SOLD – L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle

For Sale – L620 Savanna Beige ’67 BeetleJust listed for sale here at 1967beetle.com. This is a very nice L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle, just waiting for someone to take it home. It does not get much better than this.

Info from the seller.

Offered is a one owner Volkswagen Beetle 1967 until July of 2006. This 1967 Volkswagen was bought new at Universal Motors Inc. in Huntsville Alabama by Neal Thompson on 7/13/1967 and has been a southern car ever since covering only 39,710 miles. When Mr. Thompson passed away in 1998 the car went to his surviving spouse Mildred Butler. After her passing the car was purchased by a close friend Lela Mayo of Bradford TN.

I purchased the car in February of 2008 after a multiyear search for a 1967 VW. Optional equipment includes opening side windows ($24), 5 whitewall tires ($35) and leatherette black interior ($30) for a subtotal of $1728 with the $72.95 transportation charge bringing the Beetle to a bottom line of $1,800.95. The original window sticker and owner’s manual are included as well as the original keys.

It is believed that the car had a rear fender damaged and when repaired the car was given a new paint job in its original Savannah beige. The paint looks very nice but has some blemishes in spots. The interior is all original paint and looks great. All of the door seals, front/rear hood seals and door window scrapers have been replaced. All glass is original with new seals. The headliner has been replaced as well as the panels and carpet. The dash and steering wheel look exceptionally good. Mechanically the car runs out great. The clutch is smooth, no oil leaks and everything under the hood is as it was from the factory.

The motor performs excellent and the brakes are very strong. This Beetle has new shocks as well as all new bushings and ball joints and needs nothing in the running gear. The undercarriage has a light patina and no rust. This is a well documented survivor 48 year old Volkswagen. As well as these cars were designed and constructed they were inexpensive transportation.

Thousands of them have been destroyed, modified and just discarded with very few surviving like this one. I am selling this car because of a disability that makes it very difficult for me to enter and exit the car. I hunted for years for a 67 of this caliber and now I am letting it go.

Wondering about the apparently non-1967 rear bumper. Was it perhaps replace after being damaged at the same time the rear fender was damage and re-placed? Otherwise, very nice original example!!!

Hello, D...Bumpers get replaced when damaged or rusted--this is a common practice. Knowing where this car has spent its life would lead me to believe that the chrome could have rusted. Ask questions about the rest of the car--especially fender wells and the under-carriage. Otherwise, from the photos, this car shows well. jay

Also ...both the rear and front bumper have the 'dreaded' plastic gromments between the towel bars and the bumper blade. Inexpensive (ie: rust prone) aftermarket items??

You got it! Yep, the telling sign of aftermarket bumpers. This car has a few small things I'd fix, but other than that..

What a great opportunity for anyone who wants a VERY clean and complete 67'! Not much at all to do to this one but enjoy and change-up a few minor things....

Both front fenders are German; that makes me very happy.

You know, if a person had an interest in a 67, and didn't want to go through the time & issues of bringing one "back", this car would save 'em money. It's a beauty for sure. I love the color! I love everything about it! Thanks for letting us see it! Sam G

Considering the car has always been kept inside, and the original mileage is only 39,000; it's strange that that the exterior needed to be repainted, and the headliner, carpets, and door panels all needed to be replaced.

Classified listings are paid listings. So, where we advise customers what to say and what not to say, there's only so much advice we can give. Everyone wants to market their car as a "survivor." Trust me, I get it.

Beautiful 67! The only thing that need immediate attention is the fuel hose slipping off the fuel pump and the filter location. Otherwise it's good to go!
