SOLD — L282 Lotus White ’67 Beetle

FOR SALE — L282 Lotus White ’67 Beetle

Fresh on the market here at 1967beetle.com, this local Austin, TX L282 Lotus White ’67 Beetle is a gem. I love when the fender beading is correct, etc. Original cars are getting harder and harder to find. Who’s going to take this one home? Tons of fantastic photos below.

The car was originally purchased in September 1967, I am the fourth owner of the car. It was purchased in the 80’s from the original owner-this purchase restored the car superficially i.e. new paint, upholstery, cosmetic work. This owner had it until the early 2000’s where it was purchased by a woman who did not do much to it, just drove it to VW shows, etc. I purchased the car in January 2014.

I have all of the service records since the 1980’s including the work that was done by the second owner to spruce it up. I also have original service record stamps from the VW dealership in the original owner’s manual through May 1973 when the car hit 36,000 miles. Since I have owned the car, I have replaced the original generator with a new Bosch generator (in February 2014), and a new battery and Voltage regulator in November 2014. It has also been scrupulously maintained with all of it’s normal needs (valve adjustments, oil changes, etc.)

The odometer currently reads 94,464. I believe this to be original (i.e. it hasn’t turned over) but have no way of verifying this.

The car has many, many original features-too many to list. I guess it would be easier to say what has been replaced – the upholstery is from the 80’s (but seats are original), the generator, the voltage regulator, the radio, it has new carpeting in the hood, new tires.

It is mechanically sound and is my daily driver. It is reliable, has never broken down on me, driven in all-weather. The electric system is original and was next on my list to be replaced but I never got around to it. Gaskets, fan belt, and fuel line have been replaced as per regular maintenance demands.

This is a very nice 67 that appears to have both original front fenders,,,,,quite a plus for a purist 67 buyer. Am I seeing things in my advanced age, or does anyone else notice that the driver's side tail light is closer to the body than the passenger side? See pict #3. Were the 67 rear fenders unique, or could this just be a repro that doesn't match the original? Which side is correct? I'm not nit picking the car, I'm just curious.

Put a stock air breather on the engine and this car would look so much better--it's really clean! jay

The front bumper is aftermarket, the rear bumper is factory. However, with the seat releases on the side the rear bumper comes into question as to the over riders being correct shape. Also, the engine needs some love and there might be a question as to the dash being cut or not to get the after market radio installed.

Hi Richard! The aftermarket radio was removed and the dash is uncut. Thanks!
