FOR SALE: L639 Zenith Blue '67 Beetle

Spotted on eBay, this L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle is in very respectable condition and has 49,770 original miles. I love seeing all the correct German metal in place, the way diejenigen Deutschen (those Germans) intended it to be. The AM/FM radio is also very interesting, as I’ve not seen many of them. You can view more detailed photos here.

’67 Beetle Winter Storage

Jody Sauvageau Winter Storage

Contributed by Jody Sauvageau, a reader of 1967beetle.com, this article talks about proper winter storage for your ’67 Beetle. (The ’67 above belongs to Mark Massey of OldVWs Restoration).

  • Start off with a thorough cleaning both inside and out.
  • Change the oil and check/top off all of the fluids.
  • Fill the gas tank and use Sta-bil to keep the fuel fresh. The sequence should be to add the stabilizer to your tank, fill with gas and the drive home from the station will be enough to get the stabilizer through the entire fuel system.
