood's "Corroless" and gray enamel. $20 plus shipping.
