Digging in the archives here at 1967beetle.com, we wanted to put this article in the spotlight once again. I believe this car has sense moved on to a new home. However, it’s rare to see a ’67 Beetle restored to this level. Attention to detail is everything.
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.
Thanks 1967beetle.com for the help on finding this car, and thanks to Bret for selling it.
