Julian Stewart’s L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle

Another fascinating ’67 vintage Volkswagen Beetle story. This one comes from a reader of 1967beetle.com across the pond. Like my own ’67, it’s heart warming to hear stories of original owners and their relationship with their old VWs. After all, they don’t call it the “small wonder” for nothing.

“Purchased on June 23, 1967, the little Beetle came to $2,322.85: a base price of $1,998, plus a $100 sunroof, $85 radio, and $14.95 for rustproofing, a $15 license fee and five per cent sales tax. Stewart estimates it’s worth about $20,000 today.

Montreal’s Expo 67 exhibition was the big draw in Canada’s centennial year, and Stewart drove it there. The following year, he and his wife Margaret took it to Los Angeles for a vacation, travelling mostly along Route 66. The trip covered 7,600 miles (12,231 km) and cost $76 in fuel.”

SOLD – L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle

Jay and I are in contact (sometimes) daily about the ’67 Beetle market. We joke a lot too. Reason? So many vintage VW’s are chopped up, lowered, and missing many if not all of their correct parts. Well, not this time. This L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle is as close perfect as it gets. Sure, a few usual suspects in the engine have been changed (Pierburg fuel pump, etc). But, it would not take much at all to make this gem perfect. Look at those correct color running boards, and fender beading. Who’s going to make an offer?

Info from the seller.
You are viewing what may be the best unrestored original vintage VW Bug in existence. We all know these great cars, were known for their reliability, gas mileage, and traction in snow, when most other cars didn’t make it home. No one I know or knew, kept these cars at home in the garage, and only used them occasionally on sunny days. I have over 150 photos of very remote areas, that I wish I could post, but eBay only allows 24, unless you attach your own site, which I don’t have. So, I’m posting a few of the outside, so you can see the original factory paint, and the dent and dimple free body. I’m also posting the remainder, of a small taste of remote areas, so you can appreciate the incredible original quality. Take a look at the original sound deadening material, on top of the floors, under the rubber floor mats. The upholstery looks new, all of it. I am probably the first guy, to open the original tool kit. I’ve also included a photo of the factory equipped seat belts, that are in excellent condition, that the original owner, replaced with modern units. This car will have you talking to yourself, and have you thinking, you just stepped out of a time machine. If this was a Porsche 356, the factory would be putting it in their museum.
