Featured ’67 Beetle — Gary Beck

Not long ago, I put an ad on 1967beetle.com looking for a clean L639 Zenith Blue ’67 sunroof. I thought the odds of finding one was a long shot to say the least. Well, as it turns out a reader from 1967beetle.com emailed me a said, “he had a nice one he might sell with only one prior owner.”

Wow, what are the odds of that?! Anyway, the next day I drove out from Southern California to the land of enchantment (Arizona) to check this ’67. It was great, just what I was looking for. (Rust free and accident free) Bret and I came up with a price for the car and I had it shipped back home to California.

Since I’ve had the car, I brought it to my painter in Redlands, CA and had him take everything apart and repaint the car the original color Zenith Blue. Then I took the bug to Lenny Copp at West Coast Classic in Fullerton, CA for an all new interior. Here are some photos of my pride and joy.

  1. Wow! What a beauty. There’s one thing missing tho………
    What’s her name? You have to name her!! LOL. Enjoy your car, it’s just beautiful.

  2. That’s a beautiful 67. Congratulations! If you ever want to sell it, I’m your guy. It would look good next to my white 64 out here in Illinois.

  3. Nice clean lines there, I like the running board rubbers, period accessory or factory option?
    Keep an eye on the braided fuel lines with the increasing ethanol content in fuels.
    Very nice car.

    • Thanks for the tip on the ethanol, I’ll watch for that.
      The running boards are the NOS color that originally came on the car and the fender beading is NOS Zenith Blue beading.

  4. Georgous car Gary and almost a carbon copy of my car! The only thing I don’t have is the whitewalls. The really spooky thing is my licence plate is also “peoples car” only spelt PPLS KR. Wierd huh?

  5. Hey Gary:

    I would like to paint or dye my black running boards to match the body of my Zenith Blue 67 beetle. How did you dye yours?
