Looking for some 1957 parts
Hey there VW fans,

Looking for a couple of things for my dash on my Oval window. If anyone has any of these parts or knows someone with these parts, please be free to post.

Thank you,

Parts Needed....

Glove box panel.
Ignition switch with key.
Radio.

Thanks once again

Nick (from the club) and I visited with a guy who just bought a storage locker of vw stuff in sherwood..he is planning to have a garage sale in the next two weeks.  We told him to post it up on this site but he may just advertise on craigslist.  I know he has an ignition with key in his stuff...I nearly took it home with me...but I dont know the year for it...only that it is beetle.

Sorry I cant help you more.  If you watch craigslist for something like "aircooled vw parts sale" it should come up in the next week or so...you can probably get the ignition for a song.

here's the post

He said if you bring a friend or two he might even throw in parts free.  lots of stuff..mostly late, generally used, regular parts, but might have something you're looking for.


Like I said, I know he had an ignition with key when I was there the other day.

Craigslist List post was deleted as of 3/22.
Would love to dig around for some parts.

Okay...
Finally have all my pieces for my 57 dash. The last piece came in the mail yesterday.
Now I can start working on everything. Thanks to everyone who helped me out, and gave me leads.

:cheers2: to you all.
