I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

Nice looking 67! I dig this color and remember this color in the parking lot of my high school in the 70's. OLDVW!

Beautiful Bug! But might I ask, and I mean this be constructive, after going through so much work why not spend $20 and 1 hour of time to fix up the engine compartment?! Truly a looker!

Another great example of why I should start a company focusing only on the '67 Beetle. My sickness for details is a spot on.

It's something I think a lot about, and a long term goal for sure. It's a lot of fun to have a community of '67 folks enjoying what we do here.

Whoever buys it will have to push it out of the lot to the gas station

Good eyes Becky! Is it just me, or is it crazy to let the tank get that empty?

Gary says you guys are all "wussies"; he remembers the '60 Beetle didn't even have a gas gauge; his parents carried a wooden ruler in the family car to dip into the tank to measure how much gas was left. :-)

Very nice ride. Not to be critical but, I didn't see the ring that attaches the seat belts? The overrides on the back bumper are not 67's, and the gas cap isn't the stock type? Is the gas tank original? Sorry, but those are a few of the things that caught me eye with a car that has 69 k miles on it. A beauty for sure. Terry

Is that a cigarette lighter under the radio speaker or something else? Good attention to detail Terry! I'm impressed. Eric, Jay... some comments on the engine please. No comments in the ad about a rebuild and no underside shots. Hmmmm?

Wrong fuel pump, fuel lines, needs the correct decals, etc. Again, I'm a purist snob so... It's a great car, and would not take much to get perfect. Again, wait until LaneRussell starts restoring '67 Beetles. Just wait..

Wrong dist cap too. And that fuel filter has to go!

When Lane Russell offers retractable seat belts, hubcaps, or Sapphire V1 radios, I'll be first in line!

I appreciate everyone's detailed comments and "purists" eyes on this '67.

I delayed comment here. But for anyone "out there" who plans to sell a vehicle--attention to the engine compartment, to me, seems to be so very important. Eric and I maintain a watch on '67 Beetle sales. I monitor many on eBay. A good number of these have the appearance of restored cars but "fail the test" when it comes to detail. The engine compartment usually is the first thing that catches my eye. As one of our Readers has aptly noted--for $20 why not detail and correct that area of the car? Is poor engine compartment appearance indicative of something else amiss with the car? To their credit, I've had some sellers to respond to my suggestions in a positive manner and actually correct problem areas. Some of them just don't know what's correct or what sells a car to a Community that is so bent on detail. We are educating ourselves on these details and 1967beetle.com has been a big help--to me! We're getting beyond the folksy notions about the '67s and dealing with reality. I love it! jay

My '67 will get the royal treatment in the next few years, and I dare not do anything without the unanimous consent of the experts here. 10% more effort gives you triple that is a nicer car. A few questions I have now are is the uniqueness of the '67 front fenders other than the newer headlamp style? Is there more to them? And, what are the differences in the front and rear bumpers. Pretty sure mine are original thanks to owning the thing since '72, but I dont know absolutely. Would be nice to see side by side photos of pieces of a '67 Bug with other years parts. I have learned a lot so far in a couple of years reading this post every few days. Kept all the EM's for reference. Most of all, it has put my target goal in a much better place. Try not to make mistakes and get it the most right my money can buy. Thanks to all sharing in the education. I am surely not the only one.

Todde, Happy to help. The '67 front fenders were the first sloping version. They are just another one of those "one year only" items. The rear fenders have sloping over rider tubes that are again "one year only." Here's a photo of my own '67, so you can see the difference. A non '67 fender won't fit right, and will cause the deck lid to have issues closing. Hope that helps. The '67 Beetle community is here for you. You should read up on the one year only parts.
