FOR SALE – L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle

FOR SALE – L633 VW Blue ’67 BeetleJust listed for sale here at This is a very nice L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle, just waiting for someone to take it home. It would not take much to make this car perfect. It has some interesting accessories that you just don’t see much these days.

This beauty was fully restored in 1999 by Clarke’s VW Restoration in Ocala, FL. At the same time, a new 1600 engine was installed and it was fitted with a custom under-dash Air Conditioning unit. I was not the owner at the time, but have receipts showing over $9,000 paid in ’99 for this restoration.

It has seen little road activity since then. I’ve owned it for 5 years (since October 2010) when I purchased it with 37,428 on the new engine. I have put less than 8,000 miles on it, for a total of just over 45,000 miles.

To say it’s a real head-turner is to be modest! Everyone seems to have a Beetle memory from their past, so it generates a lot of interest and conversation where ever we go. The engine runs strong, is peppy and can be used as a daily drive car if desired, or at least a weekend around-town car. Air conditioning has two fans speeds, rear-mounted fan and condenser mounted in front passenger wheel well. It needs to be recharged each summer for maximum performance, but blows strong, cools well, is not overly noisy, and looks like a factory install, not an after-market add-on.

Recent maintenance includes new rear brake shoes, master cylinder, new fuel pump and rear adjustable shocks. Regular oil changes and valve adjustments have been performed and documented. Only hi octane (91) fuel used. Tires have some good tread remaining. It’s not meticulous, show car quality, but close to it. Several minor issues worth noting include small paint chips interior and exterior (have been retouched), windshield washer not working, rear wheel white port-a-wall is scraped, heater lever doesn’t stay in up position, driver side window has some faint scratches. This will give the new owner something to do!

Crain-Daly Volkswagen — Atlanta, GA

Hello, ‘67 Beetle community. In continuation from my earlier mention of us relocating back to Atlanta, GA, I’m hoping to find this special license plate frame set. When my Grandpa purchased our ’67 Beetle new, it came from Crain Daly Volkswagen which was located off Piedmont Road in Atlanta, GA. This dealership is long gone. However, it would mean a lot to me if I’m able to locate them.

Do you by chance have this frame or possibly a set? If so, please contact me!

Also, take a look below. My Grandpa kept all the original documents from his purchase. Talk about a time capsule. It’s another reason this car will forever remain in my family.

So Cal – Big Wednesday VW Meet

timmA huge thanks to our very good friend Timm Eubanks of So Cal, for contributing his photography talents and time to Timm documented this year’s Big Weds vintage Volkswagen event.

“More than 100 Volkswagen enthusiasts – mostly buses but also Beetles – squeezed into the tight parking spots to show off, share stories and spend the day surfing at San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente. It seemed everyone had a story to tell down at San O, as it’s known by locals, during the annual gathering of Volkswagen aficionados who packed into the beach.”

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. With that…

You will learn nothing new in the confines of this article outside of luck, determination and deep gratitude! In any case, I was asked by Eric & Jay to share my “little experience” with my clutch pedal cluster that I disassembled by accident and put back together. Based on my total lack of mechanical expertise, you can do it too!

It all started after I read the recent article about Pedal Clusters and the articulation and organization of such parts. I noticed for months my very own clutch pedal on my 67’ had way too much free play and was a two full inches depressed beyond that of the brake pedal. It really started to bother me. Although the clutch worked fine, it looked bad and clearly it was not adjusted properly. So, I thought, “ I’m not a mechanic, what could go wrong. Let’s give it a go!!”
