The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

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!

Bryan Lund chiming in here from Alamogordo, NM. I have my eye on a white 60's bug with standard transmission that the owner has painted the hood and fenders up front with a purple/white flame paint job! I have driven up to it, stared inside, lots of restoration aleady done. Heck, it's all been done! It's sitting in a used car lot, is driven often, but it's not apparently for sale. The owner works there or owns the entire lot. Anyway, just sharing this with you. I'll eventually have to call to find out more details. Enjoy your '67 Bug's!

Jay Salser - what's funny is I don't even know if it's a '67 VW Beetle or not. I'll get there!

Yes...but, the feeling that it "needs you" is still there, isn't it!? I have had the feeling scores of times. Actually about a hundred times! LOL Go for it! jay

Jay, oh yeah, I do have that feeling. I'll bet it's owner loves the car, too, but, who knows, maybe he wants something different. There is no "for sale" sign on the Bug. We'll see what happens. I have happy memories from age 16...Dad and Mom let me drive their '66 VW Fastback with the 4-speed standard stick. What a little trooper that Fastback was! That car and the happy times driving it when I was a younger lad is one of the main reasons I'm pursuing VW Bug's now.

Bryan...I bought many a VW that didn't have "the sign" on it. But, I found that if I asked about the car, but failed to carry-through with a follow-up visit or call, the idea of selling the car had been firmly planted. The car would then be sold no matter what. I've had countless people to tell me that the car was not for sale only to find a bit later that they had sold it. It's the planting of the "for-sale-seed" that does it most of the time! Even now, I feel the need "to buy". I have a couple on my horizon. We shall see if I have lost the knack to buy. LOL jay

Jay, man I looked at that white 60's Bug again today. It looks pristine...one of those "inviting" cars as it just sits still on the lot. Still no signs on it all. There is this issue of money, but, well...you know!

We have a family discussion: Does the early 1967 beetle comes with a 1300 engine (12 volts) or all 1967 are 1500.

I think I remember seeing an ad stating that you could choose between the 1300 and 1500 in other countries, but that 1500 was only engine size in the USA.

Good morning. Yes, Charlie is right. I'll let Jay weigh in on this one as well.

Correct, all US spec 67's(Deluxe models) were fitted with the 1500cc engine. Typically the export Standard model had the 1300cc engine, but could be ordered with the 1200cc as a less expensive choice. The "M" code for this option is #129.
