FOR SALE — L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle

img_0048

Like many ’67 Beetle owners around the world, Becky is a friend of 1967beetle.com. Jay and I gave her advice when she was first considering this car. It’s a gem with a history that would make any vintage VW owner proud. Unrestored cars like this are rare. In her own words.

To my knowledge everything is original. Had not been “restored”. Originally from Arkansas, I purchased the car from Arizona.

I am the 3rd owner. 60k miles, said to be original but of course no proof of that although when I purchased the car the title did read 56,000 actual miles. One cool thing is I have the original owner’s gasoline log and mileage tracking as well as his original school faculty parking sticker on the rear window from 1967.
The interior is excellent and original with the exception of the original floor carpet which is very worn in some places. The seats are in excellent condition. No tears in the headliner. Original glass windshield. Correct wiper arms and blades.

I have done a few repairs since purchasing the car in March of 2014. I replaced the carburetor (30 pict-1) and fuel pump. The front end was rebuilt by Kustom CoachWerks out of grand junction. Rebuilt brakes as well. The paint is original and has that beautiful patina! A previous owner has rougly touched up areas on the rear fenders. The body is in great condition with very little rust, but the rear fenders have quite a few dings. See photos.

The running boards are blue to match the car, not the typical black. Original rain guards above the windows. Bambus interior tray. See photos.

Car runs great for being 50 years old. It always starts right up. I do think there is a possible fuel pressure issue though. Original radio, works! The interior lights work.

I have the original seat belts, but I did add newer ones so that death didn’t loom every time I drove.
Heater works. Reverse lights are not hooked up. The rubber weatherstripping needs replaced on the entire car. I always keep the car in the garage from November to June.

I am selling because I’m moving to South America and need to be practical. But I love it, it’s been a joy to drive and I’ll be happy to see it go to a new human.

Hello, Becky--Having not heard from you in some time, I have wondered how you were doing. My wife and I lived in Colombia. S. America for about 14 years and enjoyed our time there. I hope that you will enjoy your experience! My observation of your car (through the photos) tells me that the mileage is original--the rubber "carpet", the German Weave carpet set, the original trunk liner still in passable condition, etc. The seats are the early '67 style with the seat-back release at the base of the seats. The original running board colored mats to match the paint color. It's going to make the new owner very happy. Our best wishes for your future, Becky! jay and neva
