What’s different about the ’67 Beetle?
This information applies only to Beetles destined for import into the Continental USA.

The 1967 model of the Beetle Sedan (non Convertible) heralded several changes. Most of these changes are subtle and go unnoticed. I will attempt to point out those of which I am aware. A lot of the changes continued to be incorporated into later years as well.

Linas Barščevičius’ ’67 Beetle

Featured ’67 Beetle — Linas Barščevičius

Digging in the archives here at 1967beetle.com, we wanted to put this fantastic article in the spotlight once again. Our interest in people and their ’67 Beetles has travelled deep into Europe for this story. Linas Barščevičius lives in Lithuania. He has restored this ’67 and rallies it annually.

There are so many VW Beetles in the world. And every car and it’s driver have their own story. This is my story how I became a Beetle owner and a fan of classic VWs.

As far as I remember myself, I‘ve always been interested in old cars and automotive history. My profession and my everyday work are also closely connected with cars but the new ones. So, the idea of having my own old timer was just a matter of time and an acceptable offer.

Some years ago I started to work at Volkswagen importer office of Lithuania and got an opportunity to meet the guys from Lithuanian Beetle Club. I saw their passion to old VW cars and this encouraged me to study history of Beetle more deeply. And I was intrigued by the story of this car which was initiated by Adolf Hitler and executed by genius engineer Ferdinand Porsche. So, I stated to dream about having a pre-1967 Beetle.

One thing made my dream come true in a shorter period of time. It was my 10th wedding anniversary and my wife made me a surprise – a ride on T2 bus which was owned by President of our Beetle Club. Very soon after that, he sent me an internet link of sales ad. And I finally found what I was looking for – a nice Beetle Deluxe produced in January 1967. It stood in Austrian mountain town and was slightly damaged in an accident. Unfortunately, somebody bought it faster than me.

Eric Lindemann’s ’67 Beetle

Eric Lindemann's '67 BeetleHello, 1967beetle.com.
I’m new here. I love the stories that people tell about their cars. I guess it’s my turn to tell you about “The White Knight”.

It was 2002, and I was living in Georgia and my brother was living in New Jersey. He talked me in to coming to stay with him so that he could teach me to do on the computer what he does for a living. I am more of a hands-on type of guy, not so much techy, but I was willing to learn. He had me working and it was getting close to lunch time. He told me keep working while he got into the shower.

Well I hit a snag and while I waited for him I thought, “Let me look at the local classifieds for VWs, (not the samba).”

I came across a few but one really spoke to me: 1967 original owner Bug lotus white– no pictures, just the ad. I looked at a few others but saw nothing special.

My brother and I went to Panera Bread and had a nice lunch, and I told him about the 67. He told me to show him when we got back to the house. I went back to the Site and it was gone, but, thank God, I had written the # down. I called the # and Dwight King answered the phone and seemed a little flustered that I was calling about the car. He said that the ad was up for less than an hour and his wife Alice broke down crying that she couldn’t sell a member of the family. But he said it must be fate that I saw it. So he agreed to meet me where the car was stored.

Brandon Barnard’s ’67 Beetle

old phone 236Hello, my name is Brandon Lee Barnard the proud owner of 1967 Beetle that I drive every day. One night during the spring of 2011, I was heading to the track for a run when I hit a black cow in my Jeep. I spent a lot of time trying to decide on my next car until I stumbled upon her at a storage lot in Marshall, VA. Once I saw her it was love at first site, and I have been using my ’67 as primary vehicle ever since.

My Grandmother gave me enough money to buy my first car in 1996, knowing that she would not see me graduate due to her passing away. My Dad and I found a 1973 Super Beetle in West Virginia for $1500. My father used this car to teach me how to drive a manual, which involved a lot of driving in reverse around the school parking lot. I remember when the accelerator cable broke, Dad drove it across town with weed eater line from his hand out the window to the engine. I had a blast and ended up meeting a girl that was the president of a local VW club named, “The Obsolete Few”. I had my new car for about a year, when I hydroplaned and ran into a fence. The picture shows where the post came through the windshield and speared my head rest. Thank God for the angels he had watching over me that day.

After a few months I started looking for another bug, when the back bumper of a beetle that was covered in a pole shed caught my eye. And next thing you know, I was the proud owner of a 1967 faded Ruby Red beetle. I had that car all over the roads until I through a rod right through the engine block. My Dad told me to leave it sit until it was repaired, and I was a dumb teenager that didn’t listen. I just made it out of the driveway when it happened so I asked my sister to help me push it back in the yard. My loving sister said no because I should have listened to dad. Lesson learned. After high school I joined the Navy as a Machinist Mate on the SSN Hyman G. Rickover. I started a toolmaker apprentice job with GRW technologies after leaving the military. There we made car parts for Bosch and was fortunate enough to be sent to Germany for training. Unfortunately the company was moving to another state so I got a job near DC working for a kitchen/ stair& rail company for ten years.
