Jack Hibbs’ ’67 Beetle

Featured ’67 Beetle — Jack Hibbs

This quick note was submitted by reader and ’67 enthusiast Jack Hibbs. Thank you very much for your contributions to 1967beetle.com.

Greetings 1967beetle.com,
I really appreciate your site and love for the best year Beetle. I grew up in OC, California where my dad was the service manager of then Garden West VW Motors, and Don Burns VW, Porsche, Audi. In 1979, I became the second owner to a 1967 Beetle and have had it ever since. Keep up the great work, guys!

Hello, I'm Eric. I started 1967beetle.com. I also own Lane Russell, a leading supplier of VW parts for your classic Volkswagen restoration. I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Nice 67! Clean and nicely stock. I also want to know where you got the Jack in the Box head in the garage? Awesome! :-)

  2. Nice.. I have never seen such a clean as was, stock classic beetle. Iv not had the chance to see that many beetles to begin with.. Lol
    And I had to go back to see what timm had seen.. But yes, where does one find the head off a Jack in the box ?
    Very nice beetle though. The collor even looks un faded. Iv nothing that stock. But I like them anyway.
    Once I figure out how, I’ll post a few pictures of our two 67s

  3. Really clean 67!!!

    Hey, check out the prices sellers are getting for some of the VW’s sold at the Barrett Jackson auctions in the last 6 years. Stock cars seem to get much higher prices…

  5. Jack-

    Nice ’67 and garage!

    I also grew up in the OC and my father also work as service manager at a number of dealers in the area. Started out with Ricketts Motors in Long Beach, Cotton Goff / Park Porsche / Audi in Buena Park, Saddleback in Downey, his own shop for a while and Bozzani in Covina.

    I would imagine that our father’s must have run into each other at one of the many VW conferences.

    I’m in the process of doing a pan off restoration of my ’67 that I acquired back in high school, 34 yrs ago. Bottom half has been completely redone and starting work on top half.

    Once done with it, I’ll be starting on the another ’67 that I acquired from my parents. They are the original owners and got it with all original paperwork down to loan docs showing a purchase price of $1,695.00.
